There’s a few shoots coming up in our front garden, but we’re unable to identify them.  Six shoots, growing in a straight line, that neither of us can remember planting.  We’ll just have to wait and see, and hope they survive the weather predicted for today.

While I haven’t been posting, I have been sewing. The mystery quilt top is finished and I gave it to my friend Mary to machine quilt. I changed the layout of the block, as well as some of the color placement and I’m happy with how it came out.  Some of the other ladies making this mystery quilt made fancy pieced borders. There are 56 blocks and 49 pieces in each block. After 2744 pieces, I put plain solid borders on it. There comes a point where I just get tired of a drawn out project and that certainly happened with this one. I’m sure, that when it comes back from the quilter, I will love it again. Meanwhile, I started a Halloween block of the month. The blocks are small (6×8) so they work up fast and it’s fun doing something completely different than piecing. This is the February block. There’s hand embroidery on each one too. Oh, and this happened. I’ve been dealing with pain in my right foot since the beginning of December.  After 2 x-rays and an MRI, it was finally diagnosed in mid-February as “almost” a stress fracture, that would become the real thing unless it was immobilized.  I can take the boot off to drive, as long as I put it back on when I exit the car, and stairs are difficult, but I’m persevering.  I see the doctor next week for a progress check.

January and February are tough months for me on several levels. Picture taking and blogging took a back burner as I took a break.
