Spring has arrived!

 At least on the calendar.  Things are slowly waking up here, but very few wildflowers can be found.  The yard is full of crocus, though!

I'm heading down to the Towpath tomorrow, where I hope to find a few blooms.

I've had so little energy the past few days, I can barely force myself to even stitch.  But I did play along with FNSI on Friday night, when I finished my green hexies for March RSC21.

Last week I finished quilting Ruby Jubilee by Kim Diehl.  It laid around entirely too long waiting for inspiration for one last section.  And it took no time at all once I decided what to quilt.

And then there's Winter Village.  Since this photo was taken, I've done all the applique, and it's in the to-be-quilted pile.  I'll be doing an all over design on this one, so it won't take too long.  

Since we last spoke, I've had a birthday and received a lovely gift card to JoAnn's.  I had to pop in last week for some buttons, so I perused the book section.  This was a very frivolous choice, but it's a birthday gift, right?  I haven't sewed in a zipper since I was in school, and as you can imagine, that was more than a few years ago.  But there's a small bag in this book that I MUST have.  I've already recruited a sewist friend if I need help.

So that's what I've been up to.  What about you?  I was shocked to realize I hadn't posted in over a month.  I thought it was only a couple of weeks.  Time flies . . . . 

Keep on stitching!


  1. Our crocus don't have buds yet but it shouldn't be long - loved seeing yours! Happy Birthday! ~Jeanne

  2. The flowers are so pretty!
    Great to see your Ruby quilt getting quilted, and to see your Winter Village top finished. They are both stunning.
    Good luck with your zipper!

  3. Lovely to see the Spring flowers starting to bloom! Your quilts are just gorgeous and I am sure you will love your new book! Have a wonderful week! Christine xx

  4. Pretty Crocus flowers.
    Well done on finishes Ruby Jubilee. I find deciding how the quilt is the hardest so I just ditch or stipple....
    Love Winter Village of course as blues are my favourite colour....
    Enjoy making the bag from your new book. XX

  5. Happy Belated Birthday Sunny! Enjoy your new book. Your Ruby quilt is incredible! And I love the blue houses, as blue is my favorite color. I hope your energy returns this week.

  6. What pretty spring flowers right in your own yard!!
    and what lovely quilt projects--and that book looks really interesting!!
    sorry about the low energy--but you are not alone-I think we all have those days--esp now with being having to be home so much--though you would think it would be the other way around???
    take care--luv, di

  7. It is definitely nice to see the promise of Spring again. Your hexies look good and that Kim Diehl quilt is fabulous. I love stopping at We pass through western MD on our way to see the kids. I used to make it a point to stop at The White Swan Quilt Shop near Hagerstown. Since they closed, any suggestions for another "mandatory" stop?

  8. I love seeing the crocuses popping up this time of year.

  9. I haven't been on the computer for over a month. I'm glad to see you are stitching and completing such lovely quilts.
