Spring is just around the corner..............
Here in Georgia you couldn't ask for any nicer weather.......in the 70s and 80s with plenty of sunshine. Of course, we will have some more cool days, but Spring is just around the corner. There are green shoots springing up all over our yard. It was even nice enough to sit on the porch yesterday after work and stitch on the binding of the Dick and Jane quilt that I started back in 2007. Hopefully I will finish it tonight..........it needs a gentle washing before I pass it on to DD#2, who has already asked for it. I expect it will become DGD's TV quilt. Seems appropriate for this daughter to have it, as she is an elementary school teacher. I made it on a whim......saw the kit all packaged up in a cute little lunchbox in the LQS and the nostalgia hit me dead in the face. I was in first grade all over again.
My pretty purple pansies and chives are beginning to perk up, and the johnny jump ups are filling in the planter. Hard to believe that in a couple of months the heat will overwhelm them. But, I do love their perky little faces, and it is always worth replanting them every year.
I have also made a little hairbow hanger and altered some valances for DGD's "Big Girl Room" this week. They are getting ready for a baby brother in June.
Hoping to get some stitching done over the w/e. Saturday will probably be a bust, as we are having a family fish fry at our house. Maybe Sunday afternoon and Monday........no plans for those days so far. I will keep my fingers crossed.
See you later................
