Spring Quilts - A Break from Winter


OK - It may not look like it -- but this is going to be a Spring wall hanging  for my kitchen. I got off of work-- ran home-- grabbed my snowboots and camera for this photo. we didn't get a flake of snow over the weekend.  Despite the bulletins and warnings-- not a flake.  North, South, East and West of us got dumped on...

I stitched on the borders tonight.  We'll update tomorrow. 

I'm a list maker.  Everything but a little handstitching has been checked off today.

Gratitudes:
Email from A Quilting friend. She wasn't lost-- just had a broken PC.
A new Muffin Pan
Gumbo for Supper

beautiful fabrics! and we have your snow; it's been snowing all day; I was actually thinking of breaking out the sandals tomorrow. I want spring!

We got your snow! But my snowmobile gang is happy and is planning a weekend getaway. More quilt time for me in an empty house!!

I love the idea of the new quilt project. And this wallhanging of yours is a good one as well.

All is right in the world once again, friend! It's great to be back :D
