We had a very snowy day here on Quilt Island this Monday March 2. So snowy that the town office where I work was closed. A good day to sit and sew, I know you will agree. With my DD home from college and using my sewing room since her bedroom is too cold, I packed up some applique supplies yesterday so I could sew all morning while she slept.
Mid-morning I stopped working on the "laurel spray" block from the Marie Henry book I am using. Hmm. What's wrong with this picture?
These blocks are all on point! Thankfully, I did notice before I got any more done. I clipped all my stitches from the back and re-positioned the bias stem and started again.
By late afternoon I got this far. I really like it! I will put this away for another day. I need good daylight to sew, otherwise I have a hard time seeing the thread.
Sunday afternoon DD and I drove to Cottonweeds so I could sign up for a miniature class in April. The store was packed with women shopping! I forgot they were having a sale. I helped the economy by buying some fat quarters, needles, and a chalk pencil. Don't say I don't do my bit to help the country.
Take heart, my snowbound friends, the first day of spring is in 18 days!
