The weather was beautiful this weekend. We went hiking one day. It was nice to get out and enjoy the warmer temperatures. It's hard to think back a month and remember the deep freeze that was the last half of February. We'll enjoy spring while it's here, it tends to warm up quickly here. The highs in the mid 70s pass all too quickly and summer has set in before you know it.
Even with the pretty weather, I did manage to spend some time in the sewing room. Most of my time this weekend was dedicated to some secret Easter Bunny sewing.
The Scientist in Training reads my blog occasionally so I can't show the entire project. This was my try out the pattern version. It worked out pretty well, so I'm going to proceed with my plan to make two more for the SIT's and roomie's Easter baskets. I'll let the SIT have the demo if she wants it.
The other stitching involved finishing border 2 for step 7 of Unity.

I'm happy with how Unity is coming together. The HSTs that make up the star points in the step 7 border blocks are my current leader and ender project. It's slow going, but progress has been steady, if not fast. Unity was started last April, unfortunately it's not going to get finished before it becomes a UFO (by my definition any project over a year old). That's OK, it should still get finished sometime this year.
