Spring Time

Today was one of our first nice spring days. So, I took advantage of the fresh air. I went for a walk and also done a little cleaning of some flower and herb beds.

My beautiful little crocus are blooming

One of my flower beds was full of leaves and some flowers needed cut back. I was also given some landscaping blocks . So, I put them were I wanted them.

This flower bed was also full of leaves, the birdbath was leaning too. This looks so much better.

The tulips seem short this year. But, soon they will be popping with color.

The garlic is up and looking pretty good too.

The tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, flowers, and herbs are doing good in the green house.

It was nice to walk around the yard and garden today. Breathing in the fresh spring air and seeing the plants waking up.

A House Warming Gift

We have gotten more snow here. About 9 more inches they say. All I know is there is piles every where. And, today, we are getting rain and freezing rain. And, by the week end it suppose to be in the 40's. So, I think I'll go to my studio and work on some more projects.

My cousin just got to move into her newly built house. I am so excited for her. She has a black, red, and white theme for her kitchen. So, I started looking through patterns. And I found this pattern;

the designer is Gina Gempesaw. I Love these magazines.

So, off to my stash I went. This is the table topper I made for her.

I'm going to do an all over quilting and bind it in red. I hope she likes it !!
