Shenandoah Valley Botanical month five - yellow pink tulip
Here's my block for February... looking a little asymmetrical. I am being fairly loosey goosey with the pattern.
Background color is more like it appears here:
I keep the plan posted at my ironing board:
Lots of beautiful examples being posted here on the linkup. Many quilters are doing hand applique which is just exquisite!
In other news, the weather has been wild around here and we've gotten some huge snow. Here are two cozy views of the house - the front-front as we call it (we don't use that front door - it probably hasn't been opened in 100 years):
and the "side" - which is another "front" actually:
The original house was built in the 1740's; about 10 years later, it was sold. The new owners likely dismantled their previous house and reassembled it as an attachment to the new structure - a common practice in the day. I love the orange (pumpkin colored) door but we mainly use the back kitchen door...
Now the snow is all but melted away....
