Well, it has been cold. When I opened the curtains in my office the other morning, this is what I saw.
Pretty, but . . . brrrrr!
Still, aren’t cold winter days the perfect time to spend in the sewing room working on a quilt?
I think so. I was definitely thinking so on those days I had to be on campus last week when it was below zero as I was walking to and from class!
But I have been dropping in the sewing room now and then. So progress is continuing to be made on the Barbara Brackman Civil War Sampler.
A couple more of the sampler blocks and working on some sashing strips and cornerstones as well.
I don’t suppose I’ll ever get tired of Civil War fabrics. I love a lot of different fabric styles – modern, batiks, French General (well, of course), but there’s always a little extra spark when I’m pulling out the reproductions. They warm my heart.
How about you? Any special fabrics that speak to you?
