It is said that April showers bring May flowers, so it would only be right to assume that March floods bring April buds . . . . or something like that.
Each of these blossoms was spied in our yard on Easter. Oh happy day!
The weekend also brought some time for quilting. I finally got the applique prepped for Wednesday's Work - the project I worked on with McIrish Annie a couple of weeks back.
I have come up with a new way to select my fabrics for applique, I call it the 'Let Sleeping Puppies Lie' method. It involves counting out how many fabrics you might need, opening up the tub with fabrics and quickly pulling out the needed number. Stack on the ironing board, press and cut. Accomplish all this before an active little busy body inserts herself into the mix and starts wanting to play tug-o-war with your stash. I'm not unhappy with the result and it certainly adds a new dimension to color placement.
Speaking of a little busy body, look who is now almost tall enough to peek out the window.
Still it looks like she's on her tippy toes. The neighbor children were out in full force yesterday and Daisy was really hoping to get in on some of the action. If she had a thought bubble it might say something like, " I wish these people would stop buying me chew toys and invest in a couple of kids instead."
