Baby Steps with Projects

I've gotten a little bit of a lot of things done in the last week.  Here are the highlights.

First, I've gotten most of the quilt top that was on my design wall assembled.  This is a big accomplishment for me because I really need my design wall open for when I start sewing my Postcard quilt.  

This quilt is the result of a class I took several (three?  four?) years ago from Kimberly Einmo.  I just have to add the outer borders and then figure out how to quilt it, which might take me another three or four years to accomplish.  The good news is that I already have backing and binding purchased.  Fabric is Kate Spain's Horizon.

The next accomplishment belongs to my husband.  He grouted all the tile over the weekend.  I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Here are a few garden pictures.  The first two are of the shrubs we moved.  So far they seem okay. No new growth, but it's been really rainy and not as warm this past week.  We definitely need to clean the siding on the back of the house this year!

My daffodils are starting to bud.  Last year at this time they were blooming, so we're not too far off.  I'll be so happy when everything is greened up again.  

I also had another quilt finish.  I got the binding all sewn on this Christmas quilt. The pattern is available for free from Fort Worth Fabric Studio and the fabric is Kate Spain's Jingle.

Tomorrow I'm going to a quilt show.  Maybe I'll have some pictures to share next week?
