In New Hampshire spring is means maple sugar time. We still had snow when the word went out and I puzzled that one for a little while, but maple sugaring was in full swing. If you have never had maple syrup - you just don't know what you are missing. It takes a long time to make and a lot of love/labor go into the making, but it is well worth it.
I used my new machine for most of the quilt. Fused fabric into a scene, placed the sugar house, then proceeded to zig-zag and sew all kinds of branches, etc. This piece really took off!
It has been accepted in the League of NH Craftsmen's Fair at Mt. Sunapee this summer in Living With Craft, which is a juried sale venue. Let's hope it goes to a good home!
