Binding, daffodils, and books

My daffodils are showing yellow. I don't know that they will open up for Easter, but it is a sign spring is here.

My Lenten roses are blooming too.
I sewed on the rest of the binding! Yeah! I was about a foot short of binding so I dug around in my scraps and found a piece of black Kona.

Tonight I will miter the corners.

I learned how to request books to purchase at the library and one of them arrived. The book about Welsh quilts was my request. The other was already at the library. I will be diving into these this weekend.

You are ahead of us in the spring department. I got some Lenten Roses starts from my sister in law last year but I don't see them coming up yet. I did clear the leaves from that flower bed since they were so thick there.

So you purchase the books through the library or you request that the library purchase the books and they purchase the books for patrons to borrow?

Whichever, they look like great books.

Thanks Patty for that tip about the library. I was just thinking about a book
I'd like to read, but I don't have room to keep all the books I want to read.
Yes, get the library to order them!
Those two books are a good starting place.
