Hope Springs Eternal

Every year Spring amazes me. How can it be that these branches that were bare and dead looking all winter are now busting forth with bits of color? It's a miracle of which I never tire.





Here's a quilt I made several years ago with the same name, Hope Springs Eternal. I had so much fun making this using some of my hand dyes, commercial fabrics and paper piecing. All pictures are clickable for a bigger view.

Norma,
looks like you have been very busy. Your new budding brances look wonderful. The hand dyes are gorgeous and I would love to see the portrait in person. It is fantastic! Such a unique piece.

I believe that piece or one just like it , hung at Houston. I remember it well and the picture doesn't do it justice. I do miss spring.... but our weather has finally turned absolutely gorgeous. Sue
