Blooming this Weekend

So far February has been so warm and March is coming in like a lamb!!!  Everything we have in the flower garden is coming up or sprouting way too soon.  If March goes out like a lion we might not have any blooms for this spring left to see!!!

Lace Bobbins

I ran across these lovely lace bobbins yesterday at the Queen Bee Cottage blog and thought I just had to have some and this is what I've made today.  Love, love, love these!!!


I made mine 5" tall

card stock I just happened to have

I now have 8 of my own beautiful lace bobbins!

Now the trick will be to find where I've put my lace so I can wrap these lovelys.

Bella's Stocking & Turdie Quilt

I finally got the beading done on Bella's stocking and Mom sewed it all together 2 days before Christmas.  The same night I put the borders on Bella's Turdie the Turtle quilt and it is ready for quilting.  She was so excited to see them both!!
