It's About Time

It's about time I out something quilty done here! Though it seemed like a small task at the time, making sixty blocks and signing them took a little longer than I anticipated. But now that they are all complete, I'm anxious to get them in the mail to Connie. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the blocks that I get back. Hopefully, mine will pass inspection because I know that there many gals in the swap that do much more quilting than I do. Not all of my blocks are made from the same fabrics as I just used leftovers from two or three different projects. And I got something else completed too! This is just a hint. I promise a full photo later this week.
I am so very ready for Spring. My thoughts are with some of our friends and family that live back in Kansas. Probably some of them are dealing with the recent late season snow and are thinking it's about time for Spring too. Today was cold, wet and windy but last week was pretty nice. One day Beamer was watching and chattering to the birds flying across the deck. I looked out and saw this pretty bluebird (I really don't know my birds - I just know it was blue) flittering from tree to tree. As it perched in my neighbor's little tree I was able to zoom in with my camera and get this photo. I don't think the nest belongs to her but I'm going to keep an eye on it anyway. Just a nice reminder to stop and enjoy some of the little things in life, even it is just a pretty bird passing through.


HAPPY SPRING BLUEBIRDS TO YOU !

Can't wait to see your blocks when they arrive. Luckily my friend from here who is in the swap too is coming over to help me sort when they all arrive. Pretty bluebird!

Boy, no kidding they're taking longer! I only got 20 done this weekend -- good thing I didn't wait until next weekend to start! Love that bluebird picture -- I'm always looking for bluebirds, but I'm never lucky enough to see one.
