I ended up having to go back to our "favorite" country shop today--but first we took a little detour to photo a "yard of blue"--
This is a big side yard and this time of year --for a short time it is all done up in blue--
This is the house and under this "little" tree the whole lawn is in blue--tiny blue flowers--it is just soooo pretty--
And this "little" tree goes up and up and up into the sky---I love this tree as much as I love those little blue flowers--
As I was taking these pictures we spotted a small tree across the street with neat flowers on it--
See---now here it is up close and personnel---
Oh my how pretty these blooms are--but I have no idea what they are--does anyone know what this tree is??????  I am saying maybe in the dogwood family????

Remember Ma Lamb and baby lamb---from yesterday--while somehow they got bagged up --but not rung up----they did not charge me for them--so I went back today and told them and paid for them--so now they are bought and paid for and they are much happier "campers" tonight!!!!
Ah--what's that you ask----did anything "new" come home with me---Ah--yes--I have to admit it--got another bird--a wood one and a stem of little white berries!!!!

Now I was a "good" girl and did get my work done before I went running around town--
Here is Tagalong with her new Pillow even---Opps you say--your pattern looks different--Ah--no--my pattern looks different--I love the Spring fabrics I used--but when I had them all laid out--
To me (and little sister) it looked far too busy--so I decided to do alittle remodeling and added the white sashing around each block--and then I also found the Plum solid color for the little squares in between and look what I got---
Another Schnibbles that needs quilting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The pillow is made from the little 1" strips we cut off the edge of some of the charm blocks--just sewed them all together and it was the perfect length for the pillow!! And I can count the pillow as my "first" string art project--yes!!!!

It is raining here tonight--and I love "listening" to it rain--do you????

Hey--Di--it is time for a "chuckle"---

*****A customer walked into our auto-parts store looking for a flat washer.
"That'll be 15 cents ." I said.
"fifteen cents for a washer?? Are you crazy???? he yelled.
"I'll drill a hole in a quarter and make my own"!!!!!!!
