Spring is coming

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Rainer Maria Rilke

Spring is still weeks away but it was in my heart this week. 🙂

Most of the week was spent on finishing up some of my stitching projects and working on ideas for my next set. As I was returning fabrics to my storage wall, I came across two panels I had purchased last year on a visit back to Victor, NY. I bought them with a purpose in mind but abandoned the idea after I returned out west. As often happens, the panels became buried in a pile…

I decided that there was a better use for the panels than sitting in my storage cubbies. It took only a few hours to create a potential quilt top to be passed on to Quilt Beyond Borders where it can bring joy to someone going through some difficult times. For the moment though, the quilt top is hanging on my design wall, brightening my days as I count down to Spring. 🙂

Linking as always to Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday blog. She writes this week about a movement by a number of art museums in the U.S. to share images in their digital collections with the public free of charge and copy right licensing. Be sure to check it out!
