Spring Has Sprung
Or she will by 5:45 PM CDT. And not a moment too soon. And it looks like she’s bringing some nice weather, at least to our neck of the woods … weekend temperatures will be in the 60s.
I’ve got 5 of the 7 rows of Kiss blocks sewn together. I need to sew on the last two (they’re already sewn together, so I have just one seam left to stitch) … then I need to check all the outer edge seams to make sure that none of them have worked loose, followed by stay stitching along the outer edge so nothing will work loose while I’m quilting on it. I’ve got the backing, washed and dried. I’m just not sure when I’ll get to make my quilt sandwich as I’ll be at DD’s today and perhaps tomorrow … I’m watching the Ts while she attends a homeschooling convention in St. Louis. I’m hoping to be able to share a picture of at least the top by the end of the weekend.
DH and I spent yesterday morning doing some overdue shopping for some home improvements. We’d been talking for some time now about upgrading a few things around the house, and we finally decided to take care of them. I’ve got a couple more on my “to-do” list but am still searching for them.
My half yard bundle from Fat Quarter Shop arrived yesterday … it’s like Christmas all over again when something quilty is delivered.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
