What a difference a few weeks make. Two weeks ago, on my way to my second vaccine, it was snowing like crazy and my dh had to plow the driveway for me to get out. Today it's 60*! I'm not complaining.
We drove back to California for a short visit and I got my last regular block finished; I now need to prep for the drive back to Oregon... HUGE endeavor!!
I also decided to work on the new Barbara Brackman monthly sewalong and I got 3 blocks done to catch up. I had recently purchased a pile of pinks and had gotten a bunch of purples from Maine (A busy Thimble!), both of which were waiting to be put away. So that determined my color theme! Note the fussy cut bird in the center here--from DiFord's fabric line. LOVE it. I've also been collecting backgrounds with writing so I used some of that. FUN
Fortunately they are only one a month! I think I can keep up with that!
I took Zeke for a hike here in California yesterday to a new preserve. This was one of the views along the way.
Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend. Tonight is the first of Passover. None of my friends are doing the usual large seders so my dh and I are going to hold our own very minimal seder. Of course eating is a big part of this so I made chicken soup with matzoh balls (one of my favorites) and charoset (which is a mixture of apples, nuts, wine, dried fruit), which I always fill up on.
A shout out has to go to my dear friend Claire who has been our family's hostess for our seder for as long as I can remember. This year she's going to a family member's house instead rather than deal with it at her house. We will miss her family this year and hope for next year's seder with them all.
Take care. Get vaccinated, if you can. Stay safe! Mask up...
