Spring Weekend

Finally the sun is OUT! We had warm, beautiful weather. I worked on quilting for hours this weekend. Started my pink stripe Elizabethan corset. It is looking pretty good. Also I’ve been working on a crochet pillow cover. The patio chairs need pillows. All my projects seem to be going really slow. Hopefully once school is out for summer, things will get hopping. Had a gorgeous little bird visitor. Only managed one picture before the cat got out onto the patio and scared him away.


Made some Monkey Tail Bread. I love this bread. It is a favorite I go back to over and over. It has bananas, peanuts and chocolate. It is definately more of a desert than a everyday bread.

Quilts and Quick Breads

This has been a week for Qs. I’ve been working on quilts and quick breads.

The first thing I’ve been working on is ripping apart lots of quilt blocks. I got a 1/4″ seam foot just a couple weeks ago. So I want to go back and fix the seams

I’ve been working on some hand quilting. This is my first bed sized quilt. It’s a one patch scrap quilt. I am really excited to get it done. I have a oval standing hoop that I am working in. It is going faster than I thought.

The other day I had a craving to make quick breads. Yesterday I got three loaves done. I have one more loaf to make, but with the end of semester schedule it might be the weekend before I get around to it. The two large loaves at the ends are pumpkin bread, there is also zuchini and apple bread. The last one I want to make is Monkey Tail bread.

In the home town of my Mom, Spring showed up a couple weeks ago. These flowers are from her garden. Where I live there is still snow coming down every once in awhile. Everyone out here is anxious for Spring.Little yellow daffodil all by himself.

Yesterday on my patio I noticed a little bird. He is a fledgling Pine Siskin. Just a month ago I had about 30 eating on my patio everyday.

I hope Spring shows up soon.
