I am in Wisconsin as I type this, visiting my daughter's family. The weather is early spring here. On Sunday afternoon I helped Eva divide her rhubarb plant into four pieces to start filling the bed she built for it teo seasons ago. The soil here in Madison is dark and rich, especially after years of turning in good compost. :) Only one very early bulb flower is blooming in her yard but many leaves are pushing up green and vigorous. i don't recognize the flower at all which surprises me. If I can figure out how to post photos from this phone interface to my blog, maybe you will know what they are?
Meanwhile, back in Maryland, my daffodils are blooming profusely. My husband texted me a photo to tease me - he knows I look forward to them every year. :)
I plan to stay here until Friday morning. That way my drive across Iowa will hopefully be easy. Also going around Kansas City can be done NOT at rush hour. :)
Other than playing with baby and chatting with my daughter and son-in-law, I have been sewing on the Gravity quilt. Have made several mistakes to share with my students (not on purpose - I am very capable of making unintended errors!). On the whole, I really like what I have done. This is a fun quilt to make - with careful cutting and a good quarter inch seam, it is entertaining to piece and play with colors.
I started off thinking I would make a small version with the mini Hex n More ruler. Now I'm thinking it will make a fun backing motif/focus.
