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!!

Science Fair Excitement

Yesterday the Science Guy came to Bella's school and astounded them all with his show and tell regarding weather. Bella was picked to help with static electricity and was so excited!  She was still excited about it all that evening and was laughing while telling me all that happened.  It was very interesting to hear her explanation about tornados and how they swirled around!!!

Hellebores are Blooming


Snow Dance

Pink Frost

Onyx Odessey

Berry Swirl

The weather has been so warm for January and so far in February.  We have so many flowers, bushes and trees budding and coming up.  It could very well be a bloomless spring if we get a hard frost or freeze which is very likely from now till the middle of April.
