Dribs And Drabs


March...such a Jekyll and Hyde. The first two days were warm and sunny, albeit windy. Then
Day 3 went right back to being the monster--temps in the 20s and a bitter fierce wind all day. I keep telling myself that this is what makes Spring's arrival all the more sweet.
This afternoon I dropped off the Madeira jelly roll quilt at the longarmer's. Such a joy to be handing it off to someone else. She had some great ideas for the quilting so I am anxious to see how it turns out. I even bought a new teal sheet set to welcome it back home later in the month! Of course, now I'll have to find a new bedskirt and make some new pillows. Ya don't just buy the horse, do you?
I did manage to get caught up on my Farmer's Market blocks. Such fun. These are being offered by the very generous Pat Sloan over on her website, quiltershome.com. I took a look around the sewing room after Madeira left and saw still too many projects crying out for my attention. Well, they'll probably have to wait till I return from Arizona and Mexico. We leave on the 12th and in between now and then, DS#1 and his GF are coming in for a few days. That means nonstop eating and some competitive Scrabble. Plus, hopefully, the GF and I can squeeze in some shopping. After all, I DO need shoes for the trip and maybe a new pair of jeans.....
