Wow is this really the middle of March? It has been so nice lately – since our last rain on Sunday that is. Really this whole week is to be near 80 degrees daytimes. I think out here among the shade trees it got up to 77, I’m not sure what it was in town.
Between yesterday and today I actually got the pink row sewed onto the Joseph’s Coat quilt – now to get busy making some circles. I want to get caught up on the circles before I move on to the next colors (purple family). Here is a link to how I make circles from my tutorial a couple years ago. I didn’t count how many I need for the two rows that I need to get caught up on – at least 30 or so- I have 12 made, I guess I will be busy the next several days.
Besides getting that row sewed on I have been trying to quilt every day but didn’t get any done today. I am now working on this section of Star Crazy – maybe tomorrow? Just a little more on this section and then I will be moving on down a little bit.
The Red Bud is in bloom – how pretty! It is still kind of skinny but it is growing – this one grew from seed and is probably about 6 years old or so. I have to look tomorrow if I can get through the soggy yard over in that area to look at one I found two years ago – I can’t see it from the house and do not know if it has blooms on it this year – that one too grew from seed.
I was out at the trails on Saturday with our daughter who was visiting from Little Rock as you can see from this photo – plenty of turtles were out in the swampy areas.
And although the sign warns of alligators – we didn’t see any this time – the two of us spotted (click on that link and it will lead you to the photos & story from 2008) one though several years ago– they didn’t have the sign up then but we knew there was at least one back in the swampy area – we just happened to be lucky enough that time to see it.
