When spring hits at my house two things happen. First I go on a quilt retreat with my guild. Four days. Yes...four days of sewing from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. We could sew all night if any of us could last that long but I long since learned that doesn't work for me so about 8 my roomies and I go back to the dorm, shower, put on our pajamas, read a minute and turn out the lights. We have so much fun it's just like high school days when you had a sleepover. I got two quilt tops, one purse and one tote made. One of the tops is going to have wool flowers appliqued on it so it will be a while before you see it but the other I'll show you soon.
The second thing that happens is that everything in the yard starts growing and all the beds need cleaning and potted things need repotting. I hate that kind of stuff because usually my allergies kill me when I do it but I'm well into allergy shots so after working outside since last Thursday at noon I'm happy to report I'm not sneezing or anything. :) Because of the terrible hot, dry summer we had here last year we'll be a long time in the yard but we've made a start! One of the things we did was to cut the Rosemary way, way back. It was trying to take over one of my beds by the deck. I brought in some of it and put it in a vase because I love the way it smells. Can you keep it a while in the house...I wonder. I've never tried.
And just before I left for the retreat I made a quick little bib that I saw on a friend's blog. Don't you just love this? :)
