It's spring...NOPE!

This pretty much sums up the weather around here...

Yesterday it was 65 degrees...today we woke up to this...

My frog is not happy...and neither am I! LOL

Time for something new

Since I'm still in the process of using up what I have, and since I just finished a quilt, I decided it was time to pull out another project tub and get to work. I had some jelly roll strips left over from the fabric I used for my Goodnight Irene, and I had some batik charm squares in neutrals, so I started cutting fabric and making nine patch blocks. The quilt will look something like this when it's done, but maybe smaller.

Here are the blocks I have finished so far. I'm just going to make as many blocks as I can and see what I end up with. I know I'll have to buy fabric for the alternate blocks as I have nothing in my stash that will work for that.

It seems like sunshine has been so rare this spring. Today is a lovely, windy, warm day and I hope to get outside later to enjoy some of it. I just finished trimming the loose threads off the front of my five and dime quilt. I used my new sewing machine the other day to make and attach the binding, and it sewed like a dream. I'm happy with the machine and happy to have this quilt finished. I used most of two layer cakes and two charm packs for it, and it came out a nice lap size.

Camouflage stitching

A couple of weeks ago I finished up a secret sewing project. It went off to it's new home today, so now I can share it with all of you. I made up this little stitchery for my son and daughter-in-law (they got married two weeks ago). I did the stitching in camo thread and then framed the stitchery with camo fabric and put it into a black frame. I was very happy with how it came out, and they loved it. :0)

In the mood for a comedy?

I hadn't heard of this movie, but I saw it posted on a blog the other day so yesterday when I was at the library I picked it up. I have to say it was the funniest movie I've seen in ages! Strange too, but in a good way. Anyway, I highly enjoyed it. If you're a Jane Austen fan, you just might like it too! :0)

I got my star wall quilt finished days ago, but things have been so crazy here that I haven't had a chance to get a picture of it yet. I've done that now and here it is. I just need to find a place to hang it on the wall.
