Time flies when you're having fun, lol. Can it really be mid April? This winter was so cold, even for us, that I thought it would never be over. But now things are warming up I am looking forward to getting back out on the trails, and getting more quilting energy.

I haven't done a lot of quilting, but I did do this neat artsy wallhanging called The Nest. It is different then anything else I have ever done, and I really like it. I got the pattern from Such Designs.

I also got a pattern for a Rock Cairn wallhanging, from the same place, that I have almost done. I got it all finished and then decided that it needed one more rock on top. Don't you agree? It is all ready to be stitched down. Then I want to paint my kitchen/dining room pale gray to match it. This wall hanging is 24" x 72".

Block Lotto. Fused batik flowers this month. Cute. But alas, I didn't win.

During those cold days of this past winter I finally learned to knit with circular needles. I made myself 2 felted hats that I love!!! They were so much fun to do.

Lori Holt came out with a new book called Farm Girl Vintage. I pre ordered it and it came last week. Wheee!!More really cute patterns. She is going to do a sew along on Instagram starting May 1st. I get more stuff done when Im doing a sew along, lol.

Hope all is well with everyone. I am still alive, lol.

It's good to see what you've been up to ... love the knitted/felted hats and the artsy wall hangings.

Interesting rock piece. The felted hats are wonderful. I won't be doing the sew along with Lori, but have ordered the book.

The wall hangings are so cute. I love the way you've arranged that shelf under the nest. One more small rock on top would be great on the other one! I don't knit, so seeing something like your hats is always interesting. Looks like they'd be great in cold weather, definitely! Glad spring is coming for you finally.
