I did get some FMQ teaching done…we had a great class this month! I totally forgot to take any pix though, boo! I also gave a private lesson to someone on their awesome Tiara, a sit down long-arm, another successful evening!
I also had 3 custom scarves to dye, those got done. I’ve also dyed 2 baby layettes, I’m just waiting for my a new washing machine to be delivered (mine broke 2 weeks ago, I am SO glad I got the extended warranty!) so I can do a final hot washout on that. Using my custom dye sink for these was awesome!
I’ve had at least one project in Quilting Arts Holiday issue for the past 4 years, but I’d decided that I had too much on my plate this year to submit something….but then, they extended the deadline, so….I am thinking about submitting something. I know, this delays the other stuff I want to do, I made the decision to not submit so many projects for magazines, but I hate to break my Gifts streak. I’ll see what happens with that this weekend!
I also had a fabulous visit from one of my friends from my old quilt guild in Ohio, Kathy, and her friend Eva (on the left), whom Kathy is visiting in LA:
They both bought some scarves, including the 2 they are wearing, which both look FABULOUS on them!
Outside we’ve got oranges:
and Meyer Lemons blooming:
Between those and the Jasmine all over town, it smells incredible around here! I am so glad my nose has cleared up enough for me to smell it!
We had a glorious rain last night, some of my roses have started to bloom and got all washed off:
Somebody has been stealing my almost ripe strawberries…
Yep, it’s SPRING!
