February, Cat Tree Success

After the Quiltfolk photoshoot excitement it seems I've just been content to watch the rain and foggy days creep by.  I did finish a small Hidden Nine Patch quilt that Linda and I had been working on  lately. She cut the pieces and sewed the blocks; I sashed and bordered; she quilted; and I added the binding. It will be donated through our guild, Pine Belt Quilters. 

The cat tree is getting more attention with a little exploring every day. It has become a good squirrel watching shelf. Elizabeth really fills up a shelf with no room to spare. 

My Southern Fiber Artists group met in Hattiesburg last weekend and we firmed up plans for our exhibit at the Columbus Arts Council gallery in Columbus, MS, during the month of April. We will have our Intense Color Project pieces on display along with other artwork we want to show. Julia Graber will speak at the opening night April 6, and Jackie Watkins will conduct a class on Saturday, April 15. 

I was surprised to find a few flowers on my walk today. Since our temps have ranged into the 70s some days, the azaleas are beginning to bloom. This large bush drops its blooms to make an interesting pathway. The Burford Holly bushes are full of red berries.
