Couldn't Wait to Start!

               Friendship's Garden Quilt by Bird Brain Design

Here's my newest project.
It's a Bird Brain Design pattern that I ordered a week or so ago. I've been drooling over it for months and finally decided to splurge and buy the pattern.


I love all the little sayings on it!
I'm using the red, white and blue fabrics that I purchased a few weeks ago at our local quilt shop and I've decided to do the stitching all in red work. Now I've got something else to work on when I finish each months Promises and Borders BOM. **I know, I know! Like I really need another project to begin...but I so enjoy stitching by hand in the evening and I hate having idle hands.**

Our weather has been awesome the past few days with temps. in the 50's. We've been able to get out and take a few walks along the river which has been so nice after being cooped up in the house for what seems like forever due to cold weather and sick kids. As of tomorrow it's all supposed to change though. High winds, cold temps and SNOW. I don't think they are calling for much (1-2") so we'll just have to wait and see if we get it.
