The Birds are Back.

It feels like Spring is in the air.  The birds are arriving in large flocks.  The snow is melting and the air is feeling warm outside.  It is only February, so we will enjoy it, while it sticks around.  
The Secret Project's are finished.  They are on their way to the two young ladies who will be celebrating their 21st Birthday's in March.

Diamond Hill's first block is finished.
Berries, petals and flower centres.
 The Big Red Flower.

 Small flowers.
 Flowers stitched in place. 

 Tulips ? These flowers remind me of the tulips with the frilly edges.

 Almost done, just need the little green buds, at the top of the stems.

The block is finished, for now, the strips of fabric for the corners is still a creative choice, which has not been decided.

Sleep? Snow? Quilting?....

We have been reminded, by Old Man Winter, just what snow is.  As soon as one round of snow is cleared, the next arrive and so the pattern continue.  While outside the world turns cold and white, we are inside, cosy and quilting away.  The secret project is keeping me very busy, hopefully this week will see the end of this project.

Diamond Hill has received some love.  I found the background fabric for it.
The sage is the colour for my leaves, the cream with the blue stars, the background. Found both here.
The charm packs , some light grey binding, from yesteryear and some ribbon which compliments everything else.

The leaves stitched in place.
The stems, tacked on the background.
Last week I baked Lamington's.  Perfect for a cold day, just before the next storm arrived!
