Show And Tell

While dear daughter was home on spring break, she crocheted this adorable elephant for her friends birthday gift.  I encouraged her to make more and I would put it in her Etsy shop.  She is just like her mother… she prefers to make things and give them away as gifts rather than sell them.

Dear hubby and I attended our friends Rotary Club fundraiser at the Country Club. Look what I won at the silent auction – a basket full of natural wool items! It even came with a bar of goats milk soap, hand knitted mohair scarf, and a gift certificate for a free lesson.  I think I’m going to take the spinning class:


March Garden 2014 And Update

I have been so neglecting my blog lately… But, I really want to keep up my monthly garden updates.  So, spring is here (It seems like we missed winter altogether) and this photo best describes what’s going on in our garden. Our grove is filled with the wonderful scent of orange blossoms!


I also  worked on our group row by row quilt projects.  Ellie’s is the blue winter scene, and Kandi’s is the red/white/blue patriotic row. I found the ideas for both rows on Pinterest? and also in a book I own:

And, dear daughter home for spring break got a new Thinkpad.  She asked me to make a cover for it.  After rummaging through some fat quarters, she picked this pretty pink fabric:
