Good morning, my friends. It's officially the last day of winter. Tomorrow...SPRING!!! Who isn't ready for that? We had a beautiful pre-spring day yesterday...a "false spring," according to Erik and Mae. We went to the Beaverton farmer's market. The sun was so bright it was hard to see what was at the market. We weren't complaining though. Before making our way through the different vendors, we bought our breakfast and enjoyed Erik's fresh squeezed orange juice along with the sunshine.
There was nothing much at the market I wanted. I'm still waiting for the fresh fruits and veggies, but Erik and Mae get almost all their food at the market. They are smart and healthy shoppers.
I'm always an early-riser, and I'd been up since 5:00 a.m. As I was driving home, I was feeling a little bleary-eyed, and so I took a short nap when I got home. When I woke up, it was time to dispense with St. Patrick's Day and bring out the Easter decor. I hung my little Bunny Garden stitchery on the short wall between the kitchen and dining room. This is a downloadable pattern from Lynette Anderson.
Of course, you probably remember the Bunny Go-Round, finished just recently. This is a free pattern from Doghouse Designs.
For the table, this Bunny Quartet, which was a free pattern from the Moda Bakeshop.
I suppose if you're being generous, you could say I finished the day's housework with that. It was time for the morning's slow-stitching, only it was well after noon by then. I stitched enough to move my hoop. This morning, I'll start someplace fresh.
By then, it was time to get to work on my quilt blocks. Sadie was there to help pull fabrics for the applique.
Today I'll get to work on Block #8. I want to finish the fusing on both before I start on the top-stitching.
The weather isn't quite as nice today, but we're expecting another nice day by Tuesday. It's a walking day for me. I'm still undecided whether to stay in or go out. Aside from that it'll be a usual kind of day: Sunday morning blueberry pancakes, slow-stitching, then sewing.
We were supposed to be camping this past week, and so I had a reprieve from any housekeeping chores. They'll be back on my to-do list soon enough. How is the weather treating you in your part of the world? If it's bad, take heart. Spring will arrive tomorrow. Time marches on.
