I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

I am working on finishing the back of my Pansies Tabletopper and will be bordering it with RSC13 greens! I used my Go! Baby cutter to cut all those greens and more purple pansies to finish up the back. 

The green row is the outside border and all the purple pansies will inhabit the inner sections--

One side of this small project contains 360 hexagons!! So, this side will add another 360--yowsers!!  720 (right??) and also 360 little batting hexagons ---hmmmm--I really am using that hexie die to death!! 
I plan to quilt it by machine (deep breath....a first for me!!)

There is a little peek up there at my next project--which will have to remain a secret...for now. Nothing like my usual work--very modern looking!  

And here are some little bits and pieces in a log-cabin-style setting that I fooled around with a bit--just for fun...

my greens are disappearing....

and so is April...soon the Merry Month of May will be dancin' in...I wonder what color will be next????

Thom and I walked on the river today and saw ducks, hawks and ospreys...just lovely...but the wind off the water is still C O L D!

Have a spectacularly wonderful weekend..
