Spring is in bloom in San Antonio Texas!
Irene had to stop the car for me on the way to yesterday’s workshop with the Greater San Antonio Quilters –pink blooming things are my absolute favorite!
HOORAY!! There really IS an end in sight to this winter!
I’m sure those folks in the frozen North East are thinking it can’t be true at this point – but eventually – things WILL bloom again!
As for you folks up in Maine – I’m headed your way in late March – please tell me that blizzard conditions will be over by late March?? Ha!
We left Irene’s yesterday morning planning ahead for much of this kind of thing on a Friday commuter morning:
Oh yeah, welcome to San Antonio rush hour!
But still, this lovely morning held the promise of a gorgeous day that delivered just that – and more!
It brought a sold out workshop together and we spent the day sewing away on our Texas Tumbleweed blocks!
It’s always fun to teach this one in Texas!
Texas Tumbleweed appeared in a past issue of Quiltmaker Magazine and is also found in my book MORE Adventures with Leaders & Enders.
It was a fun and scrappy kind of day!
Bundles of blocks coming together!
In all color ways including this one which will be a wedding gift.
Photo op of all our blocks!
It was a great day and everyone had a good time – I know I did!

Last evening was filled with much more of this:
Another stack ready for trimming!
I have gone as far as I can with the small little kit I bought at Las Colchas on Thursday morning.
And I realized something. If I buy fabric that is going RIGHT into a project – and not being stashed, it doesn’t count against the stash total, right? It’s guilt free!
I understand there is a great quilt shop not to be missed in Kerrville –I might have to find something MORE that I can sew in right away, thus remaining guilt free!
Today is a double duty day – morning guild meeting presentation for the Greater San Antonio Quilters, followed by a half day Scrap Crystals workshop.
Loads of Easy Angle half-square triangles and a fun afternoon ahead ---
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
