I'm Woefully Behind...

not in my quilting projects, in my postings!  I've been busy, despite the winter weather. In addition to working on my Scrap Addicts projects and the raffle quilt, there were some events which took me away from my sewing machine.

The concert chorale that I sing with performed two concerts of Johannes Brahms' Ein Deutsch Requiem at the beginning of the month, so that required a lot of practicing. Last weekend, I went with my husband on a buisness trip to Maryland and Delaware, where I caught up with some old friends and made some new ones. Then I spent a couple days with my dad when he had cataract surgery.  I also started my spring cleaning. 

Did I say SPRING?  Yep, Spring is finally starting to show up here in SW PA!  It has been a loooong, loooong winter!  Today, I saw the first crocus. I normally see crocuses on my front bank in February, but not this year. The front bank was covered with snow up until just a few days ago.  Here is the picture I took of that lonely little crocus that is finally popping up.

Here is what my front bank usually looks like in the middle of March:
That picture was taken on March 24, 2012.  Here is what the same spot on my front bank looks like today:

Needless to say, it's going to be at least a few weeks before I see those jonquils in bloom!
