Spring Break

We're having an early spring here.  The weather has been warm and the trees are beginning to glow in that fresh lime green.

A few wildflowers have escaped from the woods and sprung up in the garden.  This is Hepatica.

These are Dutchman's Breeches. 

In the sewing room, two graduation quilts are cut and ready to go.

These are the fabrics I purchased to finish some of my redwork projects.

Here is the project laid out on the design wall.  The redwork pattern is from Aunt Martha's.

The finished project....after another trip to the quilt shop for the border and binding.  Now I have to decide how to quilt it.....hand or machine?

The grand-daughters came for spring break and besides cooking and baking, we did some sewing.  They picked out fabrics and stitched them to a piece of muslin to make little purses.  This is Audrey stitching away.

This is Katie's first time at the sewing machine. They both did a good job choosing fabric.

Ta-da!  The finished project.  They took them to church on Easter Sunday.

Things have been very busy here.  I'm caught up with my UFO's and started two new quilts, but the garden is beckoning.  Lettuce is popping up in the pots on the porch and the tomatoes are growing on the window sill.  So many things to do and so little time.

Here's the lettuce.  The chicken wire is to keep the squirrels from digging it up.

Well, I hope you are having a delightful spring.  I think I'm ready for a nap!
