thanks to our winter, the quilting on the hawaiian is over half done. the orange part is all quilted and now starting on the white background. thinking this will definitely be finished by end of march or maybe sooner (snow again this weekend....LOL). unashamedly bragging about how gorgeous this is...not worth 10k maybe like one in a hawaiian shop, but priceless to me. as for machine work, still working on scrappy solid project but this weekend must make my double pink stars for the brackman sew along....otherwise we are enjoying hint of coming spring with longer days of more sunshine and a definite change in the air. i even changed the desktop photo on my computer to lovely narcissus!

remember this? it's a block made some time ago from an issue of quiltmaker's 100 favorite blocks...thought it would be a fun project to use up some small solid pieces...worked on it some at retreat last year and decided to try and get this flimsy done. have no illusions about using all my scraps....that would be pure folly....but hoping to at least make a dent. purposely didn't pack the solids hoping there would be less to pack after it's done. it's a good way to celebrate being over the february hump, cruising toward march and spring. st. patty's day is just around the corner! and look what arrived on valentine's day....a surprise kaffe charm pack!
now that is what i call spring!
