Spring isn't quite here..

Not too spring-like here in North Carolina, which is unusual!  Since moving here in 2005, I've found spring to be a beautiful, warm season.  This year, it's still been downright chilly--not just in the morning, but all day long.  So, i just had to make my own spring.  A couple of weeks ago I won a fabric giveaway from Marianne Bos, who lives in Singapore!   Her fabrics are the print ones in this little quilt, which I then combined with some of my hand-dyed solids.
It's just a simple snowball quilt, still in the process of being sewn together.  (another UFO...)
Aren't her fabrics beautiful?  Thanks so much Marianne!

And I'm also finishing up this little quilt, too, which I showed in February.  Here are the leaf shapes that I cut out and moved around, then zig-zagged back on (using some heavy iron-on stabilizer on the back to hold them in place).  The piece was long, about 5' total, and yesterday after stitching the leaf shapes, I cut it in half, so now I have two pieces.  But they look like fish...
 Ok, and now I'm working on my second hooked rug, too.
