Sunday Sewing Day
I think Sunday is my favorite day. I can spend the day (or at least most of it) in my studio, guilt-free, sewing; or sit with a cup of tea and do some handwork - also a favorite! Yesterday we awoke to about 8" or 9" of snow. Not a lot compared to my brother in Connecticut, who got between 25" - 30" of snow. Thankfully we were spared this time.
My perennial garden. Doesn't look like much now, but in a few short months the flowers will come alive again with lots of color !
My brothers house along the southern part of Connecticut. Poor Riley ..... how is she ever going to get out for her walk??? (there is a porch under all that snow ! ) What did the groundhog say last week about Spring?
I am finally caught up on the Sweet Hearts. Looks like a nice place to sit and stitch for awhile. Only thing missing is a cup of tea. Hmmm.. that basket of thread on the floor might be a little too tempting for our girls. I better go count them to see if any are missing and have been turned into cat toys.
I like this little wire basket. It is one of several that I got when my favorite quilt shop, Kindred Quilts, closed a couple of months ago. I miss the shop and the owner. Toby decide it was time to move onto other things like relaxing! ... and designing. She has a pattern in the current issue of McCall's Quilting magazine.
Love the colors on the cover of this issue.
I think this will be my heart block for Mardi Gras on Tuesday. Looks like Mardi Gras colors, no? The official colors are purple, gold, and green. I think I picked up this fabric in New Orleans, as a matter of fact.
