I didn't think I'd have time today, but I'm just popping in for a quick note and a few pics.
Now that March is upon us, the temperatures are slowly warming and the days are getting longer. All the snow that has been dumped upon us is at least good for something. Perfect really, and I plan to make the best use of it in the next few weeks.
I was out snowshoeing 4 times last week with a friend and we have plans for this week too.
Today I had a couple of quilting friends over. Carmel has been wanting my help to get an art quilt started based on a photograph that her daughter gave her. She got the design done and the main pieces cut out. She went off with some directions to how to proceed and I'll help if need be.
Then, I had a bit of time to add borders to one of the shanties along with a bit more stitching. I still have a bit of white to add.
It measures 5" by 7". I often have to think about whether I want to border a piece and sandwich it or put it in a frame. Perhaps a frame would suit or even enhance it but I still seem to go for the traditional fabric border, batting and backing.
I've added the borders and if it sits well with me, I'll sandwich it and quilt some of it.
If you miss me here, know that I'm outdoors enjoying the sun and the snow.
