Snow, wind & more snow :(


Seems that every time I look outside it's either snowy or gale force winds. So were is spring? I'm grumpy & not feeling creative at all.
I did go to the Quilt Guilds monthly all day Saturday sewing. Was I creative, no but I did finish unpicking the vintage 1958 hand pieced Bow Tie blocks that were supposed to be my husbands baby quilt from his paternal Grandmother. She finished blocks for a boy & a girl quilt, but passed away before piecing the tops. So finally I talked them away from my mother in law. At some time MIL decided to combine them into a top with solid navy blue sashing & borders. But nothing was matching up so she gave up & I ripped the whole top apart & plan to start over with some feed sack type fabrics. There are 87 blocks in various blues & pinks. I'm going to start playing in EQ6 to see what I come up with for a layout. Now I think I'll go see if my struggling tulips made it through the latest storms... Sure hope the weather changes before my trip to Salt Lake & the Home Machine Quilting show!!!

I don't blame you for being cranky about the weather. We had a taste of warm sunny weather last week, then it was back into the 40s this week. Enough already! Looks like you've got your work cut out for you with the bow ties, but it'll be a nice quilt when it's done.

Good luck with the quilt. I, too, hope the weather is better by May. It sure has been a cold wet spring. I'm ready for summer. See you soon!
