Happy Spring Y’all!

Finally Spring has come to our calendar in North America …

March 20, Wednesday here in the northern hemisphere brought us the welcoming of warmer weather and my arthritis is sooo happy to hear that warm weather will be coming! lol

Actually I don’t have any photos of flowering happening this week but soon we will have lots to share I think… we have green plumes all over the yard… just no colors emerging just yet.  I am just happy to have made it through our colder than normal winter here in the mountains of North Carolina 🙂

I have been making steady progress on the Spiral Log Cabin this week…

 I am sharing this photo and this post with Kathy’s Slow Stitching Linky Party HERE.  Kathy is asking what we watch or listen to as we slow stitch… I loved watching Bluprint and learning as I stitched… I am letting my subscription run out though for now and may reup if I miss that… I also watch Youtube learning videos from other quilters and bag makers and enjoy the Hallmark Channel NOW all on my phone with headphones on 😀

As for progress now… I am halfway across the last row of the quilt as you can see in the photo above.  I will be hoping to finish this and be binding if not completely done for next Sunday’s post 😀

And I redesigned the baby quilt I shared last week…

 I got all the blocks I planned to applique except the name strip of fabric complete and ready to machine applique…

 And this morning I finished all the chain blocks (13 of those) as well!!!

 This week I will snowball the 12 applique blocks and start putting this top together 🙂  I am sharing this project as my focus at Wendy’s Peacock Party HERE!

The quilt will be a mix of machine and hand quilting I am thinking… the batting will be coming to me by way of my bestie who bought it during a sale at JoAnn’s.. I don’t live anywhere near one and soon she will be delivering a quilt for me to hand quilt… and will drop off this batting for all the quilts I have been piecing of late.

No work has happened this week on the EPP Rooster this week so hopefully that will change today and this week.  Molly says hello to you all also!

 My honey is doing stellarly well after his hip replacement… he is still having a bit of post operative pain and finds it difficult to find a comfortable position for any period of time.  But he graduated to a cane and now to nothing at all most of the time and is losing his pre operative limp they said could take months to overcome!!!  So he is doing well.. Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers.

Take time to find something in your life to be in love with y’all and have a great Spring or Autumn if you are down South 😀

    your quilt on the frame is coming to an end rather quickly isn't it and it is looking really good. Your honey's hip seems to have healed really quickly it is barely a month isn't it since the surgery – that is fast recovery I would think. Has your winter actually been colder than normal – or that it has been longer and colder than a transplant from Florida thinks it was to be 🙂 I bet you have flowers poking out here and there that you haven't even noticed yet – when did you move there? has it been a year? I wasn't sure if you have seen all four seasons at your place now since you moved.

    Your quilt is looking so good, he'll out of the frame by next Sunday for sure! I have tulips and daffodils poking up through the soil but they've been frozen so many times that they're no longer green. They should be blooming though sometime in April. Glad Rick is recovering to well, just make sure he doesn't over do though. Have a great week!
