Signs of Spring

It is a sign of Spring that I don't have much to post on quilting. (Just a pile of string pieced 7" squares) 
It is a sign of Spring that at the end of the day I have more dirt on me than I have threads. 
It has been a wonderful Spring weekend, including a motorcycle ride, beautiful weather, digging weeds... 
Cheers to Spring!!

Bible Precept Quilt

This weekend I finished up a Bible Precept Quilt with 22 phrases stitched into it. I used 4" scraps that I'd been saving from many projects, and joined them together with the fabric from Ikea with the birds and nature print on white, and with yellow little squares and yellow binding. It's a happy quilt!

broken window quilt

Here's what I'm working on. The center is finished and I need to sew the outer area together and on. It is scraps. It reminds me of a broken window. Maybe a dirty window with two Jacks looking out!  :)

Lake Powell Valentines Day

I love Lake Powell. Red Rock and water. It is a reservoir on the Colorado River, is in both Utah and Arizona.  Manificient walls of rock and unique shapes. It is a hot vacation spot in the summer time when the water is bathtub warm. We hadn't been there for over 15 years and thought an off season trip would be nice. It was. Peaceful and quiet solitude.
