Spring is coming. It has to. It's a law or something. It may get here by June.
Flowers are peeping out in the flowerbeds, and trying to crawl back into the dirt -
I think these may be more crocuses, there are white ones as well. Mind you, I didn't plant any of them - it's always a happy surprise to see what's there. Especially since it's snowing AGAIN.
There has been some planting going on inside, though, my poor African Violets were in tiny pots and feeling the pinch. They have new homes.
I had such a mess on my cutting table!! My best friend Cathy had given me an Oriental Lily grow kit - isn't it cute?
You plant the bulb right in the watering can!! So cute! She got one for mom too! I hope it grows, that will brighten things up.
There has been little stitching going on - I've been reading a lot, huddled under quilts with the heating pad. My poor fingers are too cold to stitch much, but I do have some things ready for quilting, I'll be tackling those later in the week. And look what just came in the mail -
Flowers of Provence, by Holly Hill Quilt Designs, for Henry Glass. I adore this fabric - look for some patriotic quilts coming soon! I ordered for the first time from Bear Creek Quilting Company, online, and they were wonderful - even sent a free quilt pattern!
Today I had to take mum to the dentist, then we came back to my house for a quick bite of lunch. Grocery shopping was next, so mum had to make a list, and check it twice...
Tomorrow she goes to the eye doctor, hopefully he will take her off the $100/bottle eye drops. They're not doing a doggone thing for her except lighten her wallet.
It's dinnertime so I'm going to go heat up some chili, and huddle on the couch with the heating pad. I'm wearing four layers and still freezing. I'll leave you with a pic of Karen's gorgeous Grace block from the Garden of Contentment quilt - love it so much!!!
See you soon!
