Design Wall Monday - 3/9/15

It was another busy weekend!!

Finished another half/setting rosette! It might be one of my favorites so far.
Started another full size - I've redesigned it a little and it's hard to tell in the photo but I used a stripe in the 2nd row.
Friday night was Hexie Club and Saturday I taught the second half of a quilting 101 class. Sunday morning, of course, was the day we Fall Back but we also had a rescue call shortly after the clocks were changed - wanna talk about confusing!! I had absolutely no idea what time it was. I really do despise the changing of the clocks... And I never got back to bed. It was a slowwwww Sunday.

The rest of Sunday was pretty much spent on prepping a class sample for an upcoming Seminole Piecing class and going to Cartwright's Maple Tree Inn with the family. CMPT is a sure sign that spring is coming - it's only open 2 months of the year. It's still just a tad early for the sap to be running but it's always a treat to get buckwheat pancakes and local maple syrup. Later this month will be two NY Maple Weekends. Of the 54 participating maple producers from around the state, 19 are in my county!!

The other signs of spring? 1. My cardinals have returned and were singing up a storm this morning. 2. The great wanderer (who wanted in and out ALL day yesterday - I need a revolving door!) didn't come back home before I left for work this morning. I'm sure he's having a ball!
I see it, Momma, I see it!! Spring is almost to the neighbors house at the corner!!

We have a couple of Maple Festivals coming up in this area, too. Think it's a bit early but like you said - homemade pancakes and homemade syrup is a yummo!!

There is nothing better than maple syrup. The best I ever had was made over a wood fire so it had a lovely smokey flavour. It was delicious!

Spring is on its way but we have a lot of snow that has to melt before it finally arrives!

Forgot to say I love your VP blocks! Blue and gold is such a dynamic colour combination (one of my favourites)!

I am loving the fabrics in your Seminole Patchwork!
The pancakes and syrup sound yummy!

I think there's a song written for Z . . .
"They call me the wanderer
Yeah, the wanderer
I roam around, around, around"
