Monday Madness

How was your weekend?  Mine was great, I got a lot done. Those are words you don't normally hear from me!  I have to say all the sunshine and the longer days really agree with me.  I got a lot of sewing done! I'm really happy about how this quilt turned out.  It's so bright and cheerful. The pattern is from Elizabeth's book The ABC's of Words on Quilts.

Hugs and Kisses

I love blanket stitching on my machine.  I could sit for hours just humming along with some good crime tv going on in the background. You can see we had a nice sunny weekend here.  Spring in California.  I'm enjoying it because soon enough it will be scorching and I'll be complaining.

Yesterday while I was out back this crow would not stop his yelling at me.  THE WHOLE TIME. He's quite far away in the top of my neighbors gigantic oak tree but O. M. G. was he loud.  And pretty annoying.

What's not annoying is my sweet little hummingbird.  She let me come quite close and take a million pictures.  I think by now there must be eggs in there, she's on the nest quite a bit.  I was looking back on last year, and its so much earlier. 
It's March Madness time! No, not the basketball, the Fabric!  If you are so inclined, a vote for PKM would so nice and very appreciated!  There's so many great fabrics to choose from.  If you'd like to check it out, here's the link!  It's exciting just to be nominated!
Ok, off to the studio! I'm super excited about what we're working on! Quilt Market is right around the corner!!!

A hummingbird nesting on a lightbulb - it's so cool. We don't have hummingbirds in Austria. And neither do we have spring - yet. It's snowing again. And they said on the radio it's never been so cold in the end of March ever. Below zero Celsius all day.

Your quilt is so pretty and the colours really are brightening my day!

Love your quilt, I've bought your fabric from Shabby Fabrics but I've only made 2 blocks with it. May I ask what machine you do your blanket stitch with?
