Well it doesn't feel much like spring this weekend. Bits of snow fall, then sun, then black rain clouds...and all of those changes in less than an hour! The photo on the left shows the edge of one of those clouds coming into the next village of Overbury.
Holidays are tough to be away from home. On Good Friday my family usually goes into the North End of Boston and shops at the "farmers" market and the Italian Bakeries. In ends with a large pizza (no meat) at one of the Italian restaurants. I have to admit I missed that a bit. This year I helped out with a village tearoom to raise money for a new dishwasher for the village hall. There is a long history of folks walking up Breedon Hill on Easter weekend. Participating did make me a bit less homesick.
I am trying very hard to organize my fabric and sewing stuff which means I am not getting as much sewing done. Don't you hate when that happens? I have a quilt for my Fairford group that needs to be quilted but I just can't get myself going on it. Uggghh...
I cruised through my photo files to find springy quilts without much luck. So here is one of my antique log cabin quilts. The center is a red wool and the entire block is just over 4-1/2 inches.
