Catching up

Wow, it's been 5 days since I posted here--unusual for me--unless I'm away which we were supposed to be. I felt like I was coming down with the cold and didn't want to pass it on to anyone, so we stayed home. Despite it being a guild quilting day, I opted to spend the day at home, and even though it's a gorgeous day here, I didn't even go snow shoeing which I've doing almost every day.

The days are getting longer, brighter and warmer, and with all our snow it's wonderful for winter sports right now.
Anyway, I needed a domestic day. Also, I've had a couple of quilting projects that I've been lugging to all my quilting days and retreats and they were calling to be finished.
This morning, I added the last borders on the garden fence quilt. It fits my bed perfectly and the color in my bedroom is perfect with it.

When I travel for the SAQA retreat in April, I will take it to get it machine quilted.

After lunch I made a half size rhubarb crumble for my husband and I from the rhubarb I froze last summer.

Then, I sandwiched this x's and o's baby quilt. I will quilt it myself, but plan to take it to our next UFO day for that.
I feel better now that those chores are out of the way so the next time I sit dwon to my sewing machine it will be to work on my art pieces.

I actually have almost finished my two little shanty pieces but didn't photograph them yet.

I can't leave without adding my bird photo of the day. our deck and yard has been teeming with many species of birds. Recently the waxwings moved in to finish off the few dried apples left ithe tree.

Your garden fence quilt is looking lovely on the bed - do you have a plan for the quilting?

The garden fence quilt is lovely. I love the colors.

Both quilts are absolutely amazing. They are just so beautiful. Glad you did not get really sick, so many nasty things going around right now.

The way the waxwing is puffed out, he is almost the same shape as the apple!

Você nos mostra coisas muito bonitas. Seu trabalho está lindo e o passaro é adoravel. Muito bom ter passaros em volta apesar da neve e do frio.
Um abraço!

You show us very beautiful things. His work is beautiful and the bird is adorable. Very nice to have birds around despite the snow and cold.
