On Saturday we were all in shorts, and sure enough, it snowed on Sunday!
That's spring in Colorado for you!
I got a ton of stuff done around my house this weekend. So many spring-cleaning jobs can be crossed off my list now. Yeah! Of course, right as everyone was leaving, I noticed that the threshold on the back door is falling apart and the door won't even open now. I guess it's on the list for next time. That's the way life works sometimes. Three steps forward, and two steps back.
But that's alright because there is alway next time!
It was fun to pull these pieces out again and start sewing. It's been at least 6 months since I have worked on them Sheesh! Where does the time go?
On Tuesday I will show you the whole quilt top. I can't decide if I love it, or if it's a bit visually stressful. Sometimes it takes the actual quilting to reveal that!
This is a spring cleaning weekend. On Saturday, my house will get the attention and on Sunday a friend's house gets our attention. I do love sharing chores like that, don't you? It actually makes it fun to work!
This week I had some time to sew up some lace curtains for my dining area. I purchased the curtains from Ikea, so all I needed to do was hem them up. Easy peasy! I love super quick projects, especially when I love how they love when they are done!
Now all I need to do is to make some new valances. The ones I have right now are still in that outdated "country" style fabric. Not sure what I want to do, but that will be upcoming soon!

I was gone on a little vacation for about a week, and in my absence spring snuck in. Very nice! Trees are starting to leaf out and the weather feels warmer. It's wonderful.
Is it just me, or are you completely over winter too?
The spring cleaning bug has bitten me big time. Yesterday I completely cleaned my shop area, and worked on my website. Also, my bedroom got a good cleaning and I threw a bunch of stuff away. Spring makes me want to de-junk, for some reason.
This morning I am going to tackle my closet. It seems silly to keep pillowcases that I haven't used for 10 years. And I also think that clothes I haven't worn for 2 years need to go too. But my closet is filled with them. Time to clean it out!
What about you? Is spring springing up where you are?
