Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

Bunnies on the bed

Finally!  No, it's not yet spring here in the great Pacific Northwest.  It's cool and gray and wet.  Last night a horrible hail storm whose pellets lingered for at least an hour.  But at least we are not in Texas where damage from all of the worst of spring has rained down on the folks there.

My "finally!" is because I finally finished hemming the last side of the spring quilt I started last fall.  I was part of a mystery quilt along sponsored by Heather Spence Designs.  The pattern for the quilt is Heather's own:  Dan's Climb.  (I think you can buy it on Etsy.com).

Here's mine, all finished and on the bed, with the bunnies.

The colors are cheerful and springy.  Like others who are gray-soaked and gray-tired, I'm doing what I can daily to stay bright.  A brisk walk near the water's edge at Nisqually Delta is a good choice.  And bunnies on the bed bring a smile.

Heather has a new quilt along beginning soon, with funds benefiting cancer patients' extraordinary expenses.  Check her site or find her on FaceBook.

I think I'll choose a winter theme for my next quilt.  Based on past performance -- which in this case can be a big predictor of future behavior -- my 2012 spring quilt just might make it on the bed next January.

Where will the bunnies be then?

Bunnies enjoying the bright colors.
