Hello February. Seriously? I'm sure there are more than a few of you eager to get this winter behind us. It has been chilly (for us) and rainy this year. I know that I am ready for some sunshine myself. Everything is beyond saturated - including myself!
Rainy outside means more sewing time inside. The Scrappy Mountain Majesties blocks have gone from a UFO to a completion. I ended up finding the perfect border fabric in my stash. I loved all the colors that were brought out in the quilt when I added the borders. Final size of the quilt is 72" x 82" and it will go to a grandson who requested a quilt for his college apartment.
Today is the day to share our second block of the Bloom SAL, hosted by Cheryll. I have so many vintage 30s fabrics as well as some of the reproductions so thought this would be a good time to use them. I am mixing older and newer together and hoping to make a dent in that bin.
Our Queen Bee in our Gridster Bee for February is Elizabeth. She is doing such sweet little houses. I'm looking forward to seeing this one finished.
We finally had a sunny day last week and I was able to get out in the garden and finish pruning my roses. These poor little buds were still barely hanging on, but it was nice to have a small bouquet to bring in the house in February.
One advantage of all the rain is the lush green that is now our world. The hills have gone from the dead brown to the living green again.
One of our granddaughters is studying abroad in Florence. She texted me a picture of this wine bottle that she said reminded her of me. I wonder why. I think I need one to use as a vase in my sewing room.
I loved this cute cartoon that was on our guild's FB page. I have no idea who the author is, but it spoke to me when I saw it. lol
