What a beautiful day today!!!! Have been working in the yard today! Got all the leaves mowed up and the flower beds cleaned out:) I have planted all my flowers.... silk so I don't have to worry about water rationing again this year. My annuals have their friend soaker hose by them so that is ready:) One of my Hydrangea are starting to get the little bundles of buds:) Now if it just won't freeze!

Hi Ya'll:)
My Texas is coming out today:) ha ha! Was a nice 80 degrees yesterday and we are heading there again today:) Of course it was only in the 50's in the middle of the week... just remember that old saying... If you don't like the weather just wait a bit and it'll change:) Well only in the winter season as when it gets hot it stays hot!
Oh by the way there are Bluebonnets on the sides of the roads:)
I got to get some quilting done this week between Dr appts and lunch with retreat group:) That's always fun! Not the Dr appt though:) She has finally learned to pick her battles with me... if I ain't gonna I ain't gonna:) Yup I am a bit stubborn at times:)
So onward with the pictures:)

First up and my favorite!!! Is Christine's Zig Zag quilt. Boy did I have fun quilting this one!!!!! I am SO needing to make me one!

She let me play and was VERY surprised how it looked when she picked it up:)
