Friday's Musings

No finishes this week.  All my sewing attention has been turned to E's Pink Fairy Quilt.

I am actually burning out a bit.  I think I will have to pull out something else to work on today.  I finished all the blue background.
And quilted two of the outer panels.  16 more to go.

E wants bubbles quilted in the pink part to match her curtains...

 I think it would look good, but I've got to figure it out.  I don't want to stop and start a ton, so lot of traveling stitches?  I think I may have to draw it out first.

 Next week is spring break for the kids.  Not sure how much blogging or sewing will get done.  I do need to make E's Easter dress, though.  Its a simple pattern.  Maybe I'll pull that out today.  The above shot is out my back bedroom window.  Down the hill into the woods and the swamp out behind.  Things are slowly warming up around here.  Honestly, the slow melt is probably better than a fast one.  Less flooding and mess that way, hopefully we'll have some good weather next week while the kids are home.  I remembered the other day that I planted close to 200 bulbs last fall, I'm looking forward to seeing them!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Your quilting is coming along! And as far as the circles, I'd use the idea, but just loop them together so you don't have to travel--think of trying to bury all those threads! AAGH!

Okay you are one industrious soul: two-hundred bulbs? I'm completely impressed!
