If only I could say that there is something complete. But alas, there is not. I had hope with this little half square triangle quilt top, but somehow I managed to measure the border incorrectly, so after some ripping I am ready to make another run at it.
Isn't it funny? I had a totally different two border fabrics in mind, ironed and ready to cut, but then, they just weren't right. I think these two are. Now, if I can just get it all sewn together it might actually get finished!
On a much more positive note, my good friend Deb (AKA Wonky Girl) sent me these three very pretty pieces of fabric. Thank you Deb! You are a blessing to me, and to whomever gets the quilts where these fabrics eventually go to live. It will be fun for me to find the perfect project for these happy fabrics!
So, what, you may ask, is it that has kept me busy? Working in the yard, which is slowly but surely coming back under control, and cleaning the garage. Where does all that STUFF come from??? We had to get the garage cleaned, because this week there will be a delivery of some little feathered creatures. I know I said no more chickens, but ...... I want more, and Mr. Muddling delights to give me what I want! Got to love him! And I do.
Our neighbors gave us this little kiddie pool and Mr. Muddling built a wire enclosure for it.
Now there is sheeting draped around it to keep it warm and cosy and a light for warmth. We have the food and water dispensers ready to fill when they get here.
I. AM. SO. EXCITED!!! I can hardly wait.
Meanwhile, there are lots of really pretty things blooming and growing and producing. The picture should enlarge when you click on it. At the very bottom, second from the right you may be able to see the orchid blooms. I can hardly believe it, but almost two months later - they are still holding on to those beautiful flowers.
I'm giving a try to putting some of the outside flowers, annuals, in pots this year so I can move them around. I am really loving looking out this office window and seeing all those flowers in bloom!
I hope you are happy and healthy and living in joyful expectation of more good things to come!
Hugs and kisses,
