The weather today was glorious - 71° and sunny. And my daffodils made it through the cold snap and slush. The breeze picked up a lot in the late afternoon and it will not be out of the 50's for the next couple of days...but spring is definitely here. The light yellow daffodils in the center of this picture are called "Tom Thumb", I think -- if my memory doesn't once again fail me. They are tiny little perfectly formed daffies and very showy. My hyacinths are blooming now, too, so hope the lilacs made it as well.
I bought a journal cover kit from Country Threads at the Chicago show and started putting it together today. I have the applique on the top finished and just need to make the sleeve to fit the book into. It's been an enjoyable afternoon working on it and I think it'll make a nice gift; plus, now I'm hooked on making journal covers -- which I have resisted doing for months even though Melanie and Laura kept telling us how fun they were to make!
A beautiful day in the country today.
Working with wool
Spending an hour a day quilting -- I'm back to trying to do this every day -- it really is amazing how much you can accomplish in an hour, plus I tend to lose myself in the pure pleasure of creating something and an afternoon has passed in minutes it seems.
