Where are you Spring?

I have been waiting for Spring, but look what blew in last week. I think it does look beautiful, but the bad thing is we tend to loose power. Now the first day it isn't too bad sitting around reading a book by the fire, cooking on the camp stove, just being together. However by the third day things get old because everything takes longer. Heating the water for coffee, heating the water to bathe or wash dishes. My arm got tired holding the flashlight to read my book.

So I say again, where is spring?

On to other things, let me show you what came in my mail box. It is my quilt from when I joined a Round Robin from The Quilt & Needle

I chose to do a New York Beauty for the center using some reproduction fabrics I had been saving. I think the ladies did such a beautiful job on each of the borders. I'm thinking I might add another border to make it a little bigger. Get your thinking cap on Mary on how to quilt this. You always do such beautiful quilting.
Well my friends, have a lovely week, I'm off to my sewing room.

  4. Rebecca, The snow looks wonderful where you are. It looked nice here also but I'm tired of it and waiting for spring... spring flowers, warm breezes...feels like it's taking forever this year!
    Love, love, love your quilt. The border looks nice on it. Can't wait to see it quilted.
