At least that's what I'm hoping. We are beginning to see some of the early bloomers showing off out in the back yard. It is so nice to see some color showing up out there!
The center photo on the bottom is one of our lemons and some of our eggs in a wire basket. I wrapped each lemon that I wanted to save from our tree individually in newspaper and packed them carefully in a cooler with newspaper between the layers, and surprisingly most of them survived for about two and a half months. There are still a couple dozen waiting to be used. Treasure!
Ruthie's parakeet, Pete, is mighty happy to be getting to spend time out on the patio again. He does so love gossiping with the outdoor birds. It is really funny hearing them chatter back and forth. There is a bird feeder just outside the patio and that attracts lots of visitors for him.
And... I have all the rows sewn on this one. Now I'm adding the setting triangles and sewing the rows together. It's going to be a big one, so it's taking longer than usual. It's been a fun one to make and I think will be a striking finished quilt. We'll see!
We had really warm temperatures here all week, but it's back to being a little cooler now. Not bad at all and certainly nothing like the cold a lot of you have had to endure this year. Our younger daughter in New York State has had quite enough of winter by now, and I don't blame her a bit. I'm thankful to live here where it does not get so cold. We won't talk about how hot it gets. ;)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and kisses,
