Signs of Spring, Staying Focused on Quilting.
Came home this afternoon to this view of the courtyard. It's hard to see but the weeping cherry tree buds are starting to swell, often by this time it is in bloom but due to a very cold and snowy February they haven't burst forth yet.
Did you notice the ducks resting by the edge of the pond. here is a closer peek. We've had nesting ducks at our pool since at least 2000. Maybe we will see some this year. Several years ago they cleared a lot of the undergrowth from the edge of the pool and they stopped.
I started doing some of the embellishment stitching on Wednesday at my wool group on block 1 of House Party Revival.
House 2 has the stitching along the roof edge but still needs the chimney and other touches.
Last night I started this block and today at my Friday group I got almost all the bias stitched down. Then I'll add the rest of the wool applique and start on House 4.
