MY QUILT INSPECTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought I would change my header and put the picture of my cat Bonnie in my quilting frame. If my portable hoop is down she always gets in it and watches me while I quilt. I have named her my official quilt inspecter because this is her favorite place to nap. I usually leave the hoop next to my machine and she is usually there while I am sewing. Since this is a quilting, sewing and embroidery blog I thought it would be a good picture to have in the header.

Not much going on in the panhandle of TX except lots of wind and weather that goes from cold to warma and back and forth. The trees are all budding and it looks like spring is here which makes me very happy because it is my favorite season along with fal

I am busy working on finishing up a stitchery for one of my online swaps, sewing up another purse, knitting a shrug and a few birds for stuffing. I have a sweater I finished for my granddaughter to sew togather and I can include it in with the projects to finish. Take care and hope everyone sees lots of flowers this next week.

I have just completed another finish for March. I am taking part in a row robin quilting challange with one of my online quilting groups and this is the 2nd row and second persons row robin I have worked on. She wanted everything done in coffee colors and is making it for her husband. Since he likes his coffee with cream there couldnt be any dark browns in it. I thought it turned out very well and all three blocks compliment each other beautifully.

I am busy at work on another purse and also finishing up a stitchery project I am working on as a swap for another group. I am involved with several groups on the internet and always seem to have a swap or challange going on.

Friday we had a nice little snowfall and it was cold on saturday but by sunday we were back to spring weather again and today it was 78. No wonder people around here keep getting sick but I do love spring. I got my picture for the header on one of the spring days last week and even with the snowfall and cold weather of this last weekend the trees keep bursting into blooms. It won't be long before I am planting my garden.

Take care and on to my sewing and cooking.

First finish for March!!!!!!!!!

I finished my first of many for the month of March. I have done #1 of Gail Pan's. Christmas block of the month. I started another purse, this one for myself, that is like the one I made for my friend Paula.

. This one is done in Lila Tuellars "Woodland bloom" line and is already looking so pretty. We have had such unseasonably warm weather here in the panhandle of Texas. It is almost like spring has already sprung. I am not counting on it though because we have been known to have snowstorms in April. The weather has me itching to get out and plant though. I am off the next two days and I may get out and clean the garage or work in the flower beds.

Have a great week everyone.
