Spring? Really? travel and Quilting (of course)

Well, I hear that quite a bit of our great country is having terrific spring weather.  We have had a few little dustings of snow in the last week or so, and then on Wednesday night much bigger flakes started falling and we woke up to probably 3 or 4 inches of the white stuff on the ground.  The poor daffodils are so unhappy, and branches have broken off the flowering plum and cherry trees.  Usually I love having snow, because we generally don't get much, but this is a month or so too late, seriously!

I am pleased to report though that today is very nice and sunny and the weather folks say we are to have several spring-like days, so I think there is hope for us.

I have been doing some research and planning for our upcoming trip to New York City and then Washington, D.C.  After our time in NYC, we will rent a car and see some sights and end up our trip in D.C.  It's been quite some time since we have been to either place, and we are very excited about going again.  The last time was just about four months before the tragic events of  9/11.  One of our sons and his family will be in NYC with us most of the time, so that will make it extra special.

I was thinking of a quilt this morning that I made the latter part of last year, and I don't think I posted it.  It was a block-of-the-month from Bunny Hill Designs, called Henrietta Whiskers.  It was such fun to make.  I really love their patterns.  I'm working on another one of their patterns called The Night Before Christmas, but not very diligently, so it will be quite a while before much is done with it.


  1. Love the colours on your HW quilt - it all looks wonderful.
    I hope your snow is over - definitely too late in the season.

  2. Love the quilt. I saved the patterns, but don't know when I'll ever get around to making it.

  3. That is adorable Donna. Very nice.

  4. Love how you did this quilt. The fabrics are so cheerful and colorful. Great job.
