The sun has finally come out and it is 15 degrees today. You would think that everyone had been forced to leave their homes - everyone is out walking, raking lawns, and driving to the local nurseries to buy garden seeds and flowers. It has been a really long winter!
Mennonite Relief Quilt Auction. (To see some of the fabulous quilts that will be for sale - click here.) These kits will be sold at the auction in May, and the blocks will be collected to make into a quilt for next year's auction. To see the basket quilt they auctioned last year (from the kits sold in 2009) click here. The theme for this quilt is flowers, so I am contemplating trying out my new applique skills.
This week I've been mostly preoccupied with the royal wedding. I got up at 5 am on Friday and searched until I found a TV channel with no talking and no commercials, just watching the events as they occurred in real time. I was delighted that my daughter got up with me and we enjoyed every bit of the coverage. My maternal grandmother was born in England and her family emigrated to Canada when she was a child, so perhaps that explains why I have been captivated by the whole thing?
Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I really wanted to work on this UFO, but didn't pick it up all month. I sewed a couple of purple words for my virtues quilt and a few purple blocks were made for my crumb quilt. This week I sewed a purple border around some very colourful blocks donated to the guild comfort quilt project, so now it's ready to quilt.
But I didn't really put much of a dent in my purple scraps :(
However, the month is over now and it's time to move on to a new colour...what will it be? You have to check out the scrappy blog tomorrow to find out.
