wow, its done!

Well, it may be March 20th and the beginning of spring but somebody forgot to tell those winter winds  which bring cold and snow.  Apparently winter is NOT done!


The snow is as high as the top stringer on the fence. And that clear cold blue is indeed cold!  The Rooster doesn't think he'll be finishing that fence as early in spring as he wants.  :(



Another thing not done is the renovations.  The floor is being sanded.  And apparently this little guy isn't getting it done either so they are going to get a bigger sander. 


There is a spot that needs patching and finding some appropriate old fir floor boards has been a challenge.


I have a new gal who joins us for Creativity 101 so we will be getting into even bigger messes in The Coop and Saucer Playroom!


The butterfly books will take a while before they are done but it is looking like a fun project.

But I do have a long awaited finished goal. The wedding quilt top is DONE! woo hoo!


The top was the goal for this quarter of the finish-a-long.  Next quarter will be the quilting.

My own bed is not queen size but this is as big as I go!


I was just one little patch short so I decided to just make that last corner 'flower' in a different yellow.  :)


So glad this wall has been hurdled!


Now to get my machine quilting skills back up to a good flow!  Next...

And it seems the whole of Canada is ready to be done with winter and I think if we check out The Needle and Thread Network we will find this to be so.  All those in favour of Spring, raise their cursor!  :)

That quilt is so beautiful, I am looking forward to seeing it quilted too. And it looks so nice on the bed too. You house is going to be amazing when it is all done, I love newly done floors.

Oh Elle Congratulations on completing this gorgeous quilt top. A total labor of love!!! Double the fun and double the pleasure of creating is a good thing. The butterflies look beautiful. We did not get snow...just rain and I am glad.
Sending you sunshine smiles...

That must feel so good to have the top completed! Way to go! And my cursor is raised so high, it’s floating. The first day of spring in the Atlantic region was blanketed in a huge fresh pile of snow and it looks like some parts out here will be getting more than their share again this weekend.
