Yes, the only flowers we have are the ones indoors. We had a blizzard last week and now all that snow is gone. Tulips are coming up, but just the leaves so far.
This first picture is of a geranium that my Hubby got from one of the teachers he worked for last year. (He's a substitute teacher since we moved here and the taxes are so high we need help paying our bills.)
The above and one below are my Crown of Thorns blooming. The flowers are an intense red orange, but the sunshine bleached the color out on the pictures.
And you know this one... it blooms almost all the time. So I do have some cheery flowers - but not the spring flowers you all are showing. Heck, we still have snow in the forecast .. (You know weathermen like to be wrong.)
I know this is going to come as a shock to you all, but I've been working on a new quilt this week....
I've been wanting to make this quilt pattern for a while, and just had troubles deciding on the colors.
Here's what I've got so far.
80 blocks like these 8. Orange parts are 4.5" X 6.5" and the aqua print (that has a small orange element) is 6.5" X 1.5". Easy to cut, easy to sew.
Today as I read the Reader's Digest I came to a small article about the Thank You notes the Jimmy Fallon "writes" on his show. One of them was "Thank you, quilts, for being blankets made of other tiny blankets." Have I been doing it wrong? Lol
