The first day of spring was yesterday?
As usual, I'm a day late,
and as always, a dollar short.
When Crafty Daughter says, "Mom, will you make me a/some....,
she always gets what she asks for!!
It's difficult to resist, especially when someone
really appreciates your work.
Awhile back, she asked for seasonal wallhangings.
We searched around and decided Kim Schaefer's Calendar Quilts
looked like a fun place to begin the journey.
I've just completed the hand-quilting,
and now only lack a label.
(Do you hand-quilt?
Check out Celebrate Hand Quilting,
a blog I only recently discovered.)
A machine applique project,
it worked up fairly quickly.
This is my second one.
(Of course, there are bugs on it!
Come to think of it , there are bugs on the first one I made, too!)
Not all of my daughter's seasonal wallhangings
come from this book,
but there are still some cute ones left for me to make!
Time goes by fast enough, and I hate wishing it away,
but I'm glad spring has finally arrived
(in most places)!
