Enough Is Enough!

Today is the first day of spring and I was hoping to get this flannel quilt off of my bed soon!

But Mother Nature has not been kind to us here in north-central PA this March -- well, actually, she's been fairly normal, but normal can be over-rated...especially in March and especially since we had 80-degree temperatures last year at this time! I love snow and winter, but only through about mid-February. After that, I'm ready for warmer days and sunshine. But it looks like this quilt will not be put away for a few weeks yet.

I made this quilt back in 2001 and I blogged about it here; it has held up surprisingly well, considering that it has been on our bed every winter since then, for at least six months at a time, and has gone through the washer and dryer quite a bit.

Only one of the fabrics has started to wear through, as you can see in the photo below...and it's only in a couple of spots.

Anyway...Happy First Day of Spring, Everyone!

here too - one day it is in the 80's the next in the 60's then in the 40's and the circle begins - I would love for it to settle into the 60's at least and stay there for awhile.

I have that same blue print in a log cabin quilt that I have finally completed the top and am waiting for the chance to pin baste and quilt. Flannel is such a buttery fabric. I am addicted to flannels!!

I have been poring over my garden seed no avail, there's still snow on the ground! Here's to sunny days ahead, hopefully sooner rather than later. :-)
