Sunday report

I did not do any sewing during the week, this week.  I was very busy at work and tired all week.  But on Saturday I decided I had to do something.  So I cut some more pieces for En Provence and then I put together one block, because I was so itchy to see what it is going to look like.


My verdict - this is going to be an interesting looking quilt.  Most of my yellows are darker than these ones.  And gee, I didn't realize how purple it is going to be.  But I think once the neutral borders go on that will be toned down a lot.

No hexies to show this week.  I didn't work on them at all :(

Spring is definitely coming, even though it was grey and windy today.  I saw my first crocuses earlier this week.  These are the very first spring flowers that we get here.


The ice is melting off the lake and the creeks and rivers are opening up.



There are birds everywhere, calling and hooting.


Today we watched about six eagles.  One had caught a fish and the others chased it around and around, trying to snatch it from him.


I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Janet

  2. Beautiful block, and spring flowers to match.Not too much purple, the other fabrics, specially the green and red/pink go so well with it all. Spring has begun, with melting ice.

  3. I adore that 2 inch block quilt...yes you must get it done and enjoy its beauty! En provence is interesting too. I have my first daffodils open but it is still wet, rainy and gloomy most days. Maybe we are skipping spring this year...lol

    I hope you didn't get too shook up this morning with that earthquake!
