April Downpours!

We've had a little bit of rain the past couple of weeks.  I  told a friend last week I'm not sure if I'll be buying flowers or fish for my garden this year!!

In spite of this, I was able to go out and work in one of the other flower beds the other day when it was so nice and warm here. Every little bit helps, I guess.







In other news, the teeny invasion continues!    The teeny bunnies are multiplying- as bunnies tend to do when left unattended.
(My husband asked me what I plan to do with all of them.  Men are so funny, aren't they?)







Meanwhile, the daffodils have attracted a teeny bee.   He's actually hovering over the quilt pictured at the top of my blog.  I guess he thought the flowers were real?














I did some garment sewing last weekend.  This one is for a class at Mt Pleasant.  We called it the Easy Three Seasons Jacket.  It's an easy to sew pattern by Butterick, from their "Fast and Easy" collection.  Very comfortable, too!
This one is from fabric I got in Lancaster last month.  The pattern is the "Four Yard Wonder Jacket", by the Rag Merchant.  A very comfortable shirt/ jacket.  If, like me, you travel to the Bahamas frequently (how a friend describes her hot flashes), you know the value of a light, easy to remove shirt!  The fabric is from the "Paradise collection" by art gallery fabrics.  They are soft and thin, like batiks!  (No affiliation, just loved the feel of them!)

I have high hopes for this weekend if it's not nice enough- and dry enough- to work outside.







I am grateful for:
Sitting on the porch listening to the birds and the peepers.
Sleeping with the windows open!
The hype over the royal wedding ends tomorrow.
In 12 more days I'll be with some of my Quilt Pocket friends!
A pretty bouquet of flowers from my boss.
