You are My Sunshine – March 23

Advertisements:

It's the start of another week. I hope you had a great weekend and were able to sew all day long on Saturday to celebrate worldwide quilting day. I sure saw lots of posts on Facebook of quilts being made, stitch alongs taking place and just everyone have a pretty good time while we continue to hunker down at home.

Michigan now has a a stay at home order and my husband's company has closed. He won't be working for the next 3 weeks. I sure hope all these measures of mitigation do the trick or it might be a long summer.

I included this little fox in today's newsletter. It seemed especially appropriate after trying to order groceries over the last few days. It took two days to get a delivery date and then when they were shopping, there were more things they were out of than I can even remember not to mention no toilet paper or paper towel. I didn't hoard anything sooooooooo it'll be interesting to see if I'm able to order either of those things on my order at the end of the week. We'll be out of both by then. 

This was the view out my window this morning. I think it was winter's last hurrah, at least that's my hope. Thankfully it's all melted now. I printed Easter eggs and rainbows for the front windows after lunch today. The neighborhood is putting them in the front windows like we did shamrocks last week so when parents take their children for a walk they can count them as they go along. Kind of a treasure hunt and a way to practice counting too. 

These two silly gooses have been wrestling while I've been working. Don't you love Gracie's stink eye look when I asked them to stop for a minute to get a picture. They are loving all this together time.

The Giant Dahlia Quilt - FREE PATTERN

This is today's free pattern. It's a wonderful Giant Dahlia design from the 1930s. It was originally published by Home Art Studio in the 1930s and finished at 84 x 84 inches. I've always wanted to make one, even if I have to hand piece it. I hope you'll add this to your library. You can always print the pattern at 50% and just make a wall quilt.

I'll be back soon with another ray of sunshine. Don't forget to use the coupon code: SUNSHINE in the online store for free shipping.

    Have you ever wondered what to do with all the socks without mates in the laundry? They would make great reusable toilet paper. You just don’t have to tell anyone about it. That and do laundry every day. What did our grandparents ever do before toilet paper was invented?
