Spring has sprung! Just look at my one and only azalea bush!
Just three days before I took this picture I only saw a pink bud here and another one over there.
It looks like two different shades of pink... I used to have two bushes, I think they must have cross-pollinated before the other one died.
I think the spring cleaning bug must have bit me for sure! Remember the swap blocks I was working on in December 2010 for our April 2011 Scrapbag retreat in Deep Creek? Directly after the retreat I even started laying out the blocks I received. Now I want to get these together and out of the way... here's one layout:
I was debating whether to use sashing strips or not... I think I'll go with the sashing, they seem to call for something. Probably deep blue or gold will do (sorry LizA and Marei, no red this time!!)
More progress on my b&w strip twist, I'm going to like this one A LOT!
These straight strips work nicely as a leader-ender project. And yes LizA... I plan to put a teeny red border on this one - shhhhh - I was keeping it a secret! ;o)
And now it's time for breffus - have a great day everyone, sew forth and sew on!
