Frames for the large hexies at the centre of my Anna Levens quilt are on the agenda today. I've got three in the works and two of the three are now together, with the pink one to go.

At least I thought there were three. That was until I moved the pile and realized that I have prepped the small hexies for a fourth block. Talk about quilt amnesia!

Fabrics have been paired so I'm looking forward to basting at least one of them into place so that I can appliqué it to its backing.

It's a rainy, cold and miserable day (when is Spring supposed to arrive?) so I went to the freezer and dug out an apple pie to bake. It's the perfect antidote for cold and rainy weather.

I also decided it was also a good day for some Shrimp Risotto with Fresh Herb Butter - total comfort food. It's been a while since we've had this and it was delicious with steamed asparagus. I like this recipe because you don't have to stir it for an eternity.

Maybe I'll see if we can find highlights of the Ottawa Senators and Pittsburgh Penguins hockey games from last night - both teams are now up 2-0 in their series. Yaaaaaa - that's my boys! (I'm such a fair weather fan - only really get into it during the playoffs.).....M

Hi Maire, this one is moving right along. Such rich fabrics. I'm interested in your risotto. I tried to make it once and didn't have a lot of success. I must try it again and with shrimp would be delicious. Wet, rainy and gloomy...for day 2 here as well. The Sens are on a roll but don't want to jinx

I'm with Kathy, your post made me hungry for good food and for some good sewing time. Your hexies are gorgeous and you're moving right along.

Quilt amnesia--that is too funny! I can relate!!! That food looks soooo good!

Looks so delicious! You need to mark this post with a stained glass label.

These hexagons can be considered to place there, at least
