I think I mentioned in my last stash report post that I had accidentally stumbled upon a HUGE deal on a fat quarter bundle of Kona solids. Seriously, it was a *huge* deal -- $26 for the bundle of twenty luscious colors that arrived yesterday . . .
Isn't it purdy?! The colors for our guild's swap block this month are "solids" on a grey background, so I'll put this to use right away!
I wanted something for St. Patrick's Day for my little quilt stand and finally, after looking around through my patterns and online, decided to sketch out my own little something . . .
I'm thinking I'd print the blessing off on fabric and then outline stitch it and then use a combination of wool applique and embroidery to do the floral design that frames it. Did I forget to mention I'm wanting it for St. Patrick's Day 2015?! ;)
March is a big month of celebrations in our family, kicking off with Jocelyn's birthday TODAY! I can hardly believe my beautiful baby girl is twenty-eight years old. Where did the time go?! It seems like just yesterday she wasn't any older than Eleanor Pearl!
Happy birthday, my sweet Jocelyn!
After my walk yesterday morning a little flutter of color caught my eye behind the RV. Some past caretaker had planted a nice little plot of daffodil bulbs and so each year they continue to herald Spring.
This is the first bloom of the year ... it made me cry I was so happy to see it! (And maybe my hormone levels *do* need to be checked.)
And finally, Leia says . . .
TGIFF (Thank Goodness It's Feline Friday) !!!!
