Technically, I guess it is Spring. I guess. Mostly it's been raining here. A lot. We are saturated. Good news is, I took the dogs outside a little while ago and I saw a clear sky with beautiful stars! And I can still see the prettiness out there from in here, and I can bring in a little of it to enjoy. It's just really messy outside.
Of course I have a new project. First of all I want to show you the backing fabric. Notice that copyright date - 1999! It is some that was given to me and I like it a lot. It's very soft.
Here it is all quilted and bound.
And here is the full view of the front of the quilt - a ten minute block. This one should have been oh, so quick to quilt, but my thread kept breaking. After re-doing lots of things and changing the needle, it did better. Just took a little longer than I expected. I do enjoy these blocks. They are huge - almost twenty inches square - and go together very easily.
I am once again working on the Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion mystery quilt tonight, or I was. But I noticed my machine was running slower and slower and slower, so I took it apart a bit and look what a mess! That is all cleaned up now, so hopefully it will be back to its usual perfection. If not, Mr. Muddling is standing by to render aid!
I do hope you are having a wonderful weekend and that you are finding plenty to make you happy. With all its problems and challenges, it's still a wonderful life!
Hugs and kisses,
