Thursday Thoughts ...

Spring really is coming to New Hampshire! The snow is melting, the days are longer, the robins are back, the Canada geese are passing through on their way home! I can smell it in the air, feel it in the breeze ... Ahhhh!

I can't wait to get out into the yard and start gardening!

In the meantime, I've been working away on the border for the Angels in My Garden BOM I wrote about a bit ago ... it is nearly half done. I get the directions for the rest next week. I can't wait to have it finished and to start quilting it.

Next, I'll be putting the borders on Aster Blast and begin the applique this weekend.

Then ... I need to introduce to you another UFO that I really want to finish. It's called Maple Leaf Memories. From a class I took one year ago ... I'm still working on the endless flying geese that go around the border. I will take pictures of the center this weekend and share that project with you as well!

I also plan to get to a few other quilt shops in the local area and take you along so you can have a peak ... there are so many great shops around here! It seems like I'm always discovering a new treasure! Look for these trips over the next few weeks. It's a shame that working interferes with my quilting! (Ha!)

Have a very Happy Thursday!

Glad to see that snow leaving I'll bet! Raining here, good for the flowers I hope will come soon. Lots of projects for you...I'll be back to see them.

I just found your blog and I know what you mean about spring finally arriving. I live in CT and it seems like winter is very long this year. I love all of you work that you have posted, very nice and you are very talented! Your Angels in My Garden is beautiful! I can't wait to see the shops that you visit!
