Saturday Snapshot

This is a turtle from North Carolina that my mother-in-law photographed. I thought it was a great picture so I am sharing it in Saturday Snapshot.

Saturday Snapshot

This was taken on a recent brew day. The beer is a dry stout (the dark part of the picture) and it had lots of protein coagulating on it (the light colored bits). It is on tap now and looks much better. I liked the textures in the picture though.

A view of spring in Manchester, NH--which most likely won't appear until May.

Retreat Next Weekend!

This coming weekend is the Amoskeag Quilt Guild's winter retreat. Once again I will be going along with several members of my bee. In addition to eating, drinking, making #timetoread, and lots of hanging out with my pals here is what I hope to get done at this retreat:
  • Quilt the tessellation quilt which I got finished and basted this weekend. If I could get it bound as well that would be great, but space to square it up properly at retreat could be an issue.
  • Paper piece at least one and maybe four circles for my Tropical Whimsey paper piecing project. 
  • Quilt the Schnibble I pieced at the last retreat. I finished it up and basted it this weekend so it is ready to quilt.

Saturday Snapshot

At this point (January in New Hampshire) my backyard is a vast expanse of brown vegetation covered in snow and ice. I decided a summer picture from the yard would be a good thing this week. It helps to remind me that world won't be covered in snow and ice forever (it just feels that way).

Done: Flag Quilt

I finished a flag quilt, which will go into the stock for my Etsy shop when I get it open. I have made lots of these over the years, and plan to do a pattern for it. This one is the first one I have made with the new star that my friend Heidi came up with. It worked really well and will be in the pattern. I love the blueberry fabric!

This is one of the projects on my Q4 list for the Finish Along at The Littlest Thistle.
