End of February.

Last day of February and so far it has been a very busy first two months of the year.  We have had seven swimming events since the start of the year and there is an event every weekend until the end of March so March is going to be busy.  Of course I can get some more quilting done.

Quilting you say?  Yes I actually got some done.  I have been making the backing for Eldest’s quilt, I have the right amount of material just not in the right way so I have had to cut and sew pieces together.  So far I have seven pieces made and quite a few more to do and then sew them together to make the backing.  I am also hoping to get the November due quilt done this weekend as well.  Then it is the two Memory quilts which need to be done by July!!  Hopefully after that I will be able to get some Christmas gifts done and a couple of quilts which I want to make for me!!!!!!

We had a few nice days of sun over the weekend but then it has been raining again today. March can be nice but then it can also be dreadful weather, will it come in like a Lamb or a Lion this year?  Occasionally you get a clear, but very windy day which is great to get things out on the line as they dry quickly!!!  We can always hope!

The North wind doth blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?

He’ll sit in a barn,
And keep himself warm,
And hide his head under his wing, poor thing.

The above is actually the rhyme but we always said “March winds doth blow” so when and how did that get changed?  Probably my Welsh Grandmother, the one who taught me to sew.  She had a whole collection of sayings and superstitions and would regularly tell me about them.  “Beware the Ides of March” being March 15th when Julius Caesar was murdered in the Roman Senate in 44 BC It is supposed to be bad luck, well it was for him. 

Tomorrow is Pancake Day and I will be making mixture for our lot.  They usually have a lighter dinner as they just love pancakes.  DH prefers just sugar and orange juice, Youngest likes chocolate spread on his (yuck) and Eldest and I prefer maple syrup, Treacle just likes the pancake!!!!  Wednesday of course is Ash Wednesday and then Lent.  40 Days of giving things up until Easter.  Is there anything you will be giving up for Lent?  Or trying to do something for the 40 Days?  I have a few things which I am going to try!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great week to come. 

Hugs & Love, Susie & Treacle xxHere are some Spring Flowers!!!!

    February certainly held lots of nasty surprises…in all sorts of ways!! Interesting that the 1920’s were called the Roaring Twenties. What will they call the 2020’s? They have had an auspicious beginning! Two years of pandemic, and now the insanity of what Russia is doing! Love your flowers…always so beautiful!
