Before And After

The New England weather this year seems even more changeable than usual! We've gone from warming spring rains,

To freezing rains!

Then we had blustery winds.

Then a quick two inches of wet snow,

That was gone by the same afternoon.

Miss Tanner,  the outdoors-only kitty, was not amused by all of Mother Nature's jokes.

On a quilty note, I photographed some lovely Small Quilts that are shop samples for the upcoming classes at The Golden Gese Quilt Shop on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

(are you there, Janet?)

I love the look of small pieces, don't you?

And the colors of these little quilts are jewel tones but in traditional fabrics.

Each one is a small classic. You may call the store and I think that you can arrange to buy a kit from them. Link.

In the meantime, Sue and I knocked out a few more of the pretty scrappy strings blocks over in Alton, New Hampshire at the Senior Center.

They came out very nicely and we're almost up to the halfway point of making 48 blocks for the raffle quilt to benefit the Center.

Of course, you can see in the above photo, that there was plenty of chocolate consumed from that half-empty dispenser, LOL!

Miss Emma Lynne, my lady lab, was all tuckered out from racing around in the snow. Sleep well, Miss Emma!

This post is now linked to Love Laugh Quilt's Monday Making Linky Party!
Also adding a link to Em's Scrapbag, too, Link!

Happy quilting!

Angie has been telling me about your fickle weather. No fun.
Oh, love those little quilts. They look like one of Kim Diehl's Whatnot Club offerings, to me.
Your raffle blocks are coming along great.
Did you catch Grace's recent comment to you about chocolate in her latest post? : )

Crazy fluctuations in temps! Come on Mother Nature give it up for Spring. Yes, I love the look of miniatures. Can't seem to make enough of these small beauties

Spring is a fickle girl.
Love the little quilts, especially the nine patch. Thanks for linking up.

I like little pieces too. And strings used any which way.

Weird weather in the midwest too. Friday we had blizzard conditions for about 1/2 hour and today it is in the 50s and blustery and this weekend the 70s. My forsythia and species tulips are holding up despite it all. As long as you have chocolate and can get out to sew with friends looks like you hold up despite it all too.

Weird weather here too. The cherry tree in the backyard bloomed several times so by the time spring really came it didn't have as many blooms to show off with. I looked at my Japanese maple and couldn't figure out what was hanging limp on the branches -- it was the leaves. They had been progressing nicely until this week when we had 29 degrees. Oh good grief! Maybe they will perk up again as the weather warms up.

Yes, one wonders if we will ever see spring. Lovely quilts though! And, I want Miss Emma Lynne's job! She looks so comfortable after her exercise!
