I've been MIA again...

Well,  spring is trying to spring around here, and I'm desperately trying to stay ahead of the yard work.
(Not easy on a little over an acre, I'm discovering)  It doesn't help that what was once beautiful beds have been neglected for at least 4 years......

The wisteria is beginning to bloom,  the lilacs are about finished,  our rhododendrons  are starting to bloom.

I've been trying to keep ahead of the swap blocks and quilt auntie blocks I've committed myself to, as well as the Round Robin activities I'm signed up for.

Not a lot of personal sewing happening at my house right now....  but I am trying to sit at the machine each evening , if only for an hour or so.....

Heading to the ORegon Coast with some girlfriends for the weekend,  an am taking some hand work with me.

  1. Denise ... nice to see you update! We used to have a huge wisteria which took over our yard and destroyed the roof of the garage and choked to death our big old apple tree. It was ever so sweet and beautiful when it bloomed, though. I miss it in the spring. My hubby, who finally won the war after years of battling to keep it in check, does not.

    I know what you mean about trying to stay ahead of the charity, quilty auntie blocks, round robin and other swap commitments. But I love my quilty home on the web and all my quilty pals too much to stop. Life is so much more fun with all of you! :-) Pat
