One of the reasons that I love this time of year so much is that there is more time for handiwork projects. With the days still being short my evenings have been filled with releasing my need to bake, spin, quilt, and knit. I am trying to do as much as possible because spring is near and once all the work starts with moving everything to pasture, starting the garden, sorting cows, pulling broiler pens, and so much more, I know that I won’t have much time to sit and work on these kind of projects anymore.
So, I thought that I would share with you my quilt that I am so close to finishing. I started it September 2010. I did quite a bit over that winter and then didn’t work on it much this past summer. It is my first big hand quilting project and I started it knowing that it was going to take long time to complete, but I enjoy it and wanted to make something special.
What kind of projects do you do in the winter time? I would love to hear about them!
