Is it Spring? The crocuses are starting to bloom, and there are Robins everywhere. It’s going to be very cold tonight and tomorrow, and then the warm temperatures return. Hopefully it will stay warm. Most of the snow is melted, and I don’t want to see any more!
I spent FNWF sewing the binding on this little quilt.
The quilting on it isn’t fancy, but it was done on my Sweet 16! It’s all straight lines, following a ruler. On Saturday, I went to a not-so-local quilt shop to look at other rulers. Unfortunately, they had packed up their floor model and all the rulers and had taken them to an expo. What a disappointment.
I also worked on the next border of my Relaxing Robin over the weekend. Our assignment was to add a border with triangles. Do you think this qualifies?
On Monday I celebrated a birthday. I received a lovely package from Maria.
The table runner colors are beautiful!Several months ago, I admired the pin from her Patchwork Club, and now I have my very own! Thanks Maria.
Last year, Anthea and I discovered that we share the same birthdate. She suggested that we do a swap this year, and this is what she sent:
Another beautiful table runner, and a wonderful pouch, complete with tiny little pincushion and needle book. I’ve already filled the pouch with supplies for the Crazy Quilt class that I’ve signed up for.
Here is the sewing machine cover that I made for Anthea. Apparently, I didn’t take any pictures of the other side, which has Anthea’s name stitched onto it.
I’m off to another retreat tomorrow afternoon, so I hope to have more to show next week. And does anyone remember the SAHR from a couple of years ago? I’ll be revisiting that very soon.
