I made a bit of a mess of the background, having used some really old pastels that used to belong to my grandma. I wonder how old they are? (carb-Othello brand).

Welcome Spring!

It hasn't been a cold winter, but it has been wet. Everything is super green here, though the blooming daffodils have been pounded down by heavy rains and wind.
 
I hope to make a little art today. The next week or two will be very work-centric, so there won't be much time to be creative.
 
We will be hosting another "Music Night" at our house this coming Wednesday, and while I'd hoped to have that day off to prepare snacks and clean house, I have to work. That does add to my stress level a bit, because I like to be a bit more organized and ready. I think the turnout will be good.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

And what a beautiful green day here on the Oregon Coast (and I can see the sun!).

Happy Valentine's Day!

I won't see my sweetie - he's got all day and overnight duty at his mom's, but he knows I'm thinking of him.

Sister Quilts

A couple years ago I bought charm packs to make quilts for my sister and myself. I finished mine in 2015, and finally finished hers last night. I started it the week before Christmas, and while I had a feeling I wouldn't get it done in time for the holiday, I did manage to finish the top so I had something to wrap.
 
The one I finished last year was originally intended for her - but it went so well with my living room colors, I kept it for myself. Her quilt is on the left, mine on the right. I took her quilt top to the fabric store, and had a little trouble finding a print that would complement all the colors of the top. Turns out I picked the same fabric as my backing, but a different colorway. 
 
Here's a link to information about the moda fabrics I used:
 
Addendum: Now that this project is done, I broke down and took the Bernina in for some routine maintenance. Out comes the old Viking, which I haven't used in a long time...and it still sews!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I'm off to work in a bit, but hope everyone stays healthy and happy (thereby avoiding the ER!)
