Well just the late morning early afternoon – Melanie and I decided to hike around part of the trail at the top of Mt. Nebo State Park – it is a very pretty park with several trails but we got a late start so we only did part of the trail – the way it […]

Outside and Inside from Quilts....etc.

Yes I spend the morning running from one place to another with Melanie – we were enjoying our morning/early afternoon enjoying the freedom of knowing we are fully vaccinated – still being careful but enjoying out time.  Instead of walking at the trails we went to Farmer’s Markets, a little shopping, lunch, a hair cut […]

Seeing as the color for May with the RSC21 group is red I choice the block that has holly leaf’s and berries to be Love Letters block number 5.  I will wait to add the berries though until a lot of the applique is finished because as of now the block looks too crowded for […]

Love Letters Progress from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was spent off and on in the sewing room or outside.  It was a lovely day – the tree pollen is getting less and less every day and the water is soaking into the ground so we are not sinking into the dirt as much! One of the reasons I bought the die with […]

We made it through another spring storm with no damage – in fact the storms got smaller as they got to our area after having wreaked havoc in the western part of the state where a tornado touched down near where one of my many nieces live – she lost power and will be out […]
