Spring has come into full swing here in the south. That’s means weeds ,and more weeds besides the mulching that needs to be done! I also forget from one spring to the next how achy muscles get after a winter. I also forget that I’m going to keep up with workouts so I don’t get sore….
Earlier in a post I posted a picture of a dormant flowerbed..
This was my flowerbed bed this morning.
Here are some flowers close up. The Amaryllises did really good this year.
Can you see that I still have some work that’s needs done?

This little fella seemed to enjoy watching what going on in the flowerbed.
I did get the rest of my blocks done on the nosegay blocks. I also got a little dress made for a friend . These little dresses are so fun to make.
Back to work… Have a great day! Deb
There’s so many things you can do with a machine and fabric, that I have a problem with keeping at one project at a time….
Here is the Fire hosta island top , I still have the one side to finishe up,I have all the difficult parts done.
Did this dress for my great niece. She was needing some school dresses. I finished up two for her.
This is a queen size top that I put together on my trip. It will be tied and given to a young couple that are to be married in April. They will be livening in Montana,so I will put heavier batting in it than what I would for hand quilting.
Once again the scrap box was fussing that it was sitting on the shelf for too long! These melons are fun to make, and before I knew it,I had made a stack of them. I really like doing the stitching around them. I had to make a starch out of Epsom salt to stiffen the bottom fabric for it wanted to ripple at the corners way too much. And I didn’t have enough regular starch..Works great, This is a 12.5 ” block.
Now back to sewing, Deb
