Happy Quilting! – National Quilting Day

Today is the National Quilting Day in the United States. Every third Saturday in March the National Quilting Day celebrates fabulous quilts and those who make them.

Today is a day to recognize and appreciate the quiltmakers, the skill and the warm and the results. If you are a quiltmaker, spend a minute to recognize and appreciate that you have truely been blessed with a special skill. If you are not a quiltmaker, wrap yourself into a quilt and enjoy the warmth. (

In Hungary I am celebrating today with making a crochet needle case holder roll with a suitable coaster and making a new treasury with my favorite quilts. :) And you?

Happy Monday Moodboard – Springtime Flowers

Around here Spring arrives really slowly, every sunny day is followed by one that is quite cloudy and cold. Crocuses already crawled outside in our garden, but they are shivering as well.

I miss sunlight and the flowers a lot already which can be seen that when I’m sewing I usually start with the cheerful flower patterned fabrics first and somehow the sunny spring flowers come first in my treasuries as well.

So let this Monday Moodboard be like this as well, even if this day was vastly covered by clouds in the sky, let’s be cheerful!

You can check out all the other Monday moodboards at Star of the East's Blog.

And here is my happy Spring coaster set, just like the sun is shining right now!

As an addition my treasury of the day. The title will not surprise anyone I guess: Springtime Flowers.
