It Still Isn't Over!

Environment Canada warns us that our winter is not over yet.  Spring will be delayed.  Like I needed to hear that!  I took a photo of the front of my house yesterday.  I can't believe how much snow we still have and it is already the 5th of March.  


I want to see flowers!  I want my crocuses to bloom in front of my house and the snowdrops to show up in the backyard.  I wonder how long I will have to wait for that.  I need colour!  While surfing some blogs this morning, I came across one that showed some fabric flowers.  Can't remember where I saw them, but I saved the link to the tutorial and made a few of them.  I didn't have the right tools and I wasn't able to make any leaves, but I think they look pretty in a pot of jade.  You can find the tutorial on this blog.  It is on her sidebar.  They are called, Fleur de Marguerite.


Remember I promised you a photo of my hexie demonstration at our guild a couple of weeks ago. Well a kind member sent me this photo.  Those are all of my hexagon projects in the back.


My longarm quilter got the quilt. that I am putting into our quilt show. finished.  Gosh it looks great.
I would post a photo, but I think I will wait until after the show is over.  Now I just have to sew on the binding, make a hanging sleeve and a label.  But in order to do that, I will have to take another trip to the quilt shop to buy some fabric.  Ha!  Poor me.

Glad the quilt is now quilted. Now all you need is a label, hanging sleeve and binding. Cute photo of the fabric flowers. I have seen real flowers but those bloggers live in England.

I have two crocus blooming right now. Hope you get some soon. Enjoy your fabric flowers in the meantime.

We're in the same boat here in Northern Illinois. Every time the snow melts a couple inches we get another 5" snow storm. The snow is above my boot tops in the backyard where the bird feeders are. It's a good thing we can see flowers inside because it will be awhile outside.

You need to come to California where it was 72 degrees today and supposed to be in the low 80s by the weekend. Love, love, love seeing you and your hexies.

It may sound crazy, but our Winter was a warm one and we are having Spring here now. Temperatures of 14oC and more, all trees and plants are blooming already!
I hope your Winter will soon be over! Your flowers look lovely!
