Hand quilting, and spring!
Happy Monday to everyone! I have not been at the sewing machine for a while...I am in acute withdrawal! We took a road trip, and that is my time to hand quilt while dear husband is driving. I have quilted around all the center blocks, and now am working on the border. You really can't see the quilting, but when the quilt is completed, and washed, it will show up more. Right now the quilt is covered with strings and threads, which I will cut all at once, when the quilting is all done.
I found some twigs, and a pretty rock, and added some eyes...too much time on my hands (not)! I do love nature at this time of year...Spring is here! Flowers are blooming, all the trees have tiny green leaves, and the temperature outside is just perfect.
The first iris are blooming.
And another peeped out today!!
I played in the dirt, and planted my tomato plants, peppers, and some annual flowers...I love getting dirt under my nails! Do you like gardening too??
