South West By South East
I finished machine quilting Pam's quilt and mailed it off to her today. She lives in Arizona, so the quilt took on the design of the SW. It's all done in Fossil Fern fabrics! Such awesome colors.
As you can see by the photo that the water receded and I was able to hang it on the clothes line to photograph.
I live in SE Ohio and our yard is covered with all of these sweet little wild flowers. I have no idea what they are called. Does anyone know? They look a bit like Verbena but these have 5 petals instead of 6.
Signs of spring are arriving, not only because of the flowers, but the ticks too! The cats have already brought in a couple.
This week I have also been dog sitting for my SIL's dog, Tiny. She is a beagle/jack rustle mix. I was able to get her in to a low cost spay and neuter clinic, so have had her for about a week. Doesn't she look like she has quite the dog life? Or does she look a little devious?
Today I heard a knock at the door and here was Tiny on the sofa with head cocked looking at me. I went to the door and no one was there. I went back to my work and heard it again and went to the door, still no one there. I had at first thought that who ever it was, was going to the back door only this time I heard the knock again and here it was Tiny beating her tail against one of the sofa pillows and smiling at me! A little late for April fool's, but you can't help but laugh at such a funny trick she pulled on me whether she knows it or not!
