Hi everyone, I'm going to be kind of quiet on your blogs for a bit....because, *drum roll*, I finished the quilting on the green quilt! And I'm stitching down the binding!!!
And my hands and shoulders are killing me! Oh wait, that doesn't need an exclamation point. Look at the gorgeous vintage sheet I found to go on the back....
It matches the colors in the embroidery PERFECTLY. I'm sorry these pics are so bad, even though I was directly in the window and it was sunny, it was late afternoon.
So, until I'm done stitching down the binding, I'm going to be typing as little as possible. When I finished the quilting last night, I tried to answer some emails, and I couldn't feel my fingers, lol! But I got the quilt done. It was difficult to dance quietly - it was 4am and I didn't want to wake anyone. But dance I did.
My tree outside my window is making me so happy, it has blooms. Remember the barkcloth I found at the thrift store, and made curtains out of? Hard to tell in this pic, but it's the same pink as the flowers in my tree!
The blooms on that tree are the first thing I see in the morning, and a herald of spring - I love spring - I think that's the reason I've not gotten tired of these curtains, they've been up much longer than any others I've had. They remind me of my tree all year long.
More tree, on an absolutely gorgeous [but blustery] spring day.
I've had some company while I stitch. We have mourning doves nesting in our evergreen out front, and the male [I think it's the male] sits on the porch roof all the time and talks to me. Not a great pic, it's through the glass with a reflection.
I love the way they sound. It's so good to hear the birds again. Hello earth, so glad to see you waking up! Let's play!
I'll chat with you all soon on your blogs, I don't think it will take more than a couple of days to finish the binding. I've almost got one side done already this evening!
Some flowers at my mom's.
See ya soon!
