A Pretty Blooming Spring

No matter what you throw at it, 
Spring finds a way to add a little beauty to it.

A charred trunk gets a helping hand from an early wild flower 

One of the red buds gets helped along by one of our big bumbles.
I absolutely love these bees. They will fly right up to you,
hovering at head level, as if they are trying to determine 
what you are or what you are doing,  Once satisfied, off they go.
They will even move out of the way if I am weeding the flower bed
and then resume what they were doing once I have finished.

Others are not as patient but still have a job to do.

Wood sorrel blankets huge areas of the yard
along with dutchmen's breeches 

and wild phlox.

I'm not certain when I have seen so many May Apples either.

And red buds bursting with pinkish purple blooms bordering the woodland areas.

While all our storms and drenching rains have caused many difficulties
it has been a bonus for the plants.

A Surprise Comment!

I was so surprised to get a comment on my
Cats, Quilts and Wild Woodland Things blog.
I haven't updated this in a long time but
I think I need to get back to it, keeping
it separate from my other blog.

It made me realize that I don't have photos of
some of the finished projects so once again,
I will need to take inventory of what I still have.
I made this out of owl fabric for my daughter
(pictured on the left) who is crazy about owls. 

This table runner is made out of bee fabric.

My mircrowave bowl cover to protect my hands
or to nestle a nice cold bowl of ice cream in! 

The quilt I made for Mom.

One of the blocks in my BOM, still unfinished!

This is my Wickedly Red quilt that I keep on the bed.
It's an easy fat quarter pattern that you can
stack and wack and then mix up the pieces.

This is the center block of my BOM.

Mom's table runner.

Some silly Christmas fabric that is so pretty
and goes with the funky Santa!

This is Quilty, my winter snuggly quilt that I keep in the living room. 
It's a flurry charm pack with an uneven nine patch design.

I'll post more as I come across old photos and make new projects.
