We had time to make some decorations for St. Patrick's Day:
We made some spring bouquets to brighten our house:
Tissue Paper Cherry Blossoms
I completed a Halloween project I have had in my mind for months now:
I finished a big WIP that I started last year!
I call it my "Butterfly Meadow" quilt. It's not bed sized, but I made it to use while snuggling on the couch. The colors were really a treat to work with as winter seems to be lingering on and on.
I took some previously finished cross stitch and turned one into a small pillow, and for the other I tried a cube finish. I know there are no-sew cube finishes, but for some reason I felt I needed to stitch mine together. Next time I will do the no-sew version!
I have always wanted some kind of "tree" to hang my cross stitch ornaments on. Once the snow melted I raided the yard for broken branches and spray painted them white. I finished off some more previously stitched egg designs into quickie ornaments by backing them with felt, and they are now hanging on my tree with two Ellen Maurer- Stroh spring ornaments I have stitched this month
And finally, back in February I went crazy making elephants from the book Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. If you grew up in the 70's you may recognize some of these fabrics! I raided my stash of colorful pillowcases and sheets to make this passel of pachyderms:
Meet Happy, Rosie, Peanut, Star, Mel and Violet.
And that, my friends, is what we have accomplished so far! I have to say, I am lovin' our Lenten decision!
