sun, glorious sun

I could not had planned it better; the first week of my full retirement and suddenly the nature remembered that it is supposed to be spring.
As the week went on, it got better and better;
 the last couple of days the temperature shot up to 20C; at last!
The first thing I did this week was to sort out my work room; with addition of some new storage boxes everything now has its place - buttons, beads, felting supplies, threads, tapestry wools, ribbons, various embellishments... besides the fabrics, of course.
It is surprising what one finds; projects long forgotten and now rediscovered, they too now have their own boxes.

I sorted out the backing for the flying geese quilt and started to hand quilt it in a very simple way; the quilt is "busy" enough with so many various fabrics and colours, it doesn't need any complicated quilting design.

One of the long forgotten projects I came across was "Chateau Hexagon",
button BOM by Lynette Anderson.
I am sure many of you finished this long ago.
For me it is like starting a brand new project.
Sitting outside in the sunshine today I finished the first two blocks .

Lets hope that this time the spring is here to stay!
The latest couple of Quiltmania blocks are waiting to be done.

I wish you all wonderful weekend!
