I like Thursday: April 16, 2020

Good Morning!  How are you doing?

We are hanging in.  Easter was fine and uneventful except for delivering food to our family members.  We couldn't see any of them unless they waved from the windows but it was still joyful to get some supplies to them.  So far so good with our "miracle man"--my uncle who had the liver transplant at the beginning of our lockdown.  He walked a mile one day last week!  My aunt is slowly but surely recovering from the stroke as well.  

The garden is blooming at a more rapid pace and it is now officially tulip season!

I like this towel my friend Pam sent me.  She sent me a whole box of antique and vintage linens and some I will share with my study group and some things I'm keeping--like this towel 😁

I like this poodle fabric and after making a ton of masks figured I may as well get around to making two for my husband and I (we had paper masks we were using).  Of course I used this fabric for my mask; my husband got a mask with some Flyers Hockey team fabric.

I'm still happily cutting my xmas fabric that I mentioned on Tuesday but I have finished binding another baby quilt.

 I like the quilting that my friend Terri did on it.  It has paw prints and kitten faces and whiskers on it!
Lastly, I am grateful for the beauty of spring which has been lifting my spirits every time Scout and I walk.
Have a great day and stay well!

I'm loving those beautiful flowers!! So wonderful that you and Scout have been able to get out and walk. And that paw/kitty quilting pattern is so fun! I'll have to look closely to see if I could figure out how to do it!!

Your flowers are so pretty! Mine are covered up under 8 inches of new-fallen snow today. What a sweet baby quilt, and I love your poodle fabric, too! That looks perfect for masks for you and your husband! Who would have ever thought we'd be saying that?!

Hi Michele! Wow, all the flower shots you shared are gorgeous. And the trees starting to bloom. I miss my big tree at work - I have a pair of cardinals who live in it, and it is fun to see and hear them at the start of Spring. I hope they have returned! That baby quilt is so cute and the quilting is just perfectly fun. It's not too dense so it will be nice and soft. So much love wrapped in that little bundle. Take care, my friend. ~smile~ Roseanne

Lots of nice sewing happening at your house Michele. Such perfect fabric for your masks. I am quite taken with that little embroidered design. I adore these vintage patterns. How wonderful to have spring in bloom around you. We seem more green every day but no blooms yet and with it going down cold overnight, I'm glad nothing is opened just yet. Meanwhile, hang in there. said...

Gorgeous flowers. Love your kitty quilt and the quilting is wow. Vintage linens are awesome and love the fabric for your mask.

Huzzah for good health and healing. Poodle fabric is cute - what fun for masks. Those blossoms are so pretty. Happy walking!

I love the paw prints quilting! Our Easter sounds like yours. Saw each other from a distance and ate at home with no company. Love the flowers! Love the vintage towel. So pretty!
