Burst of Color

Saturday I spotted these.

And decided it was time to make these.

Quinn's dolls were cold. So I made them this.

(That's Marine-Bear. My cousin Zach gave him to Jake when he entered the Marines seven years ago. Quinn thinks it's really funny that he has shoes on.)

I've never made quilted pillows or a doll quilt before. I found both to be very fulfilling to my instant-gratification-needy-side and a good way to get to know my new machine. They are also bringing a much-needed dose of color into my home.

The first flowering buds of spring and more hours of daylight are helping, but I'm hanging on by a thread waiting for complete liberation.

How are you getting through the last days of winter?
