T is for Cardinal

The month of March has slipped away from me on the sewing front.  Lots of goings-on just not much that was sewing related! 

I did manage to finish the "T" block in Buttermilk Basin's free Wool applique BOM Let It Snow...

 I like how she chose to feature the girlie cardinal though I am not sure my wool choices are quite spot on.  I am trying to work from my wool stash and not buy specifically for this project leaving her a bit more orange than I might prefer.
 Here are the three blocks together...the LET in LET IT SNOW!

We are far from a snowy day today as it is sunny and to be 60 degrees F or so this afternoon.  I am not so far removed from that type of weather though as we drove through 1/2" to 3/4" hail on the way home from a family Easter gathering Sunday.

The trees and their buds continue to tell me to take heart, Spring is coming.

Have a happy day my friends!

Very cute. I think she is fabulous, and sometimes they are a little orangy.

They look wonderful together, Kris! I am in love with the wool pieces you are using. They are perfect for this project.

I'm so glad you squeezed in some sewing time to make this sweet looking block! We had some snow fall for about five minutes the other day. It's cold and windy, but the weather says it should be 80 degrees on Monday. Crazy!
