A Trip and Some Quilting

This is what I've been sewing on the past few days. I have the first three rows of my Dear Jane quilt put together. Now that I've started it I'm anxious to get it all put together. I've been working on these blocks for several years. This is supposed to be a trip around the world setting. Right now I don't see it, but I'll post another photo after I finish a few more rows.

This is the mystery quilt that one of our local quilt shops did last year. They pass out a clue every month starting in January and ending in June. I just put the border on last week. I need to add another border or maybe two in order for it to fit on the twin bed in the guest room.

We took a trip to Huntsville, AL, this past weekend to visit our daughter. We took a walk around the lake, and I saw these flowers in bloom in a little clump all by themselves. It was 60 degrees when we got there on Friday, and it snowed Sunday morning before we left.

There are always pansies in bloom in Huntsville even when it is winter here in the midwest. You probably think I'm easily amused, but those of you that live in the midwest know that we have lots and lots of days that are cloudy and the grass and trees are brown.

More in a few days. Thanks for reading. Have a nice day.
