Almost the end of March! The yard is not attractive at this point – spongy ground, sticks, some piles of snow, puddles and mud.
I think this hen is my favorite – gray with touches of rust. I think she’s just beautiful!
I have forgotten what kind she is but she’s the only one that looks like this.
Someone asked about my chicks who have grown so much!
They’ve gone from chicks to small chickens. When cabbage was so cheap around St. Patrick’s Day I bought 15 heads and have been putting out one at a time and they love it! They’re so hungry for something fresh and green – aren’t we all?
The geese are actually swimming in a puddle close to the pond. They are also anxious for open water again.
And here are two quite beautiful roosters.
Rita sent some pictures of her Swedish flower roosters which I have never heard of but they are handsome as can be!
I understand these are hard to get so Reed and I will have to keep our eyes open. Thanks, Rita – love your chickens!
On to a couple more Bullseye quilts. This one from Christina in Alaska – the background looks like Alaska, doesn’t it?
And Judy from TX challenged me to find the block in her quilt that is turned wrong. Can you find it?
And here it is all fixed – what a wonderful arrangement and I love the back and white backgrounds and the really bright circles- what a great quilt!
And Lois has made yet another Big Harvey.
And from Lynn, a more formal handsome Harvey.
And now let’s talk about the Quirky Little Quilts by Temecula Quilt Co. Martingales blog Stitch This is leading us in this quilt along. Here are the fabrics I’m using.
I’m going to try to give you a link to the blog. Here are my first 3 shoofly blocks.
This won’t take you long – 3 little blocks this first week. Here’s the little sampler quilt we’re making – on the cover.
I haven’t figured out the link – go online and look for Martingale’s blog called Stitch This.
Last night Becky and I went to Band Bonanza at the high school – almost in memory of our mom who loved Band Bonanza! Three bands took part – the 5-6 grade band, the junior high band and the high school band.
Here are three kids we know.
It was very good – especially when all three bands played together. We’ve decided to go to Band Bonanza every year in memory of Mom.
I leave you with a picture of Becky and Hazel – the special girls in my life!
And thanks for making me feel so much better about my deformed Harvey! I’m off to the dentist this morning.
