A Succesful Monday


I'm finally getting to those pictures I've been promising. I'll start with some garden stuff. These are a couple of the newest additions to my flower bed. I'm not much into the tropical plants most northerners die over when they move here, except orchids, which are much easier to grow than most think. I prefer to try unusual things, definitely flowers for color. Must be the quilter in me!
Possibly these flowers aren't new to you, but they aren't common here.
Obviously, the last one is of me introducing our grandaughter to flowers.

Yesterday's Expedition

Hi all
Yesterday, I went to a tag sale. The items for sale were from a quilter's studio. She died, on the young side, this past Fall. There were all sorts of bags of scraps, bundles of large yardage, kits in progress and not touched, books, get the idea--o yeah, 2 machines too.
I mention all this because we've chatted about how much we have, too much, will I ever use it all? you remember. Guess the point of this post is it made it more imperative to me to get at the stuff in my studio. I think next, I shall machine quilt some tops.
What will you be doing in your studio this week.

Just Checking In

Well Hello there!!
I've been reading and responding to your blogs, but haven't had an ounce of time to post myself. John's not been out of the house as much, even though the flu is over, and we keep very busy.
Our youngest was here with her family for a couple days to drop of the dog for sitting. We are the official puppy sitters. They are on their first vacation since the baby's birth. While they were here, we went to a hockey game, Panthers lost. Very bad season.
We had the privilege yesterday of working at the county's outreach center. First time we'd done that, and it was alot of fun. All the people involved on both sides were great. I didn't get to work in the kitchen since I had on flip flops, Florida's official footwear, so next time I'll enshroud the feet to I can work with food--actually it's the knives they are worried about.
We have had our first beach day of the year. My DH likes to go once a week, I just love being with nature.
How are your studios coming? I've taken pics of many things, thinking of you, I will get them posted.
Tell me what's going on in your studio.

Just a Note

Hi Everyone.
I still haven't been able to post as I'd like. My dear sweet hubby has had a virus that's going around, and he's been laying low for a week now. He's very much on the mend, but my time has been taken up. Things should be back to normal next week, and I'll share some things I've been making.
Want to wish all of you a Blessed Easter celebration.
