When you live on the East Coast of Canada you never know what Mother Nature has in store for you , yesterday was a beautiful sunny and mild day after a very heavy rain storm the evening before which caused some local flooding , today , well it is back to cold weather and snowing.It looks like a snow globe outside , rather pretty but not what I like to see about now ,I would like spring :-( March is not my favorite month of the year , the weather changes are never good for the bones and you are never quite sure how to dress but we are half way through so we can always hope things will change for the better real soon .
Now it might be a nasty day outside but my day was made brighter by some mail from my blogging buddy Annette of In stitches and seams .Annette is a wonderful friend and always willing to give me a hand when I am stuck with my quilting , she has a vast array of talents . Here is what was inside my package a little green just in time for St. Patrick's Day .
I am still working on my nine patch + blocks , almost finished , I took a break to work on these two blocks
What else have I been doing you might ask , well I completed my project for the upcoming blog hop by Mdm. Samm " Stitch me Up" , I think it turned out rather cute but sorry you will have to wait on that one as I will have to wait until my day to share :-) Have you all been following along with the Nancy Drew Blog hop , wow that is a fun one,I was a huge Nancy Drew fan as a young girl , also loved Trixie Beldon ,I loved to read so would be a regular visitor at our local library just waiting for the next book to come out .
I recently won a giveaway from Cath at Bits and Bobs, I know I took a photo when it first arrived but for the life of me I can't find it so it must have gotten deleted , however here is a photo I took today of the lovely fabric and tassels that Cath so kindly sent to me .
Time to see if I can get the sewing machine to sew those nine patches together ,I would love to get that top finished . Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you can take a few minutes to be creative .
