Buds of Spring





I can see from my garden that the buds of spring are upon us. Hopefully that means that the warmer days are just around the corner as well. I yearn for the rays of spring sunshine which give our whole home a new look and feel as the sun streams through. It also gives me lots more motivation to get things down after a day at work.

Although last night I sewed all night after dinner and have almost completed a "secret project" above. Just a few finishing touches tonight and it will be ready for machine quilting.

For those of you that have signed up for the advent swap please be sure to check your e-mails. Jo and I have sent out partner e-mails last week and we are still waiting to hear from some of you. If you have not e-mailed us within the next week we will have to re-assign partners.

I have also joined Jenny's August Sewing Machine Cover Challenge. I am still mulling over ideas and will begin this project in the next day or so.

Until next time,

HUGS,

And here, in Mid-Atlantic USA, the dogwood trees are showing the first blush of reddened edges, the first sign of autumn, though we still have another month or so of summer.
