Dornan’s Ice Cream

Dorman’s is open.  It probably opened May 1st.

I’ve never been by there that there wasn’t a line, and Monday in the POURING SHEETS OF RAIN was no exception.


That’s Megan Bruns (quilter, mathematician, emerging teacher, great friend) standing nearest to the car under the overhang.  God love her; she got us both an ice cream.  And, napkins.


Vanilla custard soft serve fragrant tasty deliciousness for me!  Megan got chocolate.

Hexie Quilt Center DONE

I started this project in mid-November 2015 and finished it yesterday, May 2, 2016.


The pattern is from Edyta Sitar’s HANDFULS OF SCRAPS book.  I used only fabric from my 2 1/2-inch strips and from the 2 1/2-inch square bin.

So, it is totally scrappy.

I went yesterday with Megan Bruns to get help from Rhea Butler at Alewives Quilting with picking out the borders, backing, and binding–all of which were due to a generous certificate from Bryan and Corinne Enright for my birthday this year.  Corinne likes this quilt, so her name will be put on it.  I may have to love on it a bit first…

Early Spring 2016

The trees are fringed with pale green leaves or with red maple buds:


The daffodils are glorious, despite their daunting weather ups and downs:


The little Siberian squill bulbs are so pretty this year:


Flowering shrubs have big fat bulbs and the Forsythia is in full bloom:


Perennials, like this peony, are emerging:



The grass needs mowing:


But it’s never really spring for me until the windchimes get brought out of the garage and hung:
