The little plum trees in the back yard have covered their branches with promises of tart juicy plums later in the season.
The peach tree outside my sewing room window has peaches for the first time. I hope, I hope, I hope they thrive and grow!
All sorts of little bits and pieces are bursting into bloom out there. Spring is here!
Meanwhile, it looks like the girls may have been trying to tunnel out of the chicken yard.
"Web of lies!"
But, since my minions have been doing a pretty good job of cleaning up the garden, we won't look too far into the attempted escape.
This is from last weekend, a great little steakhouse the desk lady at our motel told us about. She said it was the best in the area and I think she was right...
I didn't get a picture of the outside when we were there on Saturday since it was raining and dark, so we went back the next day, because of course I had to show you. They had men there working of the door, but you can see that the building dates back quite a few years. It's in the little town of Winchester, Texas, and the Post Office is in the front of the restaurant.
I especially like this sign posted on the wall.
I finished the latest tumbler quilt. All it needs is a label and we're done. Hopefully I'll get it delivered next week. The backing fabric is an all-over print of these brilliant tiles. I used this Phillip Jacobs shell montage fabric for the border.
The light is not good outside today. Sorry I could not get a better picture. This quilt is for an 80-something-year-old friend of ours. She became a widow over three years ago. We've known her and her husband for a lot of years and she has always been an inspiration to me. She's one of the strongest women I know, while still always giving honor and deference to her husband. She has three children, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren! I sewed all their names into the quilt.
It's cooler here today and sort of gloomy, but there's always plenty of pretty fabric here in the sewing room to brighten the day!
Hugs and kisses,
