WOW: Tulips for Easter

  WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays  
Remember these beauties? They're my table runners, Tulip Delight. The pink one on top was a gift I gave away and the one I kept was the green and purple. With a pansy wreath on the door, I've decided to go all tulips for my inside decor this Easter. 

I love this time of year and it's opportunity to pause, reflect and reset. Spring is the natural New Year of the seasons and it's always felt like the 'true' New Year as far as I'm concerned: my designs, family ebb and flow all seem to start something new at this time of year. I have lots of projects and ideas I'm considering and can't wait to get stuck into new and exciting things this 'New Year'. 

Today, I'm digging out this table runner; I actually can't remember where I stashed it. So I'm hoping that it will appear with the Easter Dinner Plates and decorations. I also have all the usual errands - and I'm having several quilts washed over at my local dry cleaner. 

After years of searching, I've found a good little shop that actually washes my large quilts beautifully in a huge machine. I started with a few early quilts I wasn't worried about and even tested the service with some batik heavy quilts. I warned the cleaner about color bleeding, but it turned out fine. In fact, better than fine. Washing quilts can be such a chore; especially some of the large ones I've made. And I've resisted the chemical washes of cleaners in the past, worried about degradation, but this new system is completely wool safe and doesn't effect the dyes or stitching of my quilts. I'm excited to get my stash re-freshed. I do use most of my quilts - including the stencil ones, and I like to wash them yearly.

So that's my WIP today, getting my house in order.
