Where did April go?


Oh, hey.

It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks and things don't look they are going to slow down in the foreseeable future. I keep thinking that if I can get myself to May 9th, I will be able to breathe a little bit. And, heck, I might even be able to sew something. That'd be fun.

In the meantime, the peonies in the yard are inching their ways towards blooming. Of course, the ones at Whole Foods are already flaunting their wares so, naturally, some jumped in my cart. We've got lilacs, too. And I bought some geraniums for my pots. The sun is shining bright and, as always in the week leading up to the first Saturday in May, the general mood is festive around town. I don't like complaining about the weather or the seasons, but, man oh man, I was ready for winter to go. I needed spring.

I don't leave town again until July. JULY. This is very exciting. I've got some projects I'd like to tackle and farmers' markets to visit. School is winding down and I couldn't be happier about no homework on the horizon. I think the girls are with me on this. Actually, I am sure they are.

I've got a few books sitting here that I can't wait to share with you all. Good quilty inspiration! I'm thinking reviews and giveaways once a week on Fridays until I have nothing left to share. So, I guess I will see you then.



I'm so excited for this weekend, too! We were trying to go this year, but it just didn't happen.
Hoping for next year! Have a fab time! xx

Happy Derby Erin. I've been there once and now I would much prefer to stay home and watch everything on TV. I hope you have lots of fun things to do this weekend. Let me know if you are teaching anywhere as I will travel to attend. Can't wait for your book reviews. Teri


Oh, peonies and lilacs!
Believe it or not, I have never seen either until last year, and now I want a yard full of both! I've planted three lilac bushed, and three peonies, but my lilacs were bitten by frost, and the peonies aren't coming up at all:(
Rpenjoy your spring!


I too am counting down the days until I have a whole month of leisure! I went back to school last August and I forgot how much WORK it is! I have a whole pile of projects to start and a stack of books three feet high!

I went a little crazy this year with plants and vegetables, and I'm so, so happy that I did!
