I put up a "Kettles in the Kitchen" wall size quilt up in my sewing room. After buying giant sized strawberries at Costco this weekend, it just seemed to be the quilt to enjoy. I really need to make freezer strawberry jam this year. I hope this reminds me as strawberries become more plentiful. I just love this strawberry print.
And since I've been waking up to birds chirping for the past week I think my "In the Leafy Treetops" quilt is just right to be up in my entry way to welcome April this week. The birds in the quilt always make me feel good. I've been watching and listening to birds outside my sewing room window of late. They know spring is coming and I believe them. I'm starting to see just the little brown nubs on a few of our trees that tell me buds are developing. I can't wait for the days that I can open the windows and let a little spring air inside.
On a side note . . . this is what my cutting mat is looking like. I have grooves worn in and I've flipped it over previously so they are on both sides. I think it might be time to get a new mat. But I've been waiting for a pretty red or yellow mat to come out. Whats up with green for most mats? Is there a reason for green? I'm kind of sick of this color and wish I had something snazzier to cut fabric on. Is there something else out there?
