Something's wrong here. Yesterday was the day we turned our clocks ahead, and this is what we saw when we woke up. Then last night, there was hail and lightning!
Is this really March?
We slipped and slid on the way to church this morning, but by the time we finished singing for both services, everything was beginning to melt. But after a nice walk this afternoon, we'd barely stepped inside when it began to hail like crazy again. At this rate I'll never get the roses pruned!
At least it's not SNOW!
However, this kind of weather makes for good stitching time. I started a couple of new projects, finished a couple more, and finally got around to doing this block. One of my quilting friends brought a number of partially finished blocks done by hand by her deceased sister. Our group has decided to finish the blocks and use them for a Ronald McDonald quilt in her honor. (A few years ago our group did a similar quilt for a member's daughter, and we all learned an easy way of preparing the "plates" for appliquing. We stitch the plate to a piece of very light-weight stabilizer right sides together, remove most of the stabilizer, turn it right side out and stitch onto the background. This technique works well on other shapes also.) Next comes the scottie block! Stay tuned.
