Last year we had a weekend in February where the temperature was in the 60s so we enjoyed the day and went out and worked in the pavers in the garden. This picture of my husband working in the yard was from a post from February 2009.
This is my back yard now in February 2010. How different the weather can be from year to year!
So since working in the garden is out, (and I don't want to do housework), I'm chain piecing from the fabrics that I cut out the other day.
I'm making Flying Geese. Lots and lots of flying geese. This is one of the piles of geese for the exchange that I have going with some friends for our Buffalo Ridge quilts from the Nickel Quilts book.
And...wait, this is big...I've even given myself permission to throw away all of the leftover snipets (the potential half square triangles) from the corners that get cut off of the flying geese (for some reason I felt the need to save them at the beginning of this quilt). I'm working on that goal of Simplicity in 2010 and have come to the realization that even if I saved all of these, spent time figuring out how to store them, and was possibly able to find them in the future when I thought of them again...I will most likely not want to make anything with them anyway. Ahh, that felt good :)
Enjoy the day!
