I never tire of beauty like this……
These locally grown tulips get more spectacular every year.
After stitching with the FABs this morning, I headed out to the tulip fields–today is the first day of the local Tulip Festival.
It may be 20 degrees out, but we are still within winter’s grasp as there are no tulips in bloom yet. The owner of the fields told me that by next weekend there would be “some” colour and hopefully within two weeks the fields will be in full bloom. However, he added that it might be longer as there is snow in the forecast for next Thursday!
Last weekend I was experiencing Quilter’s Block.
Quilter’s block is a lot like writer’s block–a temporary loss of ability to begin or continue quilting, usually due to a lack of inspiration or creativity.
Last weekend I managed to complete two very small projects:
1. I put the binding on my tulip Spiral table center. I think it goes quite well with the quilt I currently have hanging in the dining room.
2. I made a very small table center for St. Patrick’s Day. This table center is made with the same Spiral pattern as the tulip table center above, just smaller–only one round. This is a picture of the table center at my Mother’s house with her shamrock plant, all ready for March 17th.
