A Finishing Month

A Finishing Month

I recently read that the Northwest has two false springs before the real one kicks in.  This is true.  And spring itself is a bit iffy.  One day can include sun, warmth, clouds, a chilly rain, maybe some wind and hail, and then sun again.  This same post also mentioned summer, also known here as road construction.  But that’s a whole other story.  I just ran out and took some pictures of the sunshine.  Then I sat out in the sun for a few minutes.  Real Oregonians do not waste sunshine.

That poor rosemary had a tough winter.  It’s hardy, though and has already worked its charm on a chicken recipe.  This is the first day that any tulips have opened up and I’m loving the look.

I finished and washed “Sewist’s Delight.”  It needs blocking, but I’m not convinced it’ll help a great deal.  I like the colors and design.  But the quilting experiment was definitely a bust.  And so, another lesson is learned.

   

 

I’m hoping to get back in my old sewing space in April.  The space I’m using is fine, but it just feels off.  I’m seriously thinking of making April a finishing month.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I’m a great starter so taking some time to finish would do two things: one, some UFOs will be dealt with and two, new ideas will come really fast.  It’s a bit like the dogs who want to be somewhere they’re not.  In truth, there will still be lots of UFOs on May 1, just fewer.

Our next newsletter will be out in a couple of weeks.  It’s easy to sign up at the top right of this page.

When the sun comes out, run out and enjoy it.  Sniff some hyacinths – that aroma is the very essence of spring.  Then, work on a springy quilt.  Check our shopping page for ideas.

Quilt for Fun!
