Spring didn't arrive!
Spring didn't arrive in our neighbourhood today....no, we got 18" of snow and it's still falling heavily. I'm jealous of those of you who have spring blooms coming up :) I had to make a disappearing 4 patch for guild last month, so I decided on a baby quilt in '30s fabrics. I love the pop of solid orange around the blocks. I used 6 1/2" squares to start my 4 patches. It'll be for my hope chest....in hopes that one day I'll have some lovely grandchildren....(no pressure boys lol!) I just want to be prepared :)
How do you like my new little storage bin? I had seen a similar one on facebook, can't remember where, and roughly sketched out the design so Mr. RQ could make me one. Oh, and the handle, a spindle from an old stairway railing that we salvaged from a house that was being torn down..imagine that, another re-purposed item lol!
I had the pleasure of quilting this customer's lovely jelly race quilt. I love her fabric choices and the variety. It's not quite as "blended" a look as some of them have, like mine.
The kitties are growing like crazy. Lou, the long haired, is 8 months old now and the tortoiseshell, Liara, is just a tiny little girl for 9 months. They are so funny and keep us laughing every day. Laughing everyday is certainly good for the soul and keeps you young :)
I've been wanting to show you all some of the fun I had before Christmas working on wool things. I don't know which I enjoyed more...the pennies or the stockings. I have to get working on some more for little gifties.
Sorry to my followers that you had to read some nasty stuff yesterday.
