What Season Is It?

Could someone please tell me why Winter has to steal time from the good seasons? The snow here was just about gone. I was actually able to get to my bird feeders out back. I had daffodils peeking up from the ground. And then yesterday, we got dumped on again! I'll spare you my complaining but I have so had my fill of snow!

To keep myself from climbing the walls, I pieced a ton of blocks on my treadle machine and then I stitched. This block is complete:

Button Block 8

I'll start on this one shortly:

Button Block 9

I have some pretty Victorian black glass buttons that I think will work on here nicely. I'll be stitching the seams in shades of purple.

For now, I'm off to cook some eggs. By the way, what is Easter doing in March?

I have to say that I am on the edge of my seat with this button quilt. I check my google reader everyday to see if you have posted another block and you never let me down. LOL I can't wait to see the end result. It is like a romantic movie watching it take shape and the colors coming to life.

I just read a long explanation of why Easter is in March this year, but it's more than anyone needs to know. Suffice it to say it won't be this early again for a long, long time!

Love that black block. The blocks for the button quilt are all so wonderful!

We just got photos of a snowman from our Chicago family....it has been a long winter there for sure!
I've heard that Easter won't be this early for something like 277 years...not to worry! Have a happy one!
