I saw a robin in my tree this last week.
So despite the fact that we keep having snow storms.
I'm hopeful spring is on it's way.
Crossing my fingers and toes that it really is

I've never quilted and bond a quilt in a day. The stars must have aligned and shined on me. Yeah to a new baby and a finished quilt.

This next block was a fun one to make. It's a ladder for Janeth from Sew Bee Wonky. She has a tutorial on her blog if you want to give it a go. Like I said it is fun to make. I think her quilt is going to be so crisp and modern looking. I can't wait to see all the blocks together.
The last blocks I have to show today are simple square in a square blocks for Terri in the Twice as Nice Bee. They were easy to make and it was fun to make the one corner different.
I hope everyone likes their blocks. I still have one more to make. There was a little confusion over it but I think I get what is going on now so I hope to get it done this weekend. Also I'll be linking up with Sarah for a little Whoop Whoop. All these blocks deserve a little celebration.

A few more flowers for spring.
Cute little yo you flowers with ric rac stems.
Vintage posies to bring back found memories
I really liked the 3-D effect of these little beauties.
I've always loved grandmother's garden. These caught my eye with there modern fresh look.
Remember that all my Find the Good photos come from Flickr. Just click on them to see more by the same artist.
Hope you are having a good Monday.

Get everything cut out and ready to sew. Make some meals for your family so they won' starve while you are gone. Yes, I know the salad I made and the veggies I prepared will not be eaten like I am hoping. But no veggies would be eaten if I don't have them prepared. I'm looking forward to someone else cooking for me while I'm gone.

When I arrived when set about changing the tire only to find that the jack was just a bit to tall to fit under his car. Fortunately he has a bug and they are light. In my college days I remember boys picking up and moving peoples bugs as a prank. So I suggested he lift it up a little and I would put the jack under. It worked perfectly. We got the tire changed but noticed the spare was a little low on air so I told him I would follow him to the gas station. Good thing I did because less than two miles later he had another flat. So we loaded up the two flat tires and I had him drop me off at an appointment I was not late for while he got new tires mounted on his rims. Luckily he had four new tires at home and did not have to purchase new tires. Also luckily by the time they were ready his brother was home from high school and could help him so I could begin quilting my kaleidoscope quilt.
I'm quilting it with embroidery floss. I just cut about a yard of one color and quilt until it runs out and then do the same with another color. I'm really liking the effect it is having as I add colorful, cute stitches through the white on this quilt.

I noticed my first crocus popping it's yellow head out this week. It made me smile and let me know that the snows of the last few weeks are coming to and end and spring will be here soon.
That although I love snow, change is good.
Spring flowers cheer the heart.
And that cute little crocus I saw earlier this week brings hope.
Isn't spring wonderful!

When she was feeling a little better I helped her make a new pillow case. Didn't she do a beautiful job?
Here is Diane cutting foundation blocks for our next quilts. Shelly is taking a break after finishing the previously mentioned top.
