Embroidered Churn Dash

Another quilt done! This has just come out of the dryer and is so soft and cozy.  It's a little puffy do to my hand quilting without a hoop or frame, but I'm happy with it overall. I really enjoyed picking out the fabrics and floss colors, and doing the embroidery. I've got another quilt that I'm anxious to start quilting, but I'm determined to finish some PhDs (projects half done.) As usual, there is not enough time!

The weather this week has been cool (with frosts) and today was rainy. It's driving me crazy! I need some warm, sunny days to work in the gardens.  There is a lot to do and I'm itching to start planting. I find it very hard to go to work on nice days now. Do any of you feel like that too? (I saw on the Weather Channel that next week is going to be nice. Maybe I'll get sick:)

We went to a new antique store (the prices were really good!) and bought a couple of things to use in the yard. One is an old hand pump that Rick is going to make into a water fountain. I'll share pictures soon.

Thanks for visiting me and have a great Sunday!

I love your sweet quilt, Cindy! It has such a charming, vintage style and looks so soft and cuddly! I see that you have a touch of 'spring fever'! The only cure is to play hooky :) xo Karen
