Up to 65 degrees yesterday and today – maybe 75 on February 7th – Wow! I have seen more than one daffodil ready to pop open – which does happen every year around this time but so often we then get snow and you see the yellow peaking up out of the snow – this year? who knows sounds like we will have an early spring.
In between being outside, running errands, walking etc I got just a little bit of sewing done. Scrappy Stars now has two rows put together. I think I will try to put together two more long rows of the scraps for the top and bottom of these two before I move on to the rest of the rows and then just build them one row at a time.
This one left over block from a baby quilt that I made last month was sitting on the cutting table so I put it together with insulate bright and batting and made a hot pad – binding to do – maybe today? I didn’t notice the quilting made kind of a wavy effect to the design – I must have been holding it too tightly in places as it went through the machine? no worry – it is just a hot pad after all – it was a little thick. Linking to Esther’s Quilt Blog today.
The windowsill is getting full in the dining room – the one area I have the most light at this time of year – basil, rosemary, and tomatoes! the white pot has sage in it that I grew in my gro-garden that I have dismantled and stored away again – it needs new light bulbs and I’m just tired of paying the price for those bulbs – pricey for what I grow – a couple herbs here and there are not worth the price of the bulbs. The bigger pot has six tulips planted – when I got my tulips late last fall I put six in the refrigerator to plant at the beginning of January and then I forgot – I planted them just before I went to my sister’s instead and I have 4 of them now coming up. I hope the tomatoes grow – I spend so much on small/medium tomato plants in the spring I thought I would try starting some in the house instead.
Yes that black top on the box is pretty darn dusty – it had been up high on a shelf when I moved things to the dining room and never dusted it – my bad! I took care of it after I saw the photo LOL
