I was just plain busy yesterday with outside stuff and didn’t get a lot of quilting done. How about you – is the weather finally getting warmer where you live – or maybe colder if you are down under!
I spent a couple hours yesterday continuing to spray wash my deck and I am getting close to being done but not yet! I will try to finish it up today. Other than that I also planted more flowers, picked up small branches that fell off the trees in the last storm (I was slow what can I say it has been awhile now since the last storm) also I started to turn the dirt over in the small garden that I keep preparing it for tomatoes. I didn’t finish that either! I will be busy the whole weekend. We are staying home for Easter and will be doing outside stuff.
I did get a little more done on the Red and Black Checkerboard quilt - it is nice taking the time to just work on something simple sometimes – this I am quilting with Red Perle cotton number 12. I am still not used to using a large needle but in order to get the needle threaded it must be a big one. None of my needle threaders want to seem to last – the wires get pulled out so easily. I do have a clover desk top threader but it won’t thread these needles.
And a little more was got done on the Patchwork of the Crosses
