It was a gorgeous sunny weekend here. Achingly so, considering we're facing more and more AND MORE days of rain. Yes, it's true, we need the rain, and I'll suck it up, but man, the sunshine was wonderful. Now if only the snails that come with all the moisture were so cute.

My new crab apple tree went in the ground thanks to Bret. My faithful old apricot tree is on its last legs, so we planted this pretty flowering tree next to it, so when the apricot finally goes, I'll have a tree there still.

There was sewing too. Lots of tiny pieces last week turning into a quilt that hopefully will be heading to Diana for her special treatment. Thanks again to Holly for sending along some of her amazing Dolly Dresses fabric for our use. It will be nice to have a pattern ready when the fabric becomes available. I'll work on getting my instructions to Elizabeth who can turn them into something people can actually use.
So, how was your weekend?

My weekend was not great...suffering with bronchitis, a lot of coughing and lack of sleep. But...that quilt square refreshed the fabrics!

Too short!!! They ALWAYS are. : / Went to the Lancaster AQS Quilt Show though and it was pretty terrific, especially for a first!

Those snails are too cute! LOVE the crab apple that's about to bust forth with flowers! And, what a tease...those fabrics are adorably cute!
