A project I am trying to finish. [photographed in the early morning light on our back porch]

This quilt of hand appliqued blocks is called "Through Grandmother's Window". When I started it, I wasn't even a grandmother! Now I am working on the hand appliqued outer border of a vine with buds. It uses wonderful batik and hand-dyed fabrics as well as commercial fabrics. I am hoping to have it ready to hand quilt before too long. Like many quilters, I have several of these "UFO's" (unfinished objects) in boxes which I do plan to complete!

Before I can work on this today, I have plans to celebrate St. Patrick's day with a corned beef dinner and a pint of Guinness. I think my brother and his wife will be joining us! And before that, off to work!
