Today is Connie’s actual birthday and I’ll bet she won’t forget this one! How things can change in less than 24 hours – I hardly recognize our lives any more. But this is the best medicine to escape reality for a couple hours – spring yard work! I promised myself I would limit how much I do each day so here’s two days’ worth.
This doesn’t look perfect but before I started I couldn’t even see the rocks!
The chickens don’t know our world has changed – they still come up to scratch for tasty morsels under the bird feeders.
I finished binding the red and white snowball quilt.
Jo in Wyoming sent her Dirty Dozen finish and I think it’s sort of hard to see but she has done so much work on this quilt that I’m posting it anyway. She quilted the background first and hand appliqued the mama giraffe reaching down with her tongue to her baby below. What a project! I’d love to see it in person.
Hazel is only interested in the mailman pulling in.
If you might panic when thinking of how restricted your life is, go outside and do yard work – the fresh air will do you good! Quilters can never be bored – start a new quilt! Or finish one that’s been laying around for awhile.
I’ve so enjoyed the comments – and I hope you’ll all feel part of a small group of quilters who have each other to commiserate with. I know I do!
