I only have time for a quick post this morning. I'm expecting to hear the pitter patter of little 4-year-old feet running down the hallway, wanting to fix a special breakfast with Grammy. Kids are natural cooks and Jess loves to be in the kitchen.
Yesterday, before the family arrived, I finished Buttonwood. To add a little whimsy, I have two Lady Bugs buttons flying around the quilt.
I wanted to have this finished and on display for Memorial Day, and I completed it not a moment too soon.
Mr. Joe made the snowshoe lamp for me by the side of the bed. I saw one in a magazine that cost a gazillion dollars, and he said, "I can do that."
The storm announced itself with the crackle of thunder rolling across the mountains, and rain, and hail, and then the snow started falling. My clematis wasn't expecting her blossom to fill with hail.
No picnic lunch for us on the deck yesterday.
This is my view from the dining room where I set up my quilting shop. I didn't get much done as I was too busy looking out the window, trying to convince myself that it's May, the official beginning of summer. I was working on the pesky "Y" seams.
We'll try to get a hike in today between storm clouds. I'm still trying to work off the calories from the beer can chicken and bacon!
