Happy Spring!

This little bluebird came to the feeder today.

Here he is again with his mate. They stayed for awhile, maybe they will stay and nest in one of the houses we put up last year.

Here are all of the Dancing Batik blocks done and on the wall. The row on the right is pinned on the wall and that lump is the thermostat. Ran out of room. I like this setting instead of the one in the pattern, there are more blocks to play with. I am not sure if the colors are in their final place, so any input from an objective eye will be welcome. Now on to the spiky border. I want to find a way to incorporate a small inner border to make it just a little bigger to fit the bed. This will take a lot of quilting, too.

Here's another wall quilt, finally finished! I used orange thread and did a spiral pattern allover. I guess I'm in an orange mood, I think it's really a summer mood. What a long winter! I feel like a prisoner in my house, but I admit I'm happy that I don't have to drive to get to work.
