Just another dark wet winter morning

Another scrappy quilt in progress is giving me hassle.  I’m using strips of different widths which makes matching seams impossible.  The whole thing looks wonky to me, so I’m waiting for a miracle to occur when I start assembling the elements.  Meanwhile the erstwhile tidy workroom looks as though a bomb’s hit it

Just to remind us that spring is on the way, here are the swelling magnolia buds of our neighbour’s tree:magnolia buds

and here’s what it will look like in a few weeks:

    *helpfully* Try washing the fatter bits lots of times – maybe they’ll shrink!

    Funny how good things take their shape from apparently nothing, isn’t it?

    What I can see, I like very much. Not so much wonky as pleasingly random and informal. And so lovely not to *have* to match seams. I have an inkling of what you’re suffering weather-wise, except that ours is miserably hot instead of cold!

    Sorry you’re having such depressing weather up there Viv. As for the scrappy quilt – some people like wonky and actually aim for it.
