Stay-home Day

January 31, 2015


Stay-home days are my favorite. The quilt back is pieced and everything is packed up to go home with my friend who will machine quilt it for me. It is the first quilt I have sent out for quilting and I am looking forward to seeing how she is inspired to stitch it.

Being nearly done with one quilt means, of course, I must start planning the next one.


A coworker’s mother made sweet lace doilies. When I saw them, I knew I wanted them to be flower blossoms on a green, yellow, and blue spring quilt.


First Draft Sketch

I’ve been gathering fabric for some time.



A few sketches later and I think I have a plan.

It is chilly here today. A good day for thinking about springtime and sunshine and flowers.  To help keep warm until those things arrive, I made cheesy potatoes. So delicious.


Now to pull myself away from all of this fabric and work on the Valentine knitting for the larger smallish bears. Fourteen days left, no stitches yet!
