I'm calling this month's mini Apples and Pears . . .
. . . for the cute fabric that was in Carol's scrap box. There were just enough pieces to cut 18 3-inch squares.
I had pink, green, yellow, and red solids in my 'vintage' stash along with the pink and white check and combined them all for a spring-like mini :)
Don't forget to check Wendy's blog and follow the links to see more minis!
I sewed my album blocks together and started working on a border. The fabric I thought was going to work looked so washed out and blah that I'm changing direction.
As you can see I'm still into Carol's scraps and started making 10" blocks. What fun!
Last week Rachel and I attended (via Zoom) "The Work of Women's Hands: Maryland Chintz Quilts" presented by Elizabeth Lay, Curator, Collections Manager at Montgomery History. This free program is still available here if you care to watch. There are some wonderful detail potographs like the one above of Prussian Blue.
Every day the Ausable River changes and every morning I look out to see what's new. Last week it opened up as ice floes drifted by.
But the temps have plummeted and today this is what it looks like--completely frozen again! Waiting for tomorrow when it's supposed to be 60 degrees and all this will disappear :)
It's maple syrup time around here and our neighbor has buckets lining the driveway :)
That's all for now!
