Easter Weekend

     We've been blessed with temps in the 70s the past few days. It's wonderful to be able to turn the furnace off and open the windows. There's a lovely breeze blowing through Corgi Cottage as I write this blog post
     Even though I've been tempted to sit on my sun porch, relax and enjoy our springtime weather... I put temptation aside and kept busy at the sewing machine this past week. 
      First up is my completed  Jo Morton's - Little Women's Club quilt top, Daffodil Hill,  from  Club#9.
The quilt  measures approximately 22" x 26". I'm thinking of quilting the top in a grid fashion with diagonal quilting lines through the center of the squares. 
      I stitched up the next three blocks of the Civil War Tribute BOM.
Double Aster
   Western Valley  
Barrister's Block
       I received a wonderful box from Deb, Artisticneedle, in the mail this week. It's always a good week when you receive a package from Deb. She finished my Blackbird Designs -Halloween stockings and Milady's Needle - In the Garden box and fob to perfection. Thanks Deb!
     I've also had some time to stitch. I've put a few more stitches into Hannah.

GAST, WDW and Crescent Colours  
      I'm still suffering from 'startitis' and decided I couldn't wait one more moment to start the new Anniversaries of the Heart series from those wonderful gals from Blackbird Designs. AotH is being stitched on a mystery piece of 40 ct. linen with the called for fibers.
      Wishing you all a wonderful Easter weekend. May it be filled with the promise of Spring and new beginnings.
