A Procrastinated Post

01_2017

It’s be a while since I’ve posted. I have a good excuse for that. I originally wanted to take a break over Christmas to give some thought of the direction wanted to take my blog. My plan was to do nothing but just think and work on the Wooly blocks, the ones from various Quilt Shops participating in the Wooly Block Adventure.

In the Garden…….

A few weeks ago, after some over night rain, I had a ton of birds in my yard. Most of them were hunting for the worms that come to the surface after a storm.

Instead of posting pictures of lovely flowers, I thought I would show you what happen last Thursday night.
