I knew there was a reason to mow everywhere I could in the past two days because today it’s really raining – not drizzly – raining. Everything is very green and beautiful – spring in Iowa.
Here is Connie’s progress on her design wall – isn’t it beautiful?
I’ve been having trouble with the longarm machine – Tony has been here twice to work on it and I not sure it’s completely ok yet.
I am so lucky my machine repairman lives just a few miles away!
Andrew sent us a new picture of Luna. Wow! Hasn’t she grown?
And Grandma Sandy recently made this quilt for Luna – a great scrap improv quilt, isn’t it?
This week my orchid cactus had one open bloom and I posted it on Instagram. This bloom will last only a few hours – less than a day but there are more buds getting ready to open. The plant itself is not attractive but these once a year blooms make it all worth it. My plant is very old – maybe 20 years and extremely pot bound – it must like it that way.
Remember this picture – someone asked about the picture of the cat looking up at the camera from under my machine.
This is the back cover of our Rugs From Rags book which is under my machine to level it. Pam is one of my very favorite cats – she’s here right now helping me post.
She’s named after our neighbor, Pam, who found this tiny kitten in her brush pile and brought her here. I wouldn’t give her up for anything but do you see how I end up with so many cats?????
Mama Kitty says “hey”!
Bird report – here’s another little bird who was stunned after hitting the window – he recovered and flew away.
And this poor wood thrush did not recover.
I have so many orioles who are eating jars and jars of grape jelly!
Two more finishes – where is your name tag???
Peggy has surprise kittens – she’s named the gray one Gracie – I think a name constitutes ownership, don’t you?
Saved this picture from Facebook of a Jen Kingwell quilt – isn’t it just wonderful?
Talk about a miscellaneous blog post!!! Here’s one more picture that I just loved!
Church tomorrow at 8:30 am – BE STILL, Everybody! Hope this is over soon.
