|Taking advantage of the longer days.|
The garden has been calling my name and I love seeing what is in bloom.
|Passion vine growing in with the Bougainvillea|
|Clivia that are offspring from my father's.|
|I love this Iris' color. This is the first time I have seen it bloom.|
Although this bank belongs to my neighbor, I had to share a picture with you. It is ice plant and it blooms once a year. During that time it is positively breathtaking. The rest of the year it looks like dried up foliage.
We also have a new visitor to the bird feeder. This guy can climb right up that skinny pole to get to the food. Don't ask me how.
We've had birthdays to celebrate.
We've also enjoyed houseguests over the Easter weekend.
A rather gloomy day on Easter did not stop us from celebrating the special day.
|22 of the 23 grandchildren. One is away at college in FL.|
|Even the big kids had fun with the inflatables.|
|Gotta love duckings with Mohawk headgear!!!|
The mailman brought me a couple more "squishy packages" last week. Those are always such fun to receive.
Talin sent me a delightful little jewelry pouch "just because." She does such beautiful work and I always enjoy her posts. Thank you, Talin.
Joanne sent me a package that I won on her giveaway. The gravel was just delicious and the fabrics are so great. I know that I will put them to good use. I love the Aurafil threads!!!
In between all of the fun, I did manage to sneak a little sewing in too. Kate had sent me some pieced tops that she had done and wanted them to be donated. I finished them up and will take them to our guild meeting for them to be put to good homes. Thanks, Kate. They turned out beautifully. Check out her blog for some wonderful art quilts and postcards.
|Aren't the blues fun in this one?|
|I added the blue border to make this one a bit larger before quilting it.|
|My Spiderweb continues to grow.|
|Finished the top of the Modern Siggy quilt|
Some of my hours have been wasted waiting for car repairs. In those hours I lowered my winning percentage on Spider Solitaire. ;( Does anyone else love that game as much as I do?
The grandchildren have this week off of school for Easter break so we will have several of them each night through Sunday. It's always fun to enjoy some one on one/two time with them.
Here's hoping the next post won't be so long in coming.
