Spring is here…

Yep, Spring is here…daffodils are showing off and trees are starting to bloom…all before St. Patrick’s Day?   The time change is putting a new bounce to my step.  Now evenings include rakes, walks, and a bicycle helmet.   I know Penny, our dog, is glad for the increased physical activity.

We had our initial “First Look” Club last Saturday at 8:45am.   We previewed new fabrics, patterns, and nifty notions.  Our next meeting is on Saturday April 14 at 8:45am. 
We plan to show some ideas of transferring photos and drawings onto fabric.  We just might pull out our computer!!!  Nebraska State Shop Hop’s theme is “Quotable Quilts”.  There will be plenty of opportunity to try the transfer methods with quotes from the participating quilt shops.

Dee found some old family photos (our great great grandmother and grandfather) and has transferred them onto fabric.  She’s planning a “family album” quilt using about 16 different photos. 

Block of the Month starts on Saturday, April 14 at 9:30am.  This is a fantastic quilt with the Stonehenge fabrics and Marti Michell’s templates.  See our website for more information.

So my immediate goals… raking,  clean out the garage, and walk the dog.  Take Care.  Marcia
