Warmer temperatures bring a mixed blessing out here in the Breaks....
|the quagmire that is our yard and driveway during any winter or spring thaw|
is this TMI?
I suppose it becomes a matter of where you choose to place your focus...
|looking beyond the yard, to the horizon...|
I know, corny, right?
In the meantime, the mail was worth Friday's arduous trip to fetch it :)
Look at this sweet package that arrived from our Hoosier buddies...it seems Miss Hannah has her little brother started in the yarn arts as well! Check out his little potholder! I am tickled...orange! with all this homemade goodness!!
Mrs. Romans also sent along the Irish Chain book, which is so timely since I will be making one for my #2 son this year! My Mother-in-Law has this very book, so I am familiar with it and just love having a copy of my own! Thanks so much y'all!!
|is this not the sweetest trivet? I just love the pattern...and it is two layers! Very cool!|
I also received this sizeable piece of lovely that I ordered from Stash Fabrics, which will bring me a little closer to finishing one of my Q1 goals. I had been keeping an eye out for a backing.....
This "Olavi" in Rosey Cheeks, by Lotta Jansdotter, seemed to be just the right mix of mild color and bonus "gingham-esque" to go with the rather odd mix of fabrics that is my Fly Home quilt.
|I wasn't looking for a "perfect match" as such...I think I will love them together!|
On another random note, does anyone else keep a collection like this?
When I see these peeking out at me, I am reminded that, yes, I have bought and still have, plenty of pretty fabrics :)
Those of you who swap and such must really have the memorabilia of this friendly quilty world!
My little garden of "roses" is growing...
I am thinking, at 9" each, as long as I have some gingham and any Kate Spain, it will just keep growing for awhile :)
no hurry, no worry....
I will leave you with one last little bit for this week....
I am actually beginning to have a stack of quilts! Oh joy!!
(Ready and waiting for February!!)
I will be joining the get-together @ Sew Fresh Quilts "Let's Bee Social" :)
