And it feels great!
My husband and I went for a walk this afternoon around our neighbourhood...it was so good to see the snow melting into puddles along the side of the road! This is the first time we have been for a walk in a long time. It is still bright and sunny out!
Don't you just love daylight savings time???
I love how the ice is like a lace cover for the snow.
The purple charity quilt was this week's project to finish. I added a dark purple border first.
And then a medium purple border.
I made the backing out of the same material as the wide border.
I have set aside some green material for the binding. It will be scrappy as I don't think I have enough of one fabric to do the whole thing.
I have some friends who knit but I think the same thing applies to quilters who have extensive textile collections (just change the word yarn to fabric):
Here is my first stash report for 2015: (I did some shopping at Mad About Patchwork recently so that accounts for the fabric in numbers!)
Fabric used since my last stash report: 12.8 yards
Total fabric used this year: 12.8 yards
Fabric added to the stash since my last report: 16.25 yards
Total fabric added this year: 16.25 yards
Net fabric added this year: 3.45 yards
Keep sewing! I will be pin basting a wall hanging tonight so that I can machine sew it this week in my spare moments.
