Peter's quilt is close to finish. I have the binding left to finish up. This quilt was originally planned smallish lap quilt, but I made it bigger. It is always a challenge to machine quilt a larger quilt, but I love the speed that went on it. The quilting pattern is simple large puzzle pattern since I didn't think the loops would fit Peter well.  Today would the time to look for the right biding for it; i am thinking yellows. 

Each week, I spend a little time on the log cabin quilt. It is coming pretty close to the end of hand-quilting, but whenever I lay it flat and check on the quilting I always found something is missing. Sadly, I won't have it finish by March, but April is my goal to finish all 4 quilts that's unfinished. 

Sometimes, there are projects get left out focus as I move to new projects. The stamp quilt is not in any progress for a long time.  It will put away soon and start again when we get settle.  I love how the randomness of the colors that match together. Maybe it will take another few years to have this quilt ready. I still plan on adding more fabric to the stamp box where I keep all the pieces together. 

The mornings start get so  much nicer here. I heard the birds sang this morning and yesterday as well. The sun lite up the room earlier and I was able to capture it as I sit in the room. S has asked me this morning, when is spring coming? I told her, Spring is here, but spring is a bit shy to show up...  She is ready for a little spring break somewhere... yes, she helped to plan out our mini get away.. when to wake up, when to leave home, when to eat, where to eat, how much time I can spend in the fabric store...  yes.. and a big note to mama{ check the stove before we leave}. 

{Summerish} dishes has be requested lately. Lots fruits and just homemade burgers. We were able to find some spring veggies available in the store. Hope we'll be able to have some sweet corns in the cob soon.
