I've really not done much other than prep some handwork and a little more crocheting. When I came home from work yesterday, I found this quilt I made many years ago draped over the back of our couch. The housekeeper had been in that morning and apparently knocked it off the wall and couldn't figure out how to hang it back up.It's a McKenna Ryan pattern and one of the first machine applique quilts I made. It has its flaws - like the tree on the far right that is hard to see, and the fact that the water is a little too bold, but being a fly-fisher - I really like it. I got to thinking as I was re-hanging it, that it needs a bit more embellishment. I stitched in the ditch as much as I could, but I think I'll add some quilting around the border and perhaps use some metallic or decorate threads to embellish the water and the trees. The fly hooked in the fish's mouth is one of my real fishing flies!
This time of year finds Mr. Squash and I pouring through the Spring fly fishing catalogs - Orivs, LL Bean, Cabelas and the latest fly fishing magazines making sure we have enough flies and gear for the coming season! We also like to read about possible new fishing locations and dream of warmer weather to come!
