I added another quilt to my "mini quilt room" (aka the laundry room). This one is "Blessings" from the Temecula Quilt Co.

Day 190 of 365

We spent the last couple of days in the States (it is Spring Break here). Of course I had to go to my favourite needlework store and indulge my addiction to threads (my main blog is called Thread Head for a reason).

Working on some bullion flowers.
I recently realized that I have more than half way through the 365 days, it sure has been lots of fun.

Day 184 of 365

I was looking through my button jar and was pleasantly surprised by how many mother-of-pearl buckles I have - now I have to figure out how to incorporate them into my crazy quilting. The largest one is 2" long.

Day 181 of 365

The trees at the back were full of robins today - nice to see them back along with many other types of birds, always a good sign.
All the snow is now gone, plus the ground is almost dry, and it is not even spring yet - unbelievable.

Day 180 of 365

I accidentally deleted this post, so I am adding it back.

Last night we went to a gala, and this was the wonderful dessert.

Day 179 of 365

We waited in a long line-up for the car wash today, but our car sure needed a wash. There was quite the pile of dirty snow melting away beside us. 21C temperatures today and supposed to be 28C tomorrow - incredible.

Third time is a charm - this is the third time that I have started these socks and I think they are finally the right size.
