Happy April 1st.... otherwise known as April Fool's Day.  Well Cathy of Orange Sink drew me in just like they did to me when I worked.  Guess I'm a really gullible type personality.  That was fun Cathy.

This is my April quilt piece that was stitched in anticipation of the building of this house which was completed 1997.  At first I wasn't sure if these 12 month sections would make their way to a quilt of if I'd do individual finished squares for the sofa table.  As you can see they never made the quilt and this one didn't get finished either.  But it is still fun to pull out a new piece to celebrate the arrival of a new month.
There were 12 designs by Indygo Junction and some of the designs would even look cute hooked ~ which I've thought about.

No more hooking has been done on the Red Bird of Pennsylvania and I'm slowly wool yarn whipping the edge of the Big Dog Hollow.  I'd forgotten how laborious it is to whip with wool yarn.  So perhaps next time I finish a rug I'll do that wonderful wool covered cording again.  That makes such a lovely look and think it goes a whole lot faster too.

Have a great evening everyone, and please be kind to one another.... I think kindness just might be contagious.



  1. Saundra,
    Thank-you for taking the foolishness in stride on my blog today! We need all the fun we can get this time of year to get us through til Spring! LOL!
    Love the Rabbit piece! We have lots of works in progress here too and love displaying them!
    Good luck with the whipping!

  2. That rabbit would be great hooked!
    I've been a binding fool and only have one more rug to go. YIPPEE!
    Tomorrow is my Magdalena runner class. Have not had hook in hand for a week and I miss it.
    Hugs :)

  3. Hi Saundra,
