Weather Hexies

It's been a busy couple of weeks.  Although I have been keeping track of the temperatures, I didn't make a rosette until yesterday.  ]

So, here is the rosette for week 11.   Marcb 12 to 18.

-0.1C   2.6C   2.2C  6.4C   0.3C   6.4C   10.5C

March 17th was St. Patrick's Day.  I had a small piece of fabric that resembled some shamrocks.  (I think they are actually clover)  But it is close enough for me.

Then there is week 12.   March 19 to 24.

-0.2C   1.5C   6.2C   5.4C   4.9C   2.9C   2.5C

March 20th was the first day of spring, so I used a fabric with tiny flowers on it.  Not that there are many flowers around right now,  But one can only hope.  It's got to warm up soon.

And here is a little insight into the lives and minds of us, creative folks.

A Kaffe Fassett Inspiration

I have spent the last few weeks making a quilt for a friend.  She is having some issues and no one should have to deal with those without a quilt.  Several weeks is a long time.  I know!  I had to deal with many obstacles.  My machine needed help.  It was in the shop more than here at home.  Not once, but twice.  It still isn't working the way I would like it to, but for now it is okay.

I made the quilt using my Kaffe Fassett stash.  I love his fabrics.  They are so inspirational. 

I also used the quilt-as-you-go method.  I have no room to lay out a quilt in my little studio and I
didn't trust my machine to quilt it properly.

But now it is done!  Just need to make a label and then I can move onto other things.

Weather Hexie on Feline Friday

It's been cool the past couple of weeks.  But that is okay.  Our maple syrup production depends on above freezing temps during the day and below freezing temps at night.  And that is what has been happening.  This is week10.  Unfortunately my weather hexie is kind of boring.  It's totally green.

3.8C   2C   3.1C   0.5C   5.3C   3.2C   3.9C

Even though it is cold out, I have lots of colour indoors.

This is one of my orchids

And this is another.  (sorry for the blurry picture)

Last week I looked out into my solarium and saw that my Amaryllis was about to bloom.  It had been sitting dormant since last year.  I love it when plants seem to take care of themselves,

And then there is Felix.  He has not been feeling himself for a while.  But he seems to be doing better lately. 

Meow!  Go away with that camera.  Me wants to sit here in peace and quiet.  

Here my sweet kitty is washing his face.

Meow!  Me needs to look nice!  

Okay Felix.  Is it spring fever you are suffering from?

Meow!  Spring fever nothing.  Me just wants to look nice.
