Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

I mentioned in my last post that we had a winter storm brewing. It came, snowing furiously for much of Wednesday into Thursday.

A snowstorm at this time of year is pretty short-lived. It comes, messes up traffic, gives us one more exercise at shoveling, and then is gone when the warmer spring sun comes out.

While the storm came through, I curled up in my favorite chair, watched multiple episodes of Poldark on Masterpiece Theatre, and stitched up the March Block of the Month from River’s Edge Antiques and Quilt Loft. Each month this cute little quilt shop posts a free woolie block of the month on its website and Facebook page. It’s only free during its month; after that you have to pay to download it. So if you like it, go get it — quick! Honestly, it’s cuter when done than I thought it would be.

While still working on the superheroes quilt, I decided to take a day off from it and just do something fun. I had this cute quilt kit from a LQS with a mini charm pack from Moda that I have been itching to make. I actually downsized it a bit because I have a particular spot I want to use it.

It's lighter in this picture than it really is -- the green border is more of a bright olive

Today will be a quiet day at home. I’ll be doing some quilting, of course. Tonight we will go to a Tennebrae service at our church, to mark the beginning of our Easter weekend.

Happy Stitching!
