We woke up to snow this morning... So much for expecting flowers today... So I have more scenery pictures just because it was very beautiful.
That is basically the same picture I took yesterday. Can't see the plum blossoms through the snow.
More plum blossoms wondering if they're supposed to bloom or not.
A bamboo grove with an excellent example of gradation.
A lonely power shovel waiting to work in the fields.
I did sew (quite a lot) yesterday. I've put away the Feathered Star until I figure out what to do about quilting lines and borders. I added the last strip around the whole quilt but it is a lighter color than the the other fabric. It can't be helped. I didn't have any more of the first light fabric... And I don't have any more of the medium fabric (in the lattice) either which might have been nice for a wide border. So... I either decide that this quilt is finished or go find a completely different medium colored border fabric. I'll take this to Thursday patchwork next week and see what my friends think.
I also put together the Noah's Ark BOM. I think if I were doing this again I'd make the frames around each embroidery block wider. Of course I could have taken these all off and put some new ones on, but I didn't want to get too far away from what Lynette was suggesting. BUT.. the extremely narrow frame made it very difficult to sew and my seam allowance turned out very wobbly. Today I'll work on a border for this too.
