I just read in Laurie Simpson's blog that she's all primed and waiting for the UPS truck to bring her fabric so she can start sewing. I'm envious. Edie McGinnis and I are doing the Block of the Month for the KC Star for 2010. We're both really excited about it. Right now, however, I'm at the stage where I'm drawing all the patterns into my computer so I can print them out. Then we get to play with the fabric. And this morning I did the pattern layout for the kit we send out in May. So I'm taking a break for awhile. I was standing at the kitchen sink looking out the window. The birdfeeders are mostly empty by this time of day so there aren't many birds there either - just one lone chicken. Well - after all she is a bird! We have a couple of rabbits that come out from the trees behind the fence and eat the corn that drops beneath the bench.
I think that's why rabbits have been showing up in my quilts the last few years. Oh and I put in this picture of "Miss Tabitha Twitchet". I got it out to put on the loveseat in the kids TV room for spring. I didn't notice it when I made it but the Liberty Garden fabric I used for the borders has eagles in it. Poor rabbit - living in a quilt all of her life with an eagle beside her.
Well, I'd better get back to the computer. Edie's coming up Wednesday and we get to sew. And I am doing my applique on my pineapple quilt for Market so there's something to look forward to each night and morning. Happy quilting, ladies.
