Boy, the end of April sure came fast though I must admit I had made the top for this month's mini last month and then had to scramble to finish it on time :)
Where to start? With these scraps from Carol's box, of course, that were all marked on the back with a small Dresden Plate-like pattern.
But they were lacking enough seam allowance to use them the way they were so I cut them all into 1-1/2" squares which I alternated with a neutral print.
I added a small print brown border and used the same for the binding.
I had this bird print that I purchased at the thrift shop a while ago and it was just the right size for the backing :)
And talking about the thrift shop . . .
Look what I bought for $1.00! This cute felt house runner that I put on the table.
It's all hand-stitched / embroidered with a road leading from the bottom to the top.
So very improv, don't you think?
Cute windows and doors!
We took the long road to the top :) Anyway, I just love this piece with its large ric-rac trim!
It was a gray day when we took the Lake Champlain ferry from Essex, NY to Charlotte, VT to have lunch with our friends. The trip only takes 25 minutes.
I'm reading this book by local author Sara J. Henry and it begins with a ferry ride across Lake Champlain :)
Finally! The first wildflower sighting of spring :) A large patch of Colts Foot was right down the road. I even missed it the first time I walked by!
Still waiting for warm, sunny days!
