Red and White Blocks and a Win

A few more red and white blocks have been added to my design wall.  I haven’t decided how many I will want for the top, but I doubt I am half way through yet.

Last Tuesday I was able to join my sewing pals for a full day.  A friend let me go through some of her remnants and I captured these reds and neutrals for my hexagon quilt.  Unfortunately, the cuts are not quite large enough to incorporate in the quilt shown above.

Also waiting for me at our gathering spot was a basket I won at a neighboring guild’s quilt show.  It was loaded with all kinds of goodies including a kitted Be Attitudes quilt.  I’m not sure if I want to incorporate these new blocks in my WIP or perhaps gift it away.  I need to pull out the one I have started and see if the finishing kit might work.

I know many of my readers continue to struggle with absolutely horrific winter weather while we experience a much warmer than normal first week of February.  I hope it doesn’t offend anyone that I’ve included two pictures from my walk today.

February 4, 2019 Rose

Blue Heron looking for a meal.
The rose (the only one on a mostly dormant bush) was a real surprise, but the heron is a year-round regular in our area.

I can't even imagine seeing a rose blooming in early February!

Great haul from the basket! the rose is a beauty and such a welcome sight at this time of year.

I love seeing your rose and we had daffodils open for 2 days now at least! spring is coming even though it won't be every day warm it will be more every week. I have leaves on one of the rose bushes so the buds won't be real far behind.
