I think I have been on a self imposed sabbatical but it's time I surfaced on here and get some current posts published soon. It was a lot of baseball, watching 2 grandson's play, on 2 different teams. Weddings, my 3rd grandson to get married and a great niece the week following. And then I just got out of the habit of posting, does anyone else ever get in the same boat??? Back in May, when I made the puppy tea towels for my future granddaughter-in-law, my daughter-in-law "ordered" a set of tea towels for their 20th wedding anniversary in June ..so I got busy and made the next set. I chose Bluebirds to embroider and they were fun to do. So here are the Bluebirds!! Now I have several more sets "ordered" so I guess I should just keep on embroidering tea towels for everyone in the family. My daughter's both tell me that their towels are all worn out and new ones are really needed. Okay, then!!!

|This never photographs very good, It's called Dragon Arum. Or Dragon Lily. It has a very unique blossom, that smells like something dead for a couple of days!!|
|pretty pink peony|
|I love the purple and lime green of this blossom. Only 1 plant and it is filling up the whole pot.|
|I have extended an invitation to you.|
|White daisies that come up year after year anywhere they want to..just try getting rid of them!|
|More red lilies|
|Wish they could last until the 4th of July|

I am entering my quilted portrait of my Dad, the Sailor at .Amy's Creative Side Quilt Festival I have not entered anything in the Quilt Festival previously so thought it would be a fun thing to do. There are many categories and many beautiful quilts for our eye candy. Sure hope you will hop over and check them out. Here is Dad's portrait quilt...He was about 28 in this picture and in World War II. He lived to be 98 1/2 and lived on his own until the last few months. We lost him in January 2012 and I still miss him a lot.

|My Redbud tree fully in bloom, I love this time of year.|
|My tulip bed,, ha ha. My tulips have petered out so I must plant a few new ones this Fall. I have just a couple of more to bloom in the herb garden but that's about it. I haven't planted any new one for several years so what can I expect?|

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONEAll I need to knowI learned from the Easter Bunny!· Don't put all your eggs in one basket.· Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.· There's no such thing as too much candy.· All work and no play can make you a basket case.· A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.· Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.· Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.· Some body parts should be floppy.· Keep your paws off of other people's jelly beans.· Good things come in small, sugar coated packages.· The grass is always greener in someone else's basket.To show your true colors, you have to come out of the shell.The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.May the joy of the season fill your heart.Happy Easter!
