Hooray!!!

I finished my row for Janice's quilt! These rows are not sewn together, I just have them up on the wall. The village was Janice's inspiration row and we each are making rows to go with. If you click on the photo it will enlarge and you can see my bluework row on the bottom more clearly. This was a really fun one to do. I thought the needlework of the row is the star so opted to put those blocks together with just simple squares. many of those fabrics have metallic thread to give it a bit of shimmer.
The Olympics have started. I can remember Olympics past, having a hand project that I would work on throughout and I have decided to pull out my grandmothers flower garden and work on it while I enjoy the games. I actually call it My Mother's Garden at night. I'll take a photo of it in the next few days and show you where I am.
In the meantime, I got my project box out to work on more of the hexagons, went into the kitchen to get a cuppa tea and came back to find Dutch had made himself comfortable INSIDE my project box.....What is it about cats and quilters....
When I was blog surfing today, I came across a quilt that I immediately fell in love with and knew I HAD to make it!!! So I searched and searched and sure enough found the directions online and am excited about starting something new!!
My shoulder is still improving, but still aching more than not. The therapist says I have made pretty good improvement in my range of motion, and I think I agree. But I sure would like to be able to tie my apron on, and unhook my bra again.
The weekend looks pretty quiet. I'm hoping the weather will be calm and I can do some more work in the garden. I'm also planning to plant some seeds for the veggie garden this weekend and look forward to seeing their little sprouts! I'll do this inside and then transfer when the time is right. My garden is going to be heavy with herbs this year. Off to find my project and see who lights the torch!!

What a lovely group quilt - I'm inspired!!! Cats - and any fabric or any box or any bag - somehow they seem to think they have to be in the middle of it all. Yours is a beauty!!

Ohh I love the winter quilt - your blocks are so neat.

I'm working on (well, off and on) a GFG quilt too - it is for our youngest daughter's wedding (tentatively for next summer) so I have to be more on than off. Can't wait to see yours.
