It's starting to look like spring

The trees have started sprouting leaves this week and when I looked out this afternoon it finally looked like spring.

I haven't accomplished much today but did get an off center 4 patch backing made for my Chinese Coins quilt which I hope to get loaded later tonight.


There's been a lot of discussion on Stashbuster about books. I use the bottom shelves in my bedroom studio for the bulk of mine but there are stacks in the den where I have my sewing machine and computer, stacks in the living room, and stacks in the bedroom too.

I've also been folding fabric again - I made a start when I moved in but only got a few shelves done. I tore the blues apart looking for a binding for a HeartStrings quilt and those 3 shelves are the messiest right now.

I like your shelves, are they from Ikea? Are those bins or doors that I see on certain shelves?

Ah, books everywhere! I love it. That's my idea of decorating. =) Beautiful view from your window, too. Won't be long before all the trees are in full leaf.

Just noticed your banner is now of your bookshelf and Chesty! Looks like a great area to browse books and fabric :)

Love the buildings outside tyour balcony. Condos? They look fabulous and is that a pool in between the buildings? Chesty looks like he wants to play!

The quilts in your photos are so impressive that I return to them again and again. They are so crisp looking, cheerful, and lively with wonderful juxtaposition of fabrics. I've saved and/or printed many of them for future ideas. Thanks for sharing!
