Queen for a Day... or possibly a week.

So did you have a totally great weekend? Holy cow I did. It all started Friday when Free Quilt Patterns featured my little hexagon potholder on Facebook. I thought that was pretty cool. You know, everybody likes to be noticed, right? Then Saturday my good friend Alex asked me to stop by and visit her classroom over at Alden Lane.

Alden Lane is decked out in some serious spring time glory and if you're local you really really need to drop everything and get over there.

I love Alex. Seriously, she's smart and funny and generous and kind.. and I'm really really lucky to know her.

Then I came home and found out that I was the Blog of the Week Winner on AQS! Really really super cool. Thanks AQS for the honor!

It was such a nice day out Bret and I did some work out back .. more weeds.. well it keeps things in perspective that's for sure! Look at little girl Peep.. isn't she sweet? She came to sit in the weeds and watch. She's a Norwich Terrier but we have to periodically have her shaved down, she's a messy girl otherwise.

Then my hummingbird kept trying to get into the kitchen! (I really hope it wasn't for those sugar free cookies Bret eats!) I don't know what was going on with her, but we finally turned off all the lights inside and out and she just stayed clinging to the window there. (I guess I ought to put that red vase away, huh?)

She even let me pet her, it was the coolest thing ever. Pretty soon she zoomed off, thank goodness. I was a little bit afraid there for a while.
The whole day felt like a gift, you know? I guess I should think of every day like and maybe this was a reminder! Hope you had a wonderful weekend my very special friends. I treasure your friendship and thank you for all your kind comments and encouragement. xo

When I worked at the nursery in San Jose the hummingbird babies would sit on your finger and it was the greatest feeling to hold a little hummer in your hand.

Oh, spring, where are you? I love your pictures! Here in MI, everything is still covered with lots of snow! Sat PM, we got 4 more inches of the white stuff. It was really pretty though, as it covered the old, icky snow.

Humming birds are so sweet. Yes, they are attracted to all things red.

Have a great week!

Hugs, Karen

I always feel like that's what heaven will be like. We'll be able to pet all the animals, hummingbirds, deer, lions, all of them. They won't fear us!

Congrats on the AQS award!!

Congratulations! A beautiful weekend all around ~ sharing something wonderful you created, a lovely visit with a friend, a well-deserved award and a new little friend. All that hard work was worth it.

If only you'd bought a Powerball ticket!

Peep is a cutie.
