My Spring Flowers

Yes, the only flowers we have are the ones indoors.  We had a blizzard last week and now all that snow is gone. Tulips are coming up, but just the leaves so far.
This first picture is of a geranium that my Hubby got from one of the teachers he worked for last year. (He's a substitute teacher since we moved here and the taxes are so high we need help paying our bills.)

 The above and one below are my Crown of Thorns blooming. The flowers are an intense red orange, but the sunshine bleached the color out on the pictures.

And you know this one... it blooms almost all the time.  So I do have some cheery flowers - but not the spring flowers you all are showing. Heck, we still have snow in the forecast .. (You know weathermen like to be wrong.)

Happy Monday!

Hubby Said

He said I should share this with you.

I like how this one is turning out. I love the scalding bright colors.  We have a lot of white all around - this warms up the territory a bit.

Started a New One

I know this is going to come as a shock to you all, but I've been working on a new quilt this week....
I've been wanting to make this quilt pattern for a while, and just had troubles deciding on the colors.
Here's what I've got so far.

80 blocks like these 8.  Orange parts are 4.5" X  6.5" and the aqua print (that has a small orange element) is 6.5" X  1.5". Easy to cut, easy to sew.

Now on to the design wall.....

Happy Weekend, my Pretties.

It's a Flimsy!

Just finished the flimsy this afternoon...

\It's 11 sqs  x  13, each square is 4"  Now for batting and backing.  I have some batting from my Sister and some backing from my  friend, Paulette.  A group effort.  It takes a village.

Happy Tuesday,
