Spins A Good Yarn

Spring Trees and A Quilted Pup

This has been one of the most beautiful Springs that I can remember. The flowers have been lovely and long-lasting and the trees are just beautiful. I love the Spring with all the green everywhere. So much better that Winter’s constant favorite color of gray! My friend, Joyce, has a lovely spot in the village where she lives. It is like being in the country while living in the city. Her pink dogwood was so pretty that I had to take a picture of it when I went to her house for a visit. Gorgeous, huh?!?!

I have a flowering crab in front of the window in my living room. I planted it there many years ago to block the sun from shining in all morning long and heating up the house. It has grown quite large and it has created quite a nice spot for some lovely ferns, ivy and vinca vine beneath it and a happy place for birds to gather in its branches.

Speaking of flowers: My daughter, Meagan, is a quilt artist and she made me a beautiful, flowered book to keep my artist trading cards in. She put a picture of Tiffany on both the back and front of it. There are quilted flowers in the background and appliqued ones on the background fabric. I love it!!!!! She made it for me for Mother’s Day. Thanks again, Meagan!!!!!

And here’s the back!

And here’s the original picture that she used for the book. Meagan’s husband had been playing with Tiffany with a silky blanket and when he took the blanket off of her this is how she looked!

    Hey, I’m so glad your like the photo album. Tiff sure is photogenic!

    The pictures of the trees are just gorgeous! I wish I could have seen them in person. 🙁 Maybe some day my poor little flowering crab look that nice, too.

    Love you! See you later!

    Cool picture of Tiffy. I noticed it a few days back as your avitar picture. I love her doo. I wasn’t sure if she was shaking her head or had a terrific case of static cling when I first saw it. I love the flowers. We have a few rhododendron (sp) out at camp that are loaded with flowers this year. They are so beautiful. Hopefully we will be heading out that way next week for the rest of the summer. I hope you can come out sometime. Love, me
