Graduation is over (May 15) and within a week I sandwiched and quilted this top started in February 2013, then put on the binding and a label. It is to go to a wounded soldier through the Canadian Quilts of Valor program.

The weather is so  lovely now that I'm wanting to be outside, but the to-do list that piled up for the past 2 1/5 years is keeping me close to home. People keep asking "now what?" but I've not made any plans -- other than finishing some long neglected projects!

Sea foam and Snow

Now that my degree program is officially finished (graduation is May 15), I have more time to do some quilting. Here is a simple design made from my stash, now on the machine. The quilting will be done today. It is about 80" square and will likely go to Quilts of Valour. The quilting pattern is like ocean waves, so it is "Sea foam."

And this is what I woke up to yesterday morning. It snowed all day, but started to melt in the late afternoon, so now it is just very wet out there! We need the moisture. Today the sun is shining even though the temperature is chilly.
