Spring Projects



























































































































































































It seems as if the days are flying by and of course they are.  I'll post a Sunday scripture and the next thing I know, three weeks will go by in the blink of an eye.  I've been busy sewing for market, getting caught up on other quilting and I managed to squeeze in a trip to Georgia to see my brother and his family with my niece and great nephew.  I can't stay focused right now and I'm blaming the weather which can't seem to stay focused either.  I sew awhile, then knit awhile, then read, then stitch. I'm constantly bouncing around but somehow I manage to get things done.  My latest antiquing discovery was this little button box with the sweetest colors.  So much to do, but I'm itching for an adventure, how about you?

The Colors of Spring



































































































































































































































I hope you had a wonderful Easter with family and friends!  The weather here was spectacular and we enjoyed good food with family after a lovely Easter service at church.  He is risen!  He is risen indeed!!  I finished my spring quilt yesterday and couldn't wait to show you.  The pattern is from the book, Easter Threads by Need'l Love and is called "Easter Parade".  It was very fun to make. I think the dusty aqua fabric really makes the quilt, it is from the Notting Hill collection by Robyn Pandolph. The pillow was made last year and is from the book also. This is the third project I have made from the book and certainly not the last.  Don't you just love the colors of spring?  My friend Stacy, who I had the pleasure of meeting this past year at the Swapaholics Retreat,  sent me the beautiful mini quilt.  Stacy's quilting is divine!  The quilt is the perfect backdrop to my new Easter decoration, the Thorn of Crowns.  I just love them both!  As you can see, Easter decor was popping up all over the house.  It is so refreshing and I plan on leaving it out for a long time! I pray you are having a good start to your week!
