The weather is warming up slowly in Michigan and next week we are going to have a day where the temperatures reach the 50s. The huge piles of snow are beginning to melt, I love the spring weather, everything turning green and the flower bulbs starting to bloom.
I’m trying to get focused on working on blocks for the next book, sometimes that is so hard to do when so many other quilting projects are calling my name.
I have enclosed a picture of the nursery rhyme red work quilt that was made by a friend of mine, Barbara David. I’m glad to hear that so many of you are working on that quilt for your grandchildren.
Speaking of grandchildren, one of my favorite things to do with my grandchildren is to have them over by themselves so they have a special day with their Nana. Last week when my seven year old granddaughter was here we spent the day decorating these paper dolls. They are very sturdy, about 18 inches high and actually, even come with some fabric to make their clothing. You can cut out the fabrics and glue them to the paper and then decorate them with sequence, buttons, glitter. Everything comes in the package. I’m sure when we run out of fabric, I will know where to find more. It was such a fun activity.
Enjoy your weekend, hope you find plenty of time to stitch.
