Don’t dwell on this being an ‘ugly’ picture, because if you’re living in the U.P. of Michigan this photograph of the garden is as beautiful as if it held a bounty of vegetables. A picture that looks like this means the snow has almost all melted and we just about have another winter behind us. It was 72 degrees yesterday, and back down in the low 50’s today. But in March you take what you can get…. Last night we swung on the porch and had the Screen Doors pulled until sunset. It’s a pretty safe bet that the snow isn’t over, but one can hope….
I’m still plugging away on my Primitive garden block of the month and I’ve pulled fabrics to start a quilt this weekend. I’ll have to take some photos. I did want to share a piece that I made about 15 years ago. She’s a bunny I pull out at Easter time. I love her grey eyes. The dress has gathers that resemble smocking (something I plan on learning to do one of these years) and Clooney lace around the neck. She’s made of muslin that was tea dyed. I don’t remember the pattern name… but it’s definitely the eyes that make her a keeper. I’m off to take advantage of the sunshine…
