Remember when I got all excited about that fabric way back in 2009? Well it did become available and here I am quilting a little quilty for my little baby. I was so nervous to start a hand-quilted quilt. I kept thinking back to the days when I was young and couldn't focus on a project for more than 10 minutes (literally) and I was nervous that I would quickly tire of the quilting and never finish but I'm already half way done and I'm really enjoying my time slowly stitching. It's really so satisfying! I'm actually excited at the prospect of more quilting when this one is finished.
And for those who might care, the fabric is from Far Far Away II by Heather Ross, and I'm quilting with Perle Cotton embroidery thread a'la Anna Maria.
Also in today's news:
Spring is springing here in the land of enchantment!
Bluebell starting laying again (more light = more laying you see)
Some very over-achieving irises are popping their cute little heads out of the sand! Yay!

This is one of my newest favorite songs.
And the group is one of my newest favorite bands (do we call it a band? I'm so not cool). Introduced to me by my Dad, of all people. He got me to like classic rock as a kid and now we share a mutual like of Pomplamoose.
Thanks, Dad. I owe you.
