I was so tired when I posted the other night that I completely forgot what I wanted to post about. I am getting better a little bit more every day, but I tend to push myself too hard and then I get dizzy and very tired. But you may notice I am spending more time on the computer and I have driven into town twice. I worked today and won’t go back again until next Tuesday. I’ll be at retreat Thursday through Sunday!! Yay!! I bought a foam mattress and will take a pillow and blanket so I can go in the back room and lie down whenever I feel overwhelmed. We are staying at a hotel that is about 8 minutes walk away but I don’t want to spend time when I need a break going over there.
We have had this “new to our yard” bird hanging around for about a week, but he has been very elusive. DH managed to get a great photo of him today. He is a Varied Thrush. So pretty!
And here is my finish for March – a table runner that I made for DD # 2 for Easter. Of course it didn’t reach her in time for Easter but she can use it all spring if she wants.
I used a pattern that I won from Janet at Threaded Moose. A lovely paper pieced star.
And fabric that I received from Kate Spain. I blogged about that here – I won two little 2 1/2 inch charm packs and received a huge parcel of her fabric ends as well. I used a solid purple in the border and a navy that matched the navy in the flowers for the binding. Here is the back.
I like it as well as the front. I love Kate Spain’s fabrics. Here it is on my table at Easter, with the plate of Ukrainian eggs my guests made.
I quilted in the ditch around the stars and a cross through the centre of them. And the scribble around the outside border. All in all I was very pleased. And my daughter likes it too.
