It is a beautiful Sunday morning here in Florida. The birds are chirping and we have seen a few cardinals this past week. Have not seen them all winter so whether they go farther south and are heading north or here to stay is anyone's guess. We usually have a couple of pairs in our trees in Chicago and I just love seeing that flit of red flying by. My hubby is on a 2 day bass fishing tournament. He is in the bank division which means they do not go out in boats. It was very windy yesterday and he came home and had not caught one fish. Hopefully the wind has gone down and this is a new day. They do catch and release but weigh them first.




A lady asked on the list if anyone had used silk ties in their cq. Well I use them often and have made both a vest and a wallhanging with them. I am going to post a pic of the wallhanging and the vest if I can find a picture of it on here. Not sure if I have one.




Have a great day wherever you are. Just hope not in Colorado where they had an unbelievable amount of snow for April.

FredaB, lovely vest and wallhanging. I think I like the wallhanging best but love the way you used the labels in the vest. Both are really wonderful. Inspiring!

My other comment got cut off so I'll try again...I love the wall hanging! I live in Colorado. Yes we had a ton of snow Friday and Saturday but by Monday it was all gone and now it's 75 outside. I love it here!

Hi Freda,
I love your work with the ties! I have a bag full of ties that I've been buying at thrift shops for ages, and I have several ideas for using them in patchwork projects (even a book to help me - "Daddy's Ties") but now I just need the time!
