Sapping Season

Hubby's sap evaporator
The maple sap is running somewhat. It has gotten colder again so it has stopped for now. We have some to boil what ran on the weekend. What does all this mean...I am not getting much sewing done!

I had a couple of finishes this week. My tumbler quilt is DONE!!!! I also got the borders on my Metro Rings it is ready for pin basting and some machine quilting. I also want to do some hand quilting on this one.It is also my last UFO that I signed up to finish this year at guild.It and the snowman quilt on the frame are my last two. That will make five quilts finished since October once they are done, not bad!!

My friend was here for a visit and took another of my quilts home with her to long arm. In the near future she has offered to finish a couple more of mine for me!! It will be nice to get those tops done and out of the UFO pile that is growing in my sewing room. Thanks Susan!!!

I am also checking in with my friend Kathy. Although a day late, it is still nice seeing what everyone is working on these


  1. I do like your tumbler layout version .... so different!

  2. Your sap boiling photo brought back tons of great childhood memories - spring is such a wonderful time of the year, particularly when you get to enjoy that delightful sweet treat.
