Thank goodness it is spring

It was one busy week last week. The week before spring break always seems to be that way. On top of it I haven't been feeling the best, so I really didn't spend much time in my sewing room. I am feeling a bit better, but by the evening my back starts hurting again and that means I don't sew.

However, yesterday was my first day of spring break (really a furlough day, but I am home so it counts) and I got some blocks done. I would have had more but I had a brown solid in with these blocks and it just did not look good so I used my trusty seam ripper and got rid of it.

Also my lovely husband picked up my camera for me.

Finally got my camera back from the repair shop. Note to self - do not drop expensive items in the middle of a parking lot.

Since I am so happy to have it back, I went out into the yard and took some picture of my square foot garden. You can see the carrots, onions, garlic, beets and some peas that I planted in the fall taking off now.

In just a few more days some little seedlings will start popping out. Hopefully that is.

I am so happy to see the tulips poking out of the garden. I can't wait for them to start blooming.

And my roses taking off.

Even the tree is starting to get leaves.

It is so green outside that the pups couldn't help but take sometime to play in the grass.


Gus was all for posing for pictures.

But he had to be on the look out because Suzie just wanted to play.

Hope everyone is doing well... I am wishing you a green spring to come soon enough if it is still white or cold where you are.
