Warm weather and lots got done

I think I do better with Daylight Savings Time. The warmer weather today combined with the time changed seemed to have energized me today. I got alot of things done!

I worked on a new quilt project that I have had in mind for a year now. It's a wallhanging based on the scripture Ecclesiastes 3:1-8..."to every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven". The background will be the solid colors of the seasons, starting with Spring pastels, moving into brighter Summer, then cooler Fall and ending with Winter. I then plan to applique different women from my family to represent the different seasons of the scripture. I did some research, and each woman will be shown in the clothing style when she was about 20 years old. I think I will do plain faces. The women will be connected by a gold ribbon running thru the quilt. Sounds great on paper, huh! It will propablly take me another year to do it. I did get as far as the Spring background being appliqued on today.

No baby, yet! Poor mommy-to-be!

For Family Home Evening, we had our annual Spring poop scoop of the backyard. We have two large dogs and try to keep up on the scooping, but with the snow (especially heavy this year) we are still finding some treasures in melting snow/ice piles. Yucky job, but somebodies gotta do it.

Monthly quilt meeting is tomorrow...yeah! I get the second row of the vintage quilt, plus get to see lots of show n' tell. We are having a sew-in...flannel quilt tops for QOV.
