The best thing. . .


about a beautiful day in March, is that we have the whole lovely spring and summer in front of us. Yes, rain and snow are in the forecast for the next few days, but oh my! Today was the most gorgeous day, with lots of sunshine, blue sky, and singing birds. I had a day off, and we took my mom for a wheelchair walk outside, which she enjoyed as much as we did.

I'm going to hang the pansy wall hanging on the wall at work. I'm a bit disappointed in the hand quilting in the blue background. I carefully stitched eight big butterflies in matching thread, and somehow they just make it look wrinkled. Oh well, I know they are butterflies, and the overall effect is flowers blooming in spring, which was the whole idea.

Wishing you the best.

I think your pansy wall hanging is very pretty, Diana! The weather here has been wonderful all week long. They are saying rain and cooler temperatures are heading this way, but I'm enjoying what we have now. Hope you have a nice weekend! :)

I'm sorry you are disappointed in the butterflies but I think the effect is to 'throw' the pot of pansies into relief- or that's the impression the photo gives.

I've been wondering about your mother in law and how she's doing. Its nice to get outside when you can with the uncertain weather that's in it. Same with us here, although its warming up fairly quickly with us.

Ginny, it's always good to see your smiling face! To me, this is play, not work. Work involves cleaning and sometimes even cooking. :>}

Daisy, I do love your new haircut! I hope you have a nice weekend, too.

Heather, thanks for inquiring about my m-i-l. She is doing amazingly well after hip surgery. She rehabbed at the same place where my mom lives, and is back home now.

Your wall hanging is beautiful and hope you spring and summer arrive for you soon.
