    Is anyone working on yours yet, or are you finishing up other projects first?

    Well, good luck with that! Every time I go downstairs to the sewing studio thinking I will get started, something interrupts me. Mine is in my brain rattling around, but is having difficulty escaping.

    Its official I am using the first set of fabric that I posted in my selections. The easter ones with the eggs and all the other good fabrics that went with it. It is alot easier for me than the last one where only two went together and the middle purples are not calling to me. must be the time of year. Its so cold and thinking of spring.. flowers we have lots of daffodils in the mountains around here. They love the cold winter weather I think. usually they come up between snow showers and all get smooshed but they sure are pretty. There is even a place nearby that is callled Daffodil Hill. Famous for their display of daffodils zillions that are all over the property and people come from all over to check it out. its sooo pretty. awful curvy road to get there however. yikes.Name:  daffodil-hill-amador-county.jpg

    Also instead of doing an applique I am going to go for a four quilt block group, two on top two underneath I think. I am not great at applique and well do what your good at especially since I am sharing it with someone else I think you will like it. Quiltermomma have you decided what your switching your wall hanging out to?

    Around here in the spring and summer u see fields of sunflowers, oh man they are so pretty,
    the hills that have whatever kind of flower , is also beautiful, God has sprinkled color everywhere, and did a great job of it,

    That is such a pretty, and peaceful looking picture. I love flowers, and all the nature given to us. I will be doing quilt blocks in my wall hanging. Pink will be one of the colors.

    Yesterday Nancia came over and we did some yakking and sewing together. I started working on my wall hanging. I will only divulge that the embroidery machine is a crucial part of my design. That is mostly because I am flying by the seat of my pants here, no definite design as of yet. I have to do it as I see what I like. I am going to only use stash fabric, and that is making it difficult so far.

    How cute Lynnie! I have 6 blocks embroidered, now to decide how I want to put them together, and to find the time to sit down and do it. Hope to get back to it this weekend.

    Ok you guys are fast zoom zoom zoom fast. Good for you! I have fabric. and an idea. now just had another idea thinking of using my tulip fabric making two tulip blocks and then using that same fabric in a four patch pinwheel on top left and bottom right. using two fabrics to sash.. it is not a quiet tulip fabric.. will be spring not easter.OR I go for the easter fabrics and make two blocks left right applique bunny basket thingy and two four patch pinwheel with easter fabrics.. hum.. they both say make me make me what sounds better? and who knows who will get it. see.. mysteries abound in this swap.

    Lynnie love the sneak peak. And hey what was just embroidered? um.. bunnies? pansies? ladies with crinoline? redwork? colorwork? ok ok tell us more!!!! and Rhonda what does your little project look like even if its in your head only? oh grand leader give us a clue!!

    Mine is not necessarily springy, definitely not Eastery, more gardeny. I can't tell you what it is going to look like because I have no idea. It will be a surprise even to me.
