The past week you could just feel spring sneaking into the area. Just in time for Mothering Sunday some of the spring flowers like daffodils and crocus are peeking up and making the village entrance look quite festive. I wish I could post some photos however the camera has been acting up and will not be back until tomorrow.
The Flog It show was fine. I looked a bit heavier and a bit older than I expected but it has been 10 years since I saw myself on TV...I did have a very heavy American accent (that I expected!) but I did make sense so in the end I was happy. The quilt that was auctioned is the one on the right hand side.
I got a call from a woman asking me if I could show my quilts to her quilt group (more than 50 vintage/antique quilts.) I haven't done that for awhile so I am looking forward to it. Gives me a good chance to take the quilts out and refold them.
As I was cleaning up photo files last week I came across this pine tree quilt from West Virginia. It is made of all plaid and stripped shirting fabric! Reminds me of a "Bonnie" quilt. (except that the blocks are 15 inches across!)
Today I worked with a friends daughter making placemats and a pillow. Pretty good for just few hours!
I made a totally disgraceful dessert. Triple Chocolate Bread Pudding. It is sinful! It is made with chocolate milk, dark dutch chocolate powder, and semi-sweet chopped chocolate. Yikes. It is wonderful. I am on a diet and only allow myself one dessert a week so I really have to make it count!
