Nothing like a new pillow that says spring!
I love my picture shelf!  So many ways to display some
of my favorite things.
Spring...I had hoped that adding spring to my house
might translate to adding spring to the outside!
Spring is coming,  we are not buried in snow.
There are flowers braving the cold.
And robins singing their songs.
Until next time~Terri

Quilt Retreat

Disappearing 4 patch

Maple leaf pattern

Coming home from quilt retreat always makes me a bit sad.  I am usually not quite ready to leave.  Once home I long for the company of my friends, long days of sitting at the machine, good food, lots of laughing and joking.  This time I even slept well, tried not to stay as late or be the first one at the machine in the morning.  It was a bit more relaxing.  I came home with projects all started and only one complete.  For the first time I did a lot of picking out.  I only had limited fabric, and didn't like what I chose...twice.  Thankfully I only had 6 blocks to pick out. Now I am on the right track.  And who is this quilt for...the downstairs spare bed, bother!  The pictures featured are some of the things that I worked on and need to complete and not even remotely in my color range!  I do like the fall leaves.  Quilt retreat is a good way to feel better about winter being nearly over, (I hope).  But also to be totally inspired, not only with projects, but with the wonderful blessing of a room full of truly beautiful people, inside and out.  Until next time~ Terri
