Coming Soon. . .

Everyone around here is waiting, not so patiently, for spring to arrive. We love / hate to talk about the weather, do we not?!

I thought I'd post these two photos of  spring's much earlier arrival from last year, just to set the mood a little. The reality this year is that our back yard is still covered in snow, though it has started to melt a little around the edges.  It is the time of year when our dog tracks in mud. Ugh.  It's seems very strange this year. The days are much longer, but we can't get out to work in the garden. Patience was never my strong suit.

It has, however, been the longest quilt season ever! I don't have much to show for it, though. There's a lot in progress at the moment. I'm slowly appliqueing hearts onto my red and white quilt. I've cut out another hearts and denim project to hand stitch during the summer. And I've been preparing a quilt to sew for a mini-retreat next Saturday. It's taking me a while to decide how to quilt the turquoise star quilt, so that isn't going very far either.


  1. Beautiful SUMMER day here today! I hope your spring arrives soon :-)

  2. Spring will come Ilene! I see tiny glimpses of it every day!

  3. Heh, its been a weird year of the never ending winter for sure, we still are getting lots of cold weather and very little warm weather, but I'm sure we are warmer than you are this time of year, so I'll write a cheery post on the summer to come for us. Hoping for warmer weather comes your way soon!
