The geraniums are resting in the basement & it's a pleasure to see green growing in the basement.
I worry about that squirrel as we also have several eagles that live in the area.
The weather here is unsettling, schools are closed again due to the ice. Today it is 2C tomorrow wind chill is -25C, weather is all over the map!
I love the aqua tones in it & the hearts remind me of Valentine Day. So I'm going to machine quilt it on my machine.
I plan on putting it on the back of the kid's deacon bench. I miss Liz & still can't believe she is gone.
I look through the neverending projects that she never completed & the quilt tops left to me that were never quilted, & Liz was a longarm quilter too, never having enough time to finish her quilt tops.
I think of the nightmare I'm leaving for my family to sort out ... or I'll live long enough to get them finished & cleaned out. Either way, like the weather, life cannot be controlled, only enjoyed!
So I made another one as there are four to this pattern that will be made up of the 30's reproduction fabric. This pattern is from a Fon's & Porter magazine from 2005 called Sweet Susan.
I need to have some embroidery work to do & the 30's fabric is so spring/happy/colourful fabric.
I'm enjoying the result with pencil crayon rather than crayons that you have to heat set. The colour is more vibrant & it's easier to control as the tips are smaller to get into corners.
Another thing that I changed out was the order that the colouring was to be done first, then you hoop & embroid. I really recomend embroidering first as it provides a guide line/bumper line, to stay in & colouring is easy!
I'm thinking a wee cushion to put on the vintage rocking chair with some patchwork around it?
Thank you for stopping by on this wintery day for a visit.
For me, it feels good to know that in 55 days, spring will begin or that's the date the calendar says it will! March 20th & Easter is just a couple of weeks from that on April 1st. April Fool's Day has been put on hold this year. Old man winter is my visitor for a while yet, & Mother Nature is keeping him groomed for viewing!
Till then I'm going to try to sew my way through winter!
Have a safe week with this ever-changing weather we are all experiencing!
