Febuary & March !

  Its been a  very busy couple months ! We hibernated, We nested,  We settled in !
  Even with the snowing every 3 days. We were content to be hibernating.  I just open the door to let a bit  of sun shine in when  it was given to us. After the big job of painting  this  space, , It was time to  cut  some of the projects wandering  the mind... 
  At the family Christmas Lori picked out this print and we dug thru several boxes to  gather more colors. This will be assembled into large pineapple with the medallion centers and  strips around  the octagon.......

        I cant wait to get going on this one !!!!
  We 've had snow nearly every week.. the pile by the garage is taller than me. The path up to the deck gate is just that, a path !
   The spoiled puppies like walking Tim to the mail box n back.

  another of the projects wandering my mind..  I have colors in  box 'fermenting' for this one.  Then along comes the Sochi Olympics, and there is  my design !! all done in bright diamond shapes, the colors have movement.  I have the plan of taking many greens, springy green, margarita green,  Kelly green. mixed with  garden flowers, of coral, purples, yellows..  fading up into blues. sky blue, cloudy blue,  sun shiny gardens,, wild flowers............. and then this  tiny pic in the sale flyer showed up,  dissect that into  diamonds, and squint........... Its still in the ol head... but its drafted now, and the colors are in a box....  Its calling me ! can you tell ???
 .... always a project or 2 .... or 3....4...... and  shorts that need hemming so they don't look  quite as old & dutchy as I feel some days...; )  ................

 . and we've planted more seeds.... sooner or later summer will come !

  First I need to get the Paying$$ jobs done.

 My 'Stack The Deck' quilt is home form the MacNieder Museum just in time to  provide springy color in the front room.
 And Treys quilt is finally getting done

  Treys quilt was a gift for Christmas given in Jan,  with quilting promised in Feb during Olympics. and finally done mid March, loll He may recieve it before summer  yet!

 . I got out and attended the local Guild. They made new market bags. This is done up with fabrics from Australia.....  acquired from a long ago chat room  group  xo
....and then one night I had ants in the pants and changed the room around......again...

                                              Henry came to check it out !
  so here we are  nearing the end of March already, I'm   busy getting red stars done for commission job, then onto Lori's quilt,  cutting projects to toss in the RV, a quilt show weekend to prepare for.  Then I'm thinking we are off to wander in the RV. .... bring on the warmer weather !!!!
