Easter is over, and we’re back home after spending a couple of days at the cabin. Husband was delayed flying back from a business trip so we did not get up there until Saturday afternoon. We were expecting to see more signs of spring, but not much had happened in two weeks. We had everything from sunshine to snow and a day of all rain all day and then some. Had we been paying more attention to the weather forecast we would have brought our winter gear like wool hats and warm buffs for grandson (he looks fab in my scarf though) and grandpa so they could play boat-release-and-catch in the water
and plastic-golf-club-tennis-ball-hockey on the patio all day.
Oh well, we had a lovely time anyway; enough wood to keep us warm, enough food to keep us fed, and enough indoor activities
to keep us occupied.
Seriously, I would love to make this quilt with circles and all. I have ordered an AccuQuilt circle die to use with daughter’s cutting machine, so I’m not kidding about the circles. I love them and this way I can cut lots of them without adding strain to that darned hand.
The most exercise I got was spring cleaning, cooking
and quite a lot of this.
Tonight I am catching up with everyday life, like starting to plan the material for next weekend’s Quilta Figurer free motion quilting class. It will be fun; I love new classes and I love the class samples. The more fun I have making the samples, the more fun the class will be. Never fails. I have yet to sew a stitch myself though as I need to spare the hand for the class.
Moving on – as Monday night is here, I am happy to announce the winner of the giveaway of my book, Gledesspredere which is (insert drum roll here; think Chevy Chase trying to light the Christmas lights)
lucky No 8, the lovely Lone aka Flowermouse Design, a knitter and polymer artist with the very colourful and inspiring blog Flowermouse Design.
Congratulations to Lone, and to the rest of you, thank you for playing along. I’ll put the details about ordering the book from me in a separate post for those of you that are interested.
