Poppies & Peonies

We may at last be breaking out of our gloomy cold rainy cycle into something akin to spring, if not summer. Such a gorgeous warm day today that I spent quite a bit of it sitting on the porch reading, walking the bike trail, pulling a few weeds and sketching. Yes, still suffering from a bit of attention deficit. Should not be entertaining ideas for more quilts, but this one has been knocking around in my head for 2 years and knocking particularly loudly the last few weeks as the poppies and peonies inspiring the color scheme have come into bloom once again. The fabrics were set aside long ago, and the orange in particular is in short supply, so some experimenting with colored pencils rather than fabric seemed in order.

Forget the "shouldn't" and make that lovely quilt-you can see from my latest blog photos that I'm a poppy fan!
