My local quilt shop is having a sale this month so I practised what I preached and moved rather rapidly down the highway to the store.
That sure got the heart racing, and we even managed to reach home before the violent storm hit our part of the city.
Now that the blood was pumping, I felt the need to cut out and pin the final feather of the first block in my appliqué quilt.
This is a long-term project, but one I am thoroughly enjoying. And so long as I don't look out the window, the colours fool me into thinking that it is really warm outside.
