Look what my brave yorkie found this morning in my garden. No wonder my plants are being eaten up. Maybe this little guy and his mom will find a new place to hang out now that Buddy gave him his two cents worth. LOL! I like Bambi, just don't want him living in my garden.

Just thought I would share a little mini collage quilt I just completed. It was so much fun to do. I also finished my mini quilt for the Spring Mini Quilt Swap. I will post a picture of that one tomorrow. I hope my partner likes it!

Not the best photo, but all my orchids are blooming and it is so pretty to see these blooms. The best thing about orchids is that the flowers last for months! They just make me happy everytime I see them. What an amazingly beautiful creation...what an awesome God that has created our universe.

The 'girls' got together for brunch today. I think we look like sisters but none of us are least not in this life. LOL! The weather was perfect and the friends and food fabulous. Sometimes you just wish you could bottle moments in time. I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend.

One of my granddaughters wanted a Mancala board for her birthday so I carved her one and carved her name on it also. I think now I have to make a couple more, one for me and ? It looks like fun to play. Good thing I still have a couple of my carving tools.

I have been trying to clean up some unfinished projects this weekend. I finished the machine quilting on this one and just have the binding left to do... I have new appreciation for those who machine quilt on little regular machines like mine. I have a lot of learning to do to coordinate my speed and movement of the quilt. But it sure was fun and how else will I learn without doing? Jim made me a design board this weekend. He made it from the old platform from a queen size bed. I knew we saved that for a reason. LOL! I am going to cover it with a fitted flannel sheet. I can also lay it flat across a smaller table and use it to pin my quilts. I am really excited...I had no place I could pin a quilt before this. Thank goodness I have a kind, wonderful friend who let me pin my big quilts at her home.
It is nice and sunny here in WI today...could be a little warmer, but I am not complaining. I actually got out and cleaned up my garden some from winter. I also made mother's day presents for my darling daughters....a productive weekend all around here.
