Spring is here

I am sitting out on the screen porch as I write this enjoying the spring - finally! (It's a tadbit cool, but I won't admit it.) The wind chimes are chiming, the birds are cheeping and Big T is installing some outdoor landscape lighting. It doesn't get any better than this.

I posted two more quilts on Hummingbird Treasures this morning. My Hummingbird table runner and the contemporary quilt art - A Study in Purple. I am quite pleased with both of them. I finished the wall hanging in a free shape format instead of the traditional squared form. We'll see what kind of response they get on Etsy.

Yesterday I opened Konda's blog for the jelly roll winner for block 2 and there was my block. I'm afraid my shout was not very lady-like. I won a gift certificate from Debby Maddie, the designer of block 2. Thank you Konda.

My Christmas Cactus is putting out one more bloom. I will have a Christmas flower by Easter Sunday. It must be getting just the right amount of sunshine through the window.

Hugs to all! (I'm off to find a long sleeve shirt for my adventure on the back porch.)



  1. Very rich and eye catching table runner.

  2. I like the Study in Purple. I didn't know you were making that!

  3. LOVE the green table runner!!
    Trying to convince my hubby that we need a fireplace on the patio and some lighting on the deck. Not working so far :) But will keep trying!
    Have a wonderful Easter Weekend!!

  4. You have a screened porch? I am so jealous!

  5. I'm loving both of your finished projects. I really like the art quilt! It's just so different and unexpected, which I think is plain AWESOME. Oh and on your win...WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. See, I'm not afraid to yell! Your block was just fabulous and I'm glad that someone recognized that. So whatcha gonna buy????

  6. Congrats on the win!!! I'm in awe of A Study in Purple! It's not just the vibrant colors but the unconventional shape as well. You're such an inspiration and I'm so glad I found your blog!

  7. Marie, you table runner fabrics are gorgeous! You do awesome work.

    Yup! Spring bit me ... I am sooo into the yard work enjoying every moment out in the sun.

    Happy Easter!
