Spring Flowers

Good Morning! It looks like it's going to be a nice sunny day out there. I finally turned on my air conditioner for the summer I think. So good bye low electric bills for the summer. Although they say they are not too high here......we'll see. These apartments are smaller then Carriage House but I still say bigger then most apartments.

How was everyone's Memorial Day Weekend? Mine was nice and quiet. This Friday is when my brothers and I are going up to the cematary where our parents are buried. We'll meet our aunt and uncle up there and then go out to eat. Wonder if the restaurant will have their anniversary. Last year we went up in April I think it was. And the restaurant was having their 11th anniversary. We all are fish eaters and were luck enough to get 10 pieces of smelt for $1.10 I forgot if potatoes and vegetables were included. Anyway for 7 adults my uncle only paid $25.00. Now that was a cheap meal.

I love stitching this piece. It is so pretty. I have to lay it down every so often because my eye is still having problems especially in the sun. And I live on the side the sun beams in. In a way it's nice because you get so much light compared to the apartments across the hall who have the trees. But you don't get to enjoy the fresh air or feel the wind as much on this side because there are no trees so air conditioners go on and electric bills go up. This piece will go to Quilts for Older Children and Adults. Then I think they are sending it to to Love Quilts, Brazil. There are four different flower patterns in this book and they are all so pretty. (One for each season) I think in time I may do them all.

Thank you for reading my blog and making comments. Also thank you for following my blog. I see I'm getting more followers and I appreciate that. Some people have such nice blogs and chat about almost anything and make it interesting. I'm jealous of those people, but I sure enjoy their blogs.

Well....until next time.....Happy Stitching!
