I've been a real slacker with the blog this year. Mostly because I have so much going on and lately--while there is a lull in my mother's surgeries--because we are truly experiencing "April Showers"--and that means horrible photos because the light is bad. Of course it could be worse. Check out the weather Allie has been experiencing here. Sorry Allie but you just made me grateful for the rain..EGADS!
Today I'm nursing a stiff back and guess what...it's going to rain again! Yesterday I drove to the Poconos to do my Sunbonnet Program for a quilt guild. Mapquest thought the drive would take one hour and twenty minutes but it took me 3 hours because something happened on Route 80 and the highway and local roads became a parking lot. I did get a very scenic look at the area including a town calleded "Paradise." Fortunately, I arrived at the guild in plenty of time because I left so early (just in case things like this happen) and had a great time there. A lot of the members brought their own sunbonnets and it was awesome to see their support of the quilt pattern.
Now getting back to blog business. In March, I posted that I was working on mug rugs, etc. I'm really on this "use it or lose it" kick and particularly with my fabric. Here's what I did with that old set of polyester stars I picked up. My friend Linda loves Autumn colors and I did this with her in mind:
More pics if we get more sunshine! Hopefully soon!
