I'm way over due for a post!

 



After a long winter--let's celebrate
inside..for now!

   
  
My new table topper " Spring Pavers" was fun to make. Country Threads Quilt Shop located in Garner, Iowa designed this pattern.
 
 
Yesterday, I received a lovely packed from "Lesley".  
She knew I enjoy decorating for Christmas and sent me this cheerful table topper.
 
 The back of the quilt is beautiful too.....so special. "Thank You, Lesley!" 


 
I have been working on cream, tan and beige 12 inch blocks and will use them in a quilt, incorporated with blocks I'm receiving, in a monthly Australia block swap exchange.  
  
For now, we can plan "think green" and look forward to "SPRING"!
Hugs, Carolyn

  1. Good to hear from you again, Carolyn!
    That looks like a very happy African Violet!
    Your Spring Pavers is so fresh and pretty.
    And what a wonderful gift from Lesley!!
    Those neutral-type blocks should make a very nice project--kind of the "low volume" theme. : )

  2. I have missed your posts! Thanks for sharing your quilts and pretty blocks. Your last photo gives me hope; first day of spring arrived here with a big frost. I'm worried for the fruit farmers, although I don't think much has budded yet.
