In the crazy quilt of life, I'm glad you're in my block of friends.
We're getting into the warmer days!! Do you find getting out in the yard as rewarding as I do? This has been a long, cold Winter. I look forward to being outside as the days get warm! Tho' it takes me away from my sewing and quilting time, it's very uplifting to the human spirit. Maybe I'll take myself out on the patio and do some sewing! What a fun idea! At least until the air conditioner as to be on hug?
Have you been in any quilting shops lately and seen the changes in fabrics? it's turning to Spring every where! What fun!
May we take a bit of time and get out some UFO's that help us be uplifted and perhaps do I dare sy it? Even finish a project or two!
Now I thank those wonderful ladies in our group that helped with National Quilt Day at the Legacy Facility. WOW! We had a great time and even better, we made a little bit of money! Each year gets better!
Look to the things that help to make your heart soar! Happy quilting and gardening to each of you!! Sue Tubbs
