Look what popped open yesterday? DJ called me outside to take a peek at the crocuses that he said appeared overnight and in spite of a heavy frost and 26 degrees when we got up. I don't care what Punxsutawney Phil said or didn't say (we have the "Birmingham Bill" counterpart--spring is right around the corner here.
I have gotten a little of my scrappy bargello top together---one of the stratas using 30 strips cut 3 inches for me. I just did the sub-cuts and will start joining them when I get back from walking. You may remember that nicely stacked pile of strips from my last post? Well, they don't look like that now!
The quilt group received some bad news Friday evening. Long time readers will remember me talking about Sarah, our oldest Bama Belle. Her daughter Jane is a member of the group as well and they did about everything together. Sarah had been ill and hospitalized for about a month and succumbed to that illness. Just too much for her body to take and continue the fight. The funeral is tomorrow and the quilt groups are helping with the luncheon.
Please say a prayer for Jane and her family--it has been a rough month.
Okay, the cake I am taking as my offering is done, shoes are on to go walk. I'll frost it when I get back and then back to these strips to see how it looks. I put some fabrics that some dear friends have given me over the years in here so this one is mine, no matter how it turns out!
