Happy Monday - Presidents Day

Good Morning all...I had good intentions of blogging over the weekend, but between laundry and being the taxi driver, it just didn't happen...  I am almost finished with my sisters quilt, all I have left to do is the binding.  I also worked up a new wool applique, birds in a tree, I am into birds at the moment...I also played in the shop a few days, helping Lori rearrange everything, again : ), I have to say though it does look very nice, and Peter did a great job on the counter.  Anyway, here are my 5 thankfuls...
-  The wonderful warm weather we've been having
-  the best little helper ever, my Nathan
-  Lori, for continually inspiring me and encouraging me
-  my ex-niece (who I still love), got me a bagful of favorite things, and she was so thoughtful and kind
-  Does anyone have a relative they seldom see or talk too, who they wish they had more of a relationship with, well that is my brother Allen, I love him and miss him...

Almost forgot..  Natalie and Hannah have a new etsy shop of things they have made, called Hankering Leftovers...don't ask me, but check it out, they have some cute stuff.

  1. I LOVE THIS!!!
    Is this your own design? If so, will you offer it as a pattern? I adore birds. My grandfather was a birdwatcher and I have such fond memories of watching the birds with him...

    Blessings, Patti
