Spring is finally here although I really cannot complain about our mild winters. It is always nice to see the new life coming to the gardens as well as blooms bursting forth on fabrics.
The Block Lotto blocks for this month called for posies in blues, purples, pinks and reds. This was a really fun pattern and will make a great quilt.
A walk around the garden awakens the sights and smells at this time of the year.
The kumquats get the canning season off to a productive start. Yummy marmalade awaits.
I've been sewing as well, but not a lot to show for the time spent. I've been working on a Round Robin and thoroughly enjoying it. Since it is a surprise, I cannot show it yet.
March has brought lot of fun blocks to my mailbox from our Spelling Bee. Can you guess the theme of my requested words? The used fabrics are just as exciting as the words.....such clever participants!
I am one of those people who have always loved batik fabrics and I was fortunate enough to recently win a giveaway of some of the Island Batiks from Jocelyn's giveaway at Happy Cottage Quilter. These batiks are so soft and unlike many other batiks. They will be fun to sew.
Linda is this month's Mid Century Modern Bee queen this month and requested some mini Churn Dash blocks. I popped mine in the mail and completely forgot to photograph them before I sent them on their way. This is going to make an amazing finish. You can check out her blocks HERE on Flickr.
Our youngest son and his family will be home later this week for Easter. The computer time will be limited while we enjoy their visit so I wish all of you who celebrate a very Happy Easter.
