I shouldn't complain about this winter that just won't quit. It is still much colder and / or snowier in other parts of the country. Brrrrr. We had our first day of above freezing yesterday, and the sounds of chipping ice off the sidewalks could be heard all over the neighbourhood! And my cats have spring fever something fierce. In out in out in out in out. . . . It is nice to hear the cardinals singing their spring songs, though.
Meanwhile, I've been working slowly along on a few quilts. I've been doing some handstitching on this Red and White quilt. I've decided to add more hearts in those central white patches, so I had to cut out a lot more. I'm getting the skinny vine laid down, too. There is a lot of applique to get done, so you probably won't hear about this quilt again until later in the year, when I have it all put together.
And I now have backings and tops made for these two quilts, the Red and White Log Cabin, and the Turquoise Star. I'm starting to think about sandwiching them, but I'm not there yet.
