But before we go to the loft and start playing - we get to go through the garden on the way!
With all the April showers we've had - we'd better get lots and lots of May flowers!
And really, we've already been playing. The flat folds came straight from Korea so they had to be unfolded (they're 44" wide - not 22) and redone to stack on the table. They're just easier to work with that way. So yesterday afternoon was spent folding fabric and stacking it on my table. Here's a glimpse of one side.
Now the real work begins. We're trying for 6 quilts before Market. Well - 2 quilts and some wallhangings.
Meanwhile, just in case we weren't busy enough, Tara and Kelly decided to have a Spring Fling Sale. Here's the email Kelly sent out if you're interested. And if you want to be notified of our specials you can go to www.janpatekquilts.com/ and sign up for the emails if you haven't already..
Well - off to the loft to play with fabric!

The fabrics not here yet but the babies came Wednesday - and were made all cozy and snug in their brooder house.
And to take breaks from sitting at the computer working on patterns and directions for the sewers, I get up and walk through the garden a couple of times each morning and afternoon
This is such a beautiful time of year around here! The divinity of God shines through the diversity of creation.

I've been a pretty bad blogger lately. I pulled a muscle in the back of my right leg shoveling snow about six weeks ago. It got inflamed and either sitting at the computer or driving makes it worse as does a lot of walking. Even now this is going to be short. The small amount of time I spend at the computer is spent working. But today it feels good enough to do a little. It's so beautiful outside I just need to show you some pictures of the garden.
This of course, is not the garden. This is our Easter Lamb Cake. Both Pep and I spent part of our childhood back East and remember Lamb Cakes each Easter. This year we got a mold and started the tradition for our grandchildren.
This obviously is the garden. Tulips & hyacinths.
And just one of our many forsythia.
There's lots more going on - it's great just to walk out to feed the birds and see what's new each day. Life is pretty good - now if my body would just cooperate more :)
Hope you all had a great Easter and have a good spring.
Fabric due at the end of the month!!! Yay!
