My latest read

I have found a new series to read....hoping to find more in this series by Steve Berry at the annual used book sale held by our local Legal Services in about two weeks. Have any of you read any of these books in the series?  If you like Dan Brown, this is similar.

Templar Legacy


My favorite?

I Know I have said this about other projects. ....but isn't this great!   Lots of dog ears to trim and points to match up.  Totally worth it.

Feng shui and bees

Yard work time.  Getting a late start because winter just didn't want to quit.  Grass seems extra green and is growing like crazy.

I reshaped a flower bed to square it up.  A few years ago I made it curved using the Feng shui montra....I just can't do that anymore. 

And check out the size of these bees!  Ready for a break...perhaps a shower and some sewing.

Junk day

Our township has a "cleanup day" 2× a year.  You have to be able to transport your junk to them.  A good start to the spring clean.  This is stuff you can't normally take out with the trash.   I would love to dig through the piles before they finally dispose of it all.

I might actually take a few of my vacation days this year and do just that. ....after I finish my next quilt of course!    This is a pic of me waiting in line.  There will be a long line all day.

I have also included a few "before" pics of my spring yard.  I am anxious to be outside playing in the dirt

Happy pup

Gotta love him!  He had been destined to be a Seeing Eye guide dog...but his life took a detour and he is ours.  Labs are always so happy.

Wisdom teeth

This morning my son had his wisdom teeth removed.   He was quite comical when coming out of anesthesia.   I spent the day making mac and cheese and fetching drink and pain meds as needed.

TV time while he rested allowed me to pick up hexies for some work.

Back at it

I put this project down for a bit while gatherings more random 2.5 inch squares.  I also revised the center with a sunflower like look.  I have almost reached my goal size....although now I am having new thoughts about how yo finish.

And if course. ...how do I quilt this?
