60 + years later, 2019: it was sunny and warm today (in contrast to the record-setting snow on Palm Sunday). I got the peonies staked.
There are two patches of bloodroot (a wildflower) in the garden. The daffodils are in full bloom.

In the studio: I finished the fourth tote bag.
That means I've completed all five parts of my stated One Monthly Goal for April.
I was thinking about what to sew after the tote bags. I was also mindful of the tragic fire at Notre Dame Cathedral. One of the relics rescued was the crown of thorns. (Yes, I know it is probably not THE crown of thorns but it's been regarded as such for centuries.) Then I flipped to the April 17 page of Nancy Martin's perpetual calendar.
The block is also known as Single Wedding Ring (with a varation called Handy Andy) but Crown of Thorns was appropriate this week. I dipped into the box of 3.5" batik HSTs and started sewing.
The blocks are 15.5" unfinished. I figured out a pieced sashing. You'll need to tune in later this week to see how that turns out.
