The calendar and the vernal equinox say that it is spring today. And I am truly jealous of more southern states that are lucky enough to feel warmer breezes and see daffodils and such. Wisconsin is NOT ready ready for spring. I can say that I have seen several robins arrive. Where they get there food is a complete mystery to me as we are between snow storms here. No buds, no blooms, no green here.
Here are some lovely shots of the surrounding roads outside the city showing the current status of our weather.
And I did make some St. Patrick's Day crème puffs with mint green filling and chocolate and sprinkles on the top. Delicious!
So my sewing is progressing. I have my ocean waves back from the quilter and have made a scrap binding for it. My goal is to finish the binding this week.
I also added a 3rd row to my 9 patch scrap quilt. Each row requires 64 3 1/2 inch 9 patches. And many units are already made for the next one.
I was all set to assemble a quilt where I have made 60 hourglass units with 4 squares ( 5 1/2 inches) and 110 mini ones (2 1/2 inches) I ordered a blue fabric that was to be more navy for the setting. But it turned out to be royal blue. So now what to do with 4 and 1/2 yards of it???? And I have to find another navy blue.
My quilting goals for the week:
Attach and hand sew binding Ocean Waves
Finish quilting Mini trees and maybe mini hourglass quilt
2 blocks for Snowmen.
