Some progress

My time seems to go too fast at the moment. The week is gone and I wonder if I managed to get anything done. Last week I sent my red and white granny squares to the Rainbow.



I have also been working on my nine-patch quilt for Anne Marie's challenge. It is going to be a big one. I have used the sleeves of 16 plaid shirts and almost every part of three denim shirts. I still need to work on the sashings and make the backing from stash.


Naturally I have been watching the birds too. I love this acrobat titmouse:



We have had some sunny days already, and the day is about 2 hours longer than at winter equinox in December. We expect some 30 cm or 12" snow for next weekend. I think we already have enough for one winter!



I better go back to the sewing machine and start to work again. Have a nice and productive week!

  1. You've made great progress on you 9-patches. They look so cozy. The bird makes me smile. I wonder how they can be upside down. It's been an ugly winter for many people. Stay warm.

  3. My how busy you've been, Ulla! The 9-patch is looking really great! It's hard to imagine that you will be getting 12" of snow when the sky is so clear! Maybe Mr. Titmouse is trying to tell you things will be topsy turvy soon!
    Cheers!
