Pretty Darn Good Week!

Well, I am no New York Times but I would be happy to share my little week in review with you. It was a pretty darn good week!

I celebrated another year on this earth!

I really enjoyed seeing spring in full bloom here in my little spot in Upstate NY!!!!
4/30/09 SPRING!!!
Mr. U, Nature Boy and I had a really great time yesterday wandering through a nursery full of flowers and plants...

(We don't have green thumbs naturally, but we are hoping to give it a try this summer!)

I enjoyed the tranquility of hand applique...
H-12 Hannah Lou's Hearts
and so I added a couple more Dear Jane blocks to my collection....D-3 Jason's Jacks

And remember this?
25 blocks sewn together
Well, I finally took it off the wall (or really the door) and started to quilt it....

(I will share my really high tech method of quilting with you all soon! Suffice to say, this baby has to be quilted and bound for a quilt show here in town in early June (come visit!!!) and I still have another quilt to put together, sandwich, quilt and bind for the show too... what ever was I thinking?!!!)

Finally, I didn't forget that one of you would win my latest mini, so I asked my trusty Nature Boy to do the honors...
