It got up to 54 today the sun is shining and it looks like early spring is in the air. That doesn’t mean we won’t have cold days ahead but at the rate things are growing I know it won’t be far off. I spent the last hour outside cleaning out a flower bed of all the dried up leaves and pine needles that had collected up over winter. I found things growing!
I have one more block to make for Row 10 on “Insanity Revisited” and then it will be time to sew that row on to the others. Then I will take a break from it once again and work on the March assignment for the “Star Crazy” quilt. I got all that printed out yesterday. I think I have pretty much decided that the “Little Brown Bird” quilt and the “Traditional Red and Green Applique” – each of which have only one block made will stay put aside for awhile while I get these smaller quilts quilted. Plenty of time to work on them later. It is more important to me to get caught up on quilt tops that need quilting. I don’t like having so many things waiting in line not finished. This time will give me time to put more thought into the “Little Brown Bird” I have decided there are many blocks in this quilt that I would rather not make and I am looking for blocks to substitute with. I have found several “lacy” type of blocks to reverse applique and entwine with flowers like the one block I already completed. I will most likely come up with a new name for the quilt because at this rate I don’t even know if there will be a bird in it!!
EDITED: at 9:17PM Odette from Chile left me a comment. I follow her blog although she hasn’t been an active blogger we exchange e mail now and then. The google translator doesn’t always do a good job but for any of you who occasionally go to her blog from mine I am happy to report that she and her family came through the earthquake well. I think she is a bit north of where the damage was and close to the border of Peru. I had e mailed her after the quake and was happy to hear from her, I had wondered of course if she was ok.
