Totally Random

A little bit of everything today!

Twirly Girl skirt pattern and a jelly roll of Birdie.
Hoping to make 2 of these this week for my niece's little girls.
We can't wait to see them on Saturday.

A baby quilt for Bill's coworker's new baby boy.
Fabric is On the Go by Jill Webster for Clothworks.
Many thanks to Fat Quarter Shop for the speedy delivery!

Big news!
My nephew Christopher proposed to his girlfriend of 8 years yesterday at a covered bridge in Vermont. We're so happy for them both! And you know what this means: Wedding Quilt!!

Bill bought Julia a bouquet of roses for her birthday that faded to an incredible velvety purple-red. Of course, impossible to capture on our cheap camera.

Thank God for the lilacs!
A farmer nearby dressed his field with cow manure.
If not for the lilacs, we wouldn't be able to go outside for a week!

Pete's first at-bat of the season! Yay! I love baseball season!

An osprey family holds court over the baseball and softball fields.
We watched mama bird deliver a couple of fish to the babies during the game.

The Baltimore Oriole couple has returned home to our backyard for the summer. No pics yet. I just caught sight of them this morning. The oranges are out at the feeder for their lunch.

Happy Star Wars Day!
May the Fourth be with you!
(get it? May 4th?)
