Hi to everyone!! It seems that I post once a week...that is when I am off and the house is down to a dull uproar, and I have a quiet moment to myself. Thank you to those who have signed up as followers! Wow, how fun, and thank you for following my work!
Above is my nod to St. Patrick's day. This pattern is from Kim at www.kimsbigquiltingadventure.blogspot.com. She was so gracious to share a wonderful pattern and tutorial with all her fellow quilt bloggers, and I just fell in love with it! Please take a moment and see her quilt...it is just the best! She is also soooo funny, and many of her posts just make me giggle. Thank you so much, Kim!
Another famous blogger/quilter is Judy Laquidara. She and many of her readers are doing a Bear Paw quilt! I love it too. I did not get signed up for some reason for her e-mails, because I did not know when I would have time to work on the quilt, with my crazy work schedule, but I love it so much, I am following along on my own. Above is my scrappy block, and I plan 12 blocks altogether for a lap quilt. It was quite fun to sort through (not really, just pick up whatever was next in the stack) my fabrics and cut them up! 2.5 inch strips, and 4.5 inch squares...so the whole block is 14 inches. Fun, fun! Thank you Judy for the inspiration!
For those who are thinking spring may be forsaken, I have evidence to the contrary! I was surprised to find this beautiful Iris blossom in the garden this morning. See the still winter pale grass behind it? But I bet the grass is greening soon! I just love flowers so very much.
Did I ever show you my fish? This is a patchwork fishy...stuffed and with some beading in the bottom to give him weight. Button eyes...he is ready to take a swim!
Hope everyone has a wonderful, happy day!!
