USO Delivery Today

I'm making delivery to the local USO lounge today and I almost forgot one of the quilts! Sandy brought this one over that she finished a while back. Isn't it pretty! She is really good at putting together those string blocks. I love the colorful, happy fabrics. I'm sure it will be enjoyed!
Here is a little collage of the ones that will be going today. As always, if you click on the picture, it will enlarge. I am so thankful we can do this to be a blessing to our soldiers and also to the sweet staff there at the USO Lounge at the airport.

SO many pretty things going on outside! I do love this time of year. I got a lot of weeding done yesterday, but there is still plenty to keep me busy for a long time.

More of the Winding Ways have been completed, but this is another of those projects that will take a while. Can you see the circles? This is far from the finished layout, but I love that you can already see that secondary pattern. To me, it is just fun! And I do like fun.

Our sweet baby girl Mary is planning a trip to visit in June with her fella! We can't wait to meet him. So thankful for our family. They are the best!

I hope you are happy and full of joy there in your world. You know, it's a choice lots of the time, and remember - the joy of the Lord is your strength!

Hugs and kisses,

That is a wonderful collection ready for delivery. It is great to see them all together like that.
And great progress on the Winding Ways. Love all the patterns this block creates.
Your garden is looking so healthy and productive. It is obviously enjoying Spring.

Such a nice posting, so much going on. I envy your yard, nothing wants to grow in the soil here. I'll be planting some flower pots for color. The quilts are beautiful, wish I could go to the USO with you ladies. A heads up..... I finally mailed the fabric package. It should arrive early next week.
