What a week.......

Lots going on this week.  I can hardly keep up, honestly!  Robert, Dillon and Sara Ashley had a total of four basketball games, I had weaving, a quilting class and my Sew Crazy quilting group met, we celebrated Christi's birthday, visited my sister in Alabama, had lunch with a friend, Good News Club........and more.  Whew!!! I am ready for a few days at home.

Christi celebrated her 42nd birthday.......I can't believe it!!!!  Sometime last year she had seen the unfinished blocks for Tisket a Tasket and expressed a desire to own this quilt.  It was started several years ago when it was a free design from Bunnyhill, brought back out last year, and finally, finished just in time for her birthday this week!!! For birthday dinner it was chicken enchiladas and strawberry cake.

Also got the Spring Runner that was started last year quilted and bound.  And I am almost done with Sweet Pickins'.............just stitching down the binding.

And, although it is still winter here in Georgia, the daffodils are tempting us to think that it just isn't so.
This was the first one from our yard this week.

The doggies did get their haircuts last week and look so nice.  They do not, however, desire to pose for photos.  Why is it that other folks get such cute dog photos?????  Here are Roxie and Poppy in their usual positions.  Rascal went running at the sound of the camera snapping.  The chickens are more cooperative.

All for tonight.

Stubborn, sweet old dogs.
Fragrant, yellow daffodils.
Time spent with friends.
The tradition of family birthday celebrations.

Take care,


  1. Bunny Hill is wonderful. The rick rack handles for some of the baskets is a good idea. I think I made one basket from that set of patterns. You stuck with it and created a very, very nice birthday gift.

  2. took me long enough :-))
