I really DO know how to spell

Sometimes my fingers aren't as fast as my brain though!  Or is it the other way around? The word is DIVERGED not DEVULGED !! Sometimes I hit the wrong key and publish a post before I intend to also LOL

I finally figured out a way to do continuous bias, yippee! The placemats are all done. After I mend a small tear in a pair of pants for DD I'm going to finish a cute little pot grabber I saw on another bog and she was kind enough to mail me the pattern. It's a little chicken. It's been so long since I started it I will need to read the directions again to see what needs to be done next.

I found the cutest flannel at Jo-Ann's earlier this spring. It's bright green with red plaid ladybugs. There was only enough to make boxer-style jammies with it. Oh, well. Then, if I get left alone for awhile I will work on whittling down the fabric stash. It does no one good just sitting here.

I want to start doing Quilts for Kids and Newborns in Need. Small quilts that I can easily do the machine quilting in my tiny space. How I envy those with sewing STUDIOS !!

Friday Ponders

I love it when it rains HARD during the night and then dries out so I can do yard work later

I love trying to figure out how to do things on my own, and do them RIGHT

I love watching the deer browse in our fields

I love the scent of the air after a good rain

I love watching the little finches at the feeding station

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Have we ever had rain the last few days!  And this is only round one the weatherman says. Oh, my!! But everything around here is still so green and beautiful. I just hope it dries out enough so I can get the mowing done.

I don't know where the little quote came from but thought it was worth sharing.  I found it in a journal book that I keep interesting qoutes in.

    "Giving is Living

    Each day, ask God to show you little ways you can be a giver, even if it's simply holding the door for      another person or assisting someone with his or her struggles.  Once you catch this whole attitude of giving, confrontations on the freeway cease to be confrontational, irritating sales clerks don't seem so obnoxious anymore. and daily chores like laundry and carpooling take on a different meaning."

One of my online quilt grous is doing a challenge this month. The challenge is to do a quilt or wallhanging of something you're a fan of.  I'm still at the deciding point of choosing between Robert Browning and Robert Frost. I love the following lines that Browning wrote.

The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven--
All's right with the world!

Or this portion that Robert Frost wrote:
