The last two days have been snow then came the wind & oh my, is it really April here?!
I'm not in southwestern Ontario anymore.
In just two weeks today, I've got family coming for the Easter holiday. I'm hoping for warmer days!
I embroidered & appliqued the backdrop from Rhonda of Farmhouse patterns a few years back.
It was perfect for these ceramic birds & what was more perfect was visiting Jocelyn & her giving me this shadow box to do something with! She had no idea that I was on the quest for finding the shadow box for the quilt square & the pie birds!! Funny how some things are just meant to be. Thank you again, Jocelyn, for making my idea a reality!
We knew that it would be a large Easter gathering & these placemats would be perfect.
I had a piece of quilted fabric from a drapery store in London's Hyde Park several years back & it would compliment the placemats with the colour & textured design.
I liked the crochet cotton colour as it is the hare's colour & the two will coordinate beautifully.
I'll take pics of the table & post them after Easter.
This hook also does a beautiful job on baby receiving blankets too. I'm going to try it on clothing for a decorative hem finish.
Cecile had a weaving loom & sold it last year. She gave me bags of scrap fabrics & I used the red/white/blue on the Mustang rug last year, a white/grey runner under my dough bowl, & last week I made a fabric handled basket with a lid. The colours looked summery to me & those colours put you in a good frame of mind when you only have cold & snow to deal with. Thank you, Cecile!
I've been snowed in for three days now & will probably get plowed out sometime today.
I'm going to work on some spring clothing to go with my BOG boots when we get the April showers I'll be ready in my new khaki/navy/green outfits.
Snow = Sew that's how I'm going to get through this.
And knowing "This too will pass".
Have a great weekend where you are!
