I got in some sewing time yesterday. This makes 2 days in a row of grabbing a hour here, another one there. The wedding quilt is starting to look promising. 17 of the 6" stars are together with many more pieces and parts to assemble. They don't take very long as I had a bunch of blue pre-cut before John arrived home. I'm beginning to like the looks of the blues and greens. I've been digging around in my stash but see a trip to my LQS for more lights. My vision is to keep from introducing another color and keeping to the blue/green. I've had a reprieve, the wedding date has been changed from first of May to mid June.
Antique quilts are facinating. While cleaning my MIL's attic on a trip to Kentucky, I found this wonderful quilt laying in a corner, slowly rotting away. I had to rescue it along with several others. It's seen a lot of love, the edges are all raggedy and some of the fabric has rotted. I think it belonged to her mother. I have no idea of it's age, what the pattern is called but I love it. The LaConner Quilt Museum is near by, I keep forgetting to take it with me when I go view their changing venue's.
The rain keeps on falling day after day, so depressing with so few reprieves between the storms coming in off the coast. Went out to check the creek the other day. The ground is so saturated from all this rain it is standing in puddles and running down along the side of the neighbors house. You can't see her house, but this is her backyard or what's left of it.
Yesterday I took advantage of a bit of sunshine to get outside and refill all my bird feeders. The poor birds have gone so long without the suet I put out for them during the winter months. My lawn is a sea of moss and sweeping off the winter debris on the deck was a hazard in the making. It's so slippery with mold My daffodils are poking their heads out of the ground so spring is definetely in the air. I can hardly waite to get out, dig in the dirt and plant the bulbs I never got around to last fall.
January brought John and I a treadmill. I'm into my third week of walking for 20 minutes a day. It's not much, but every minute adds up to feeling better, jeans that don't bind and a healthy heart. I've always enjoyed walking, this fits the bill without getting rained on.
My DIL is quite talented. I thought these were the cutest little Valentines day candy jars she's made. She's not a quilter, but very artistic.
