Spring has arrived along with the yucky yellow pollen and strings from the trees that has everyone complaining. Also the damp weather makes for a visit from arthritis. But all in all it is a beautiful time of the year. On to more pleasant things.
Recently I have finished up a project that has been hanging around for a long time. It is a small Courthouse Steps. I think I will hand quilt this one.
I have also finished this quilt top. It was done as a “Mystery Quilt” at a local quilt shop. I have had the top done for quite awhile, but the borders created some problems for me. But now I can check it off the “works in progress” list. Yeah!
After finishing up those two I looked in my collection of projects to be started and decided that I would start working on this Philadelphia Pavement. The original quilt was made in 1895 by a Mother for her daughter in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. When finished it will have 2401 1-1/5 inch squares. This picture represents half of a quarter. Assembly is like putting a puzzle together, but it has been fun to see it all unfold!
Mr. Quilt and I planned a get-a-way to Fayetteville, Arkansas, but the weather forecast was not promising so it has been put off until May. I have two quilting retreats coming up, later this month and early next month, which I am looking forward to.
While working on projects I listen to audio books and right now I am listening to “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett. It is a very good and thought provoking. I would highly recommend it.
Guess that is about all that is new here in Texas.
