Meanwhile, the weather is warming, things are greening and I’ve also been spending some time cleaning, mulching and planting in my garden.
I’ve got a few things up in the raised bed which I can view form my studio. The lilacs are just opening and we have chickadees nesting in the birdhouse on the pole near the back of the yard. Things are changing everyday; I love watching all the different flowers and blossoms opening.
I’ve finally gotten the top of the Cascades baby quilt finished. It needs trimming—finished should measure about 38” by 48”, a pretty good size. I will leave the quilting until later as I need a gift for a new baby.
I do have some art pieces to finish up and lots of ideas for new work but there is too much going on right now. I am happy to continue working on UFO’s. With my new studio cupboards all organized, it’s easy to see all my fabric and projects and I’m inspired to get more things done. This is a section of selvedge edges that I’d started to make a cover for the back of my computer chair.
It needs batting and some quilting before I’ll make a simple slipcover for the chair back.
Our Northstar Quilt Guild has a show going on this weekend which I’ve not helped with. I did pop in for viewing quilts yesterday and spent some time and money in the shops. I ordered a cute pattern for a gnome quilt and bought more batiks for the Majestic Mountain quilt that I’m making. I didn’t even get pics. There are so many beautiful quilts and displays and even a bed turning. I think it has been well attended.
I contributed a lap size Hallowe’en quilt, one piece of fiber art and this Twister bag.
