Nothing much is getting done around here, all I want to do is huddle under quilts. Lots of quilts. Every quilt I've ever made. Even though I live in a place where this happens every year, and it's not a surprise, I still don't like it. It's mornings that hit me the worst - crawling out from my warm, cozy nest to a frigid room is not on my favorites list.
I've been working on my daisy quilt. It's not going to be a full-grown quilt - I'm doing 3 rows of 5 blocks each, and it will be the new curtain for my sewing room. Half curtain. I really like it a lot - the whole background is pink, and a daisy on each block. It reminds me of the old-fashioned bathing caps with all the flowers. It makes me happy.
I had a hard time deciding how to applique it. Blanket stitch by hand didn't look right. Blanket stitch on the machine made it pucker. I finally decided on straight lines, 3 times around, using a stablizer under it. I LOVE it.
Mum and I went to visit my friend Shirley, she just got a new puppy. A Standard Schnauzer named Greta. Oh she's so cute!!! And SMART. She has some funky attachments on her ears, to keep them upright - it'll take 6 weeks before they come off.
You can't see in the pic, but her fur is really lovely. A light grey undercoat with longer black hairs on top. Pretty girl.
This is the tree outside my sewing room window - in spring, it's covered with tons of pink blossoms. Don't ask me what it is. Nature and I get along best when seperated by glass.
It's wearing a winter covering of snow. I took this pic for Midge, I think she has more snow than we do.
Did you see Jenny of Elefantz's new patterns? Four of them. Must. Have.
