I know spring doesn't start until the 21st but looky here. My mini pansy's not only survived the winter, they are blooming.
Ditto for the crocus that are by the chimney. They are always a sign that spring is here for real. We may still get some frozen stuff but it's usually of the snow cone variety. Our chance for any real snow is zilch.
I am going to welcome spring by working on a mini quilt that will go with Daddio's St Paddy's Day table runner. I love Daddio's table runners. I'm so glad I made him make me a bunch of them.
As for my February mini quilt, it's still NOT quilted. I didn't have any pink thread. Can you imagine that? I'm going to go pick some up this weekend.
I did start free motion quilting Daddio's wedding ring lap quilt. It's nothing to brag about but I am feeling comfortable enough with the machine now to do more than just stippling and loop de loops. My nightly date with Angela Walters is paying off.
The quilting is so pretty!ReplyDelete
Spring... so warm and wonderful! We have -15C and wind. LianaReplyDelete
Oh that crocus! I love the color. Anything purplish always makes my heart go pitter patter. Gorgeous job on the quilts. On the weather front, we’re under a snow advisory. Big surprise there isn’t it?ReplyDelete
I love pansy Flowers. My phone is showing snow tomorrow!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful flowers to give you pops of color and hope of Spring! You are doing great on the free motion quilting!!!! Lovely!ReplyDelete
Spring blooms always make my heart sing!ReplyDelete
Sooooo jealous of your flowers. I bought myself some tulips at the grocery store to bring a little spring to the house.ReplyDelete
And... if there's one thing I've learned about quilting, it's the little mistakes tend to disappear in the finished project.
That wedding ring quilt is totally fab!!ReplyDelete
oh pansies! So far we have seen one robin and the willow tree branches are becoming bright yellow. Thats all we got. Fireman and I are headed out to take a tree down that's strangling the pear tree out there. It is cold but sunny. Wish us luckReplyDelete
I love Daddio's quilt. I have a similar one from my grandmother. Love your beautiful flowers, so pretty.ReplyDelete
