I finished up the embroidery on my mini blocks from Leanne's House. I did my first applique piece (the heart) using freezer paper and it actually turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. And how cool that Michelle (Cozy Egg) and Sonya (Silver Thistle) have signed up for these lovely monthly blocks too! We will have to do a quilt-along.
Finally I feel some satisfaction to my craving for colour. Of course not when I look outside. We still have snow and although we have had day after day of sunshine, this terrible cold snap is doing nothing to get rid of the snow. Today the forecasters have started to call for temperatures about 0 degrees C, and then warming up for the weekend to a nice balmy 6-7 C ( high 40's F?). I can't wait ......
Nick has started his March break and he and girlfriend Kristy are off to the Toronto Zoo today. I miss the days when I used to take the kiddies, it was always a March break day trip for us. I don't day infringe on his special day planned for Kristy but I would so love to go! I guess I'm just a big kid too :-D
