Flowers and New Valances

These are the flowers now in bloom.  I have never had this many blooms on this Clematis before.

Red Peony I got from my friend Sara.

This is what was hanging at my windows in the living room for a long time.  I have sheers and a valance at those windows.

This is the fabric I got on sale for $2.49 a yard and I am loving it since it is hanging at the windows.

This is my north window.  Some of the sheers are pulled back so I can watch the birds.

This is the south window.  The left side looks darker because it looks out to our closed in porch.  My ceiling is really white and so are my walls.  The sun coming in made it hard to get a good picture.

This and That

This is a gift I got from Terry for Mother's day.  It is a green Ball canning jar that has been melted into a spoon holder for on my stove.  It is so neat.

Here are the last bunch of doll quilts for The Giving Doll.

My garden/ 2 tomato plants.

Flowers planted and what is already blooming.

Birds and Flowers

Here are 2 Hummer's eating at the same time.  I never get that on my feeder.

Here are the male and female Gold Finch at the Hummer Feeder.  They came twice but I do not know if he got a drink or not.  He acted like he was drinking.  I have a bird bath right next to the feeder so they could have gotten a drink there.

Flowers that are blooming.

Crazy Cats, Thread Catcher and Doll quilt tops.

These neighbor cats are always being crazy and doing funny things.  The yellow one is in the Trumpet Vine Dale cut off last year.  It can't be too comfy in there.

My thread catcher from a jeans pant leg and some scrap fabric.  It hangs next to my sewing machine.

Here are the next 4 doll quilt tops I have ready for the inside, backing and binding which I should get Tues.  I have lots more I will be making from the box of pre-cut squares I was given.  They are about 25 inches square.

Flowers and Doll Quilt Top

Here is what is blooming now.

This is the first top made from the 4 inch squares given to me to use for them.  It is a creamy yellow and a pretty green.  I have enough of this to make at least 1 more top just like this one.  It worked up in about an hour this morning.  Now I will give it to my friend so she can get a back, inside cotton and binding to go with  it.  Then I will machine quilt it and put the binding on.
