Last week was a total tease!  The weather was awesome.  My crocus where croaking,  gardens coming alive.....and now it's OVER

the sun, the sun


ready or not here we come

the turkeys traveling across the yard....a daily event and right of spring


My design wall has not changed in 2 weeks. But quilting machine has seen a few quilts.....pictures later.
Sunday was a quilting day...Amoskeag Quilt Show was the event to see.....Donna McDowell (the queen of hand work) won hands down :)
There is just no competing with her work.

Later this week I will post the quilts off the machine.  Keep Stitchin

I have the blue fabric picked out for my cornerstones and the gold for the sashing (on left)
the beige I have just about talked myself into for the setting triangles with the brown print for the final borders.

Ok, here we go....off into the world of blogging.  Hopefully this will show what is on my quilting machine, what I am working on for my sewing machine; and all the other "stuff" going on in my life. I hope to post weekly
