Waiting For Spring!

Driving an older vehicle makes my life full of compromises and lately bad weather has prevented my Husband Wonderful from installing the new exhaust system that my old tank needs.

But I did find some pictures in the camera of The Sunshine Club for quilting. Here is Meb, hand quilting on her latest creation.

Sarah was stitching Barbara Brackman blocks on her featherweight.

These are coming out so nicely!

Such tiny pieces!

Sue was working on some uber-cute owls that were cut using the accuquilt go die cutting machine and hand appliqueing them to her blocks.

These are a nice size to take with you on the go.

As for me, I did some pressing of the Arkansas Crossroads top which needs either two or three more rows to be added to it.

So we're staying busy and still anxiously awaiting the warmer spring weather.

In the meantime, Husband Wonderful filled my kitchen with the scent of roasting chickens all stuffed to perfection. Yummmy!

Happy quilting!

Blogger played a trick on me by making my whole new post disappear into cyberspace! So now I will try to recreate it for you.

The snow is receding and brown winter grass is showing. The best thing was the cheery blossoms of my croci by my front door!

Tuesday at the Sunshine Club at the Alton, New Hampshire Senior Center, Meb and Mary were using the large Go cutter that Meb had brought in from home.

Mary has already finished hand quilting her big quilt for her grand kids and it looks great!

Here is a close up of one of the blocks.

You may click on any picture to enlarge it.

Then on Friday at The Golden Gese Quilt Shop in Concord, New Hampshire, we were all admiring Maureen's hand knit sweater for her grand daughter.

The polka dot buttons are so cute down the front with all those gorgeous cable and fancy stitches.

Maureen called this sweater the coat of many colors and each section was made from the leftover yarn from a different sweater that she has made for this granddaughter.

Maureen also finished stitching the final borders onto her patriotic themed quilt top. Looks great!

Nancy Gesen, the quilt shop's owner, on the left, was letting us ogle her fabulous wool on cotton applique quilt top. Wow, what a stunning quilt!

My favorite block was this dragonfly.

Such tiny pieces and such beautiful stitching! good work, Nancy!!!

Happy quilting!
