In the Newspaper today--the head line reads--
Beware of low-flying birds in the hallway of the second floor level at the Jefferson Village apts!!!!!
We have been told here at the news center that a bird or two has been spotted flying from Apt #07 to Apt #18 and back again--Here's Di with the "scoop"!!
Well--Mr Reporter--it is really quiet simple---Little sister bought us each a Pretty tin bird--one in a pretty blue and one in a green---I had my pick first--and picked the blue one--she took the green one!!! But for some unforseen reason--the birds were not "happy" in their new homes---so they flew around and exchanged places to live!!!
And I am happy to report that as of today--they both seem to be happier!!
See the green bird does look more at home here with the colors in the items in the background!!!!
I actually got outside today and little sister and I went to the Quilt shop and then to lunch---this is what I got at the Quilt shop--
I love this piece of fabric and there is other fabrics in these greens and purples in the line--but I got this one to see if it will go with some hand-piecing blocks I have done in a class and need to finish one of these years!!!!!
And I got 3--1/3yard pieces of the new Blush line--I just love these three--sorta have something in mine for them--BUT???????
When I got back here,my order from Cotton Charms was in and this is what I got from them--
3-1/2 yard cuts of the Whimsy fabric to go with what I won from Kelly for the Quilt I am designing--at least I have something on paper--that I want to try!!!!
I also ordered this Honey bun---can anyone tell me which one it is????? You never know--there might be a prize here for the correct answer!!!!!
Update on my Mary---
I went down at my usual time--and look what I found there--
Now these are not fake flowers--they are real---and they are really "bright" colors---WOW!!!!
As for Mary--she was not as good today as Yesterday--but was trying to be OK for everyone who is coming to visit and who is calling--her phone rings constantly--but now her DD answers it to see if Mary needs to talk to them or not---I can not tell you how much I admire this Lady!!!
Also while down to Mary's I took a picture of this stone--
One of her granddaughters gave her this glass paper weight last year sometime--It is a real pretty thing to look at and you see something different every time you pick it up and study it!!!
Now in all this ---did "Di" get any work done today???? She says --Yes I did !!!!
I got the rest of the tops to the Easter place mats stitched and everything is ready for me to finish putting them together tomorrow---hopefully!!!!
And I got the backing and batting on this months -- Roundabout--and I even got it basted--so I may get this one quilted this month--on time!!!!
Thank you to everyone who is praying for Mary and her family--and me--it is a hard one--it is hard for me to know when to go see her--and if there is something else I may be able to do for her----Or--is this where I back off and leave her to her family time now--so many questions!!!!
OH NO--we are at a week end again---we have had a wonderful week of sunshine and warm temps--and can you believe now they are telling us "snow" is coming on Monday--Crazy!!!!
