Saturday stitches and more

P1030645

Days have been flying – and I have been down with a nasty cold.
The furball and I have been resting a lot this week.

I am also working on something I can not show you yet, but as you see it includes a Dear Jane block

Last year I promised my friend Cindy a 2” Papa’s Star for her miniature Dear Jane quilt.
Now it is made and looking good :-)
Compared to an ordinary Papa’s Star block (4,5 “ + seam allowance), you see how small it is.
It was fun to do!

P1030654Spring is not springing for a long time yet, as you see from my veranda and garden. Can you see the cat routes in the snow?

P1030651DH brought home this big bouquet of tulips today, so even if outdoors is not much spring like, the living room is getting there :-)

Oh my dear God in Heaven, Hanne that block is amazing!

I am so honored and humbled that you would make that block for me.

I can't imagine how I can repay this favor.

Thank you, Dear Friend.

The mini Papa star is very impressive. I'm going to have to stop complaining about snow (although we did have a squall today) after seeing what you have left! We've lost a lot to rain, which did bring some minor flooding, but it's gone down quite a bit (I'm in New Hampshire - northeast coast of the US).

Enough snow already! Bring on spring!
