This and That

Flower are blooming today.

Here is our pesky Chipmunk sitting on the tiller.

 Hubby found this Robin's nest in the Honey suckle.  Two babies and one egg yet to hatch.

This is my hubby's latest project from leftover wood. Need to get a pot and plants for in it yet.

Memorial Day

I want to wish all my family and friends a safe and happy Memorial Day.  Remember all those who have served to keep us free and those who lost their lives for our freedom.

This is what I sent JB.  She liked it very much.

I was in a crocheting mood when I did her PIF.

Birds and Small sewing

These pictures are of a Cat Bird.  I have a pair of them coming to the birdbath.

I also have Cardinals this year.  This is a young one and Mama was perched near by.

Just a little bit of sewing today.  I made a mat for my drink which sits near my computer.  It is actually on the corner of my dresser. I have a 6 inch floor tile  that sits there but this will sit on top of it and make it a lot nicer.

This matches the mats I made for my computer table the other day.  I did pad this on and just machine tacked it in the center.

New Store

There is a new store in our family.  My daughter-in-law Terri has just opened a store on line.  It is for scrap booking and mixed media.  You might like to take a look and pass it on to your friends.   Just check it out.  Thanks.

Today I did a little sewing.  I made a un-quilted mat for under my computer monitor.  It is from the same fabric I did my quilt with. 

Under my monitor.

I also made one for covering my scanner.  It will help keep the dust out of it.

Over the scanner.

Not exactly like the layout of my quilt but the same fabric.  I like the look it gives my computer desk.

Flowers and Doilies

This is some of what is in bloom today.

 Here are to 4 inch doilies I made this morning. I was ask how much it would cost for me to make them.  Just waiting to see if the buyer wants them.

PS I mailed off my PIF yesterday.  Please let me know when you get them.

To the ladies I owe a PIF to please send me your information again.  I lost it when my computer crashed.

Computer is fixed

My computer is fixed and now I am trying to get everything set up the way it was.  It will take me awhile.  I did lose about 16 months of data and photos because I failed to back them up.  I was the only one to blame but I am still mad at myself.

Hope every mom out there has a good mothers day.

Thanks Terry

My computer hard drive died and I have lost a lot of information I am sure.  I am on a laptop my son Eric sent home with me while he fixes my computer.  He will try to save my info but it is not likely he will be able to do that.  I have not backed up my computer for awhile.  I suggest you all do so now before you lose data.  It can happen anytime.  I can post but not add pictures at this time.  I should have mine back on Sat.
Hey everybody...this is Terry, Tudy's daughter. She asked me to post on here to let you all know that her computer is dead at the moment. She'll be back as soon as it's fixed.

This and That

I looked out my window this morning and I saw something under the Peony bush.  It was a large rabbit trying to stay dry because it was still raining after our big thunder storms last night.  Can you see him?

I looked out later and  a Robin was checking out the Trumpet vine, maybe to build a nest.  I will have to keep an eye on it.

Flowers blooming today.

We picked up plants for our yard today.  Two tomato plants and 24 Petunias.  We will plant them all in pots because I have no room in my flower beds.

I got an early Mothers day gift from Terry on Sunday.  It is a beautiful set of chimes with a Humming Bird at the top.  I really needed a new set because one of my other sets has really fallen apart.  Thanks again Terry and Family.


The kids had a surprise 70th birthday party for hubby.  I was in on it and he was completely surprised.

House Blocks Finished

Here are my May and June house blocks.  I did all 4 at the same time.  I also laid out all 12 blocks on my floor.  Now to decide what to put them together with and how to quilt or tie it.  I am very glad I have them all done.  It was very fussy for me.  But I love them.

These pictures were taken yesterday at my house.  I hope you enjoy them.

Here is what is blooming today.

This and That

I saw my first Humming bird this morning at my feeder. It is not a good picture but it is flying just left of the feeder.  I hope you can see it. I put my feeder out on Sunday.

This Granny square candle mat was made as a gift.

I made this granny square table topper as a gift also.  I have been crocheting a lot lately.

My first Clematis is in bloom.  I was afraid it would not bloom because we have had several frosts and freezes since the buds appeared.  But it is beautiful this year. 

I think I figured out how to manage blogger.  I write the first topic for a picture and then add the picture.  I then write the second topic and add the pictures for it.  And so on till I have my blog post the way I want it.  Hope this might help someone else out there having trouble with blogger.
