This is another busy week with not a lot of sewing going on. Last night I had the pleasure of speaking on Zoom to the Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild with my Well Loved Quilt Repair program, booked by fellow blogger Emily from Darling Dogwood. Such fun, and they had great questions! In the sewing room, I finished up the quilt repair and it is ready to be picked up, but I didn’t do any more pictures. Yesterday, I had lunch with my longarm friend, Chryste, and picked up this quilt for Safelight. She was helping with the quilting for project.
Everything on this quit was donated. Thank you to Chris L for the top and the backing. Batting was supplied by the guild. Chryste donated the quilting, and did the binding from leftover backing, thanks so much! She knows how little time I have right now as I deal with some personal issues. I need to turn it in to the committee at the meeting next week, and now that will be easy. What a great friend!
In the garden, I don’t have a single crocus this year. My iris are coming up, though. In the kitchen, the orchid flower spike is getting longer, so maybe will have some blooms later. It was nice to see my first daffodil open up this week, with more buds promising more blooms to come.
I didn’t have a lot of time for the bird count, but did manage to do a little each day. This downy woodpecker was working on the suet cake. My Sweet Babboo got a few for me as I didn’t have the ingredients to make my own. I wanted a cake to be in the feeder for the bird count.
A Carolina Chickadee was happy with the full feeder of sunflower seeds.
I need to get some projects together to take on retreat. That is coming up soon, and I am really looking forward to a couple of days away with friends to sew and laugh. We are all taking rapid tests the morning of the check in, and only those negative will come. We can then relax and enjoy our time. The ladies in charge of food are planning some fabulous buffet ideas so we can graze as we want. I hope a taco night is on the agenda, with margaritas of course.
So, a short post today, just to check in. We’ll have some Mardi Gras fun on Sunday. What are you working on this week?
