In Like a Lion . . .

There's a saying about March:  It comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.  Well, I can't say our March here in the Sacramento area came in like a lion--in fact, it's been pretty nice out with temperatures around the low 70s for our highs.  I think the only thing ferocious and wild around here in the past few days was probably my spending at the quilt show!  But I guess when I thought about the saying, I was mostly thinking about the "lamb" part, because I finished the March sheep blanket today:


I like the more spring-like colors in this one--it perfectly matches the feel of the Easter decorations around my home.  This is the third blanket I've made now:  January was the cabin, and February was the blackbird with the heart.


I decided to sew buttons to the sheep's back and add ribbons to the blankets; that way, I can just tie the blanket to the buttons, and it's worked out pretty well.

What's next on my project agenda?  Good question.  I've sat in the Sweat Shop all evening looking at the different projects I WANT to make, but I was unable to decide which one to start next.  Most of them are Easter-themed projects.  How about you?  Are you working on anything for Easter?

Kim, love your sheep and it's blankets. I'm not making anything for spring but I did find a cute rabbit at the thrift store. I'm still having fun with rug hooking so my other projects are on the back burner.

For a better outcome, try waiting until after March 17th to decide what project to start on. (a suggestion from your friendly quilter/astrologer!)
