Today is the last Wednesday of the month. I decided to join Barb for this month's quilt-in, or whatever she calls it. Barb loves Lynette Jensen's quilts (and so do I) so she has proclaimed the last Wednesday of each month a to be 'Thimbleberries Day'. I have wanted to join in for a long time, but I had
misplaced lost my Thimbleberries quilt. Yesterday, while looking for another quilt, I found it!!! Gosh, I love it when that happens! I started this quilt many years ago, for my DD. She is a teacher and I thought the apples on this quilt were perfect! Here is a small section of the quilt top. I still have some more of those apple triangles to applique. And a few more triangles to cut for the corners. This used up a lot of scraps from my stash. It is from Lynette's book, "The Thimbleberries Book of Quilts". I am going to work on this whenever I have a few moments. I would like to have all the applique work done by next month. Then I can add some borders and quilt it.
I also worked on my hexies today, but it was only to prepare my pieces. I have started a new section of the Wannabe Quilt and there is really not much to show right now. Plus, I put a couple of rows onto the TAW quilt. Then in the afternoon I went outside to get some vitamin D. We have had so much winter and today the sun was shining and the temperature was above freezing. It was so nice outside that I stayed out and cleaned up some of last year's growth in my raised beds. It was nice to work in the garden. I even took my coat off!
I passed by Mimi as I went outside. She was sleeping peacefully, but I heard her mumble, "Get me some catnip if you can find it".
Sorry Mimi. Everything was still frozen yesterday. It will take a few weeks before the catnip is up and ready for harvest. Do you want to come out and help me with the cleanup?
Hmmm. That's what I thought.
