Saturday Morning Coffee

It’s that time of year when I start to get spring fever. I revel in the times when we get sun and it is above freezing. I see the snow start to melt and I hear it dripping off the roof. Then occasionally we get more snow and I know that spring is not just around the corner. However, my mind starts to think about plants, gardens and growing things.

When the weather is a little warmer, I do want to buy a houseplant or two since I lost a couple over winter. I begin to think about what I want to do with the fairy garden and try to remember what plants I have in it. I have lots of photos from last year to reference when needed!

I have been long arming and slowly working through the pile of quilts I have to do. It feels good to be quilting on a regular basis. I have to count how many I have left to do. I am preparing to put 2 large customer quilts that are to be custom quilted. I am excited about it and can’t wait to start.

This week the patterns are releasing for the Xstitch the rainbow. I have to decide what patterns I want to stitch the new silk thread with that I preordered. I am limiting myself to buying 2 then see how much of the thread is left. There are so many to choose from and it is not going to be easy!!

Here are all 25 to choose from in this stitch along who all used the same thread colorway:

I am planning on working on Sewicialites2 block 18 this weekend. I am watching my shows and am excited because the Mandalorian is back, Bad Batch is back, and I found a sweet show on the BBC called Maker’s Market where artists are trying to make a living as a maker.

I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Sounds like wonderful progress in all areas! I have decided I have to finish unpacking to free my creative mind so I have been tackling the last of my boxes from my move. I am constantly surprised how long it takes me to anything so I make a list in the evening to see that I am actually getting things done. You have been so motivating and I always hear your “15 mins” pep talk in my head😊. Stay well and I hope this month gives you some more spring previews and that mountain of snow in your back garden can begin to melt!
