Where has the month gone?

I just can't believe this month is over. I have accomplished nothing on the quilting front. My February ufo is still unfinished. My March ufo was not even touched. In truth, I did take it out to look at it. But my daughter wants to give it as a gift and we decided that I needed to make it longer. I got a bit bogged down with how I wanted to do that. :( I think I have a plan of action now.
I'm still working on the bow tie top. I am adding the borders. We have had some gorgeous weather and I have not wanted to sit in my basement and sew. So it is slow going. And about to get slower. My sewing room is going to get a new floor and a coat of paint over the next couple weeks. So I will be pulling everything out of the room this weekend. I guess I had better get those borders on now.

on my wall today...

I have managed to do a little sewing this past week. I have my blocks stitched together on my bow tie quilt. I hope to add the borders this week. I wish I had a better picture , but somehow this is the only shot I took.

Today I went to a workshop with Bonnie Hunter. Our local quilt guild brought Bonnie in to speak tomorrow night. In the workshop, we worked on her Cathedral Stars quilt. I was a last minute add-in to the class and was happy to snag a spot. These are a couple of the blocks I made. This one will need to go into the ufo pile for a while so I can finish a few other projects.

Nothing new to report

It's Monday, and I usually share what I have on my design wall. But I haven't done any sewing this past week. The sun has been shining, and I have been trying to soak as much sunshine in as I possibly can. It's been a grey winter here and I am thrilled to see the sun.

And I probably won't sew much this week either. My son and his family are in town for the week, so I plan to enjoy their visit. Especially my granddaughter. She brings joy wherever she goes.

Up on the wall

Today on my wall are more of the blocks from last week. I am currently playing around with layout possibilities for this quilt. This is my current option.
