Band and Flowers

Last night Triway High School had their band preview.  Our granddaughter Emily was in it.  She is Terry's daughter.

Emily is the one looking at us.

Emily is on the end in front.

Flowers blooming now.

Flowers, Skies and Giveaway

Here are the flowers blooming today. This poor Rose looked like it was a gonner after our nasty winter but it came back.  It is only about a foot tall and the blooms are not pretty but it made it.

These Lilies just keep blooming even though they are near a Black Walnut tree that has killed off a lot of other plants.

Coming home from our son's Saturday night these were the clouds we say and the sunset.

If I counted right this is my 1000 post since Jan. 2009.  I will have a surprise giveaway on Fri.  Please just comment on this post and do not pass it around.  I want one of my regular followers to win.  I have loved my years of blogging and wish to give someone a nice gift.  I want to thank my daughter Terry for getting me started and all the help she has been.

This and That

Sky coming home from Terry's last week close to sunset. From the passenger's seat out the driver's window.

The kitten was trying to get a drink the way it's mom does, from the bird bath.  Too small to jump up.

Almost there.

Made it.

4 Doll Quilts finished.

Left yesterday to run some errands and this was the sky.  Chance of rain suppose to be for all day.

Then we headed for Amish Country.  I love pictures of the sky and clouds so that is what I took yesterday.

Behind the Truck Patch on the way to Charm.

Bug and Flowers

This bug was sitting on my Shepard's hook yesterday and I am not sure what it is.

My Star Gazer Lilies are in bloom.  I lost half of them over the winter and they were in a pot on my closed in porch.  That is how bad our winter was.

I think this is a Purple Cone Flower but I am not sure.  Terry gave them to me a long time ago.

Te Beatles are starting to eat my flowers so I guess I need to find something to get rid of them.

I saw this pattern and had to try it.  I think his head might be just a little too big but he is cute.  What do you think?

You can see his smile in this picture.

Here are the last 6 doll quilts I finished for the Giving Doll.

I have a few more cut out ready to sew together.  This is a good program to donate to.

This and That

Newest kitten in the neighborhood.  Momma is on the other side of the fence but there is a hole right where the kitten is.

In bloom right now.

Sat. at Eric and Terri's.  They were just putting in the last of the stone pavers in their new patio.  His grill and smoker will sit on it.

First 3 grape tomatoes and boy were they good. Sorry for the blurry picture.  For some reason I could not get a clear picture of them.
