I’ve been working on the Sunflower House the past two nights, and it’s going to be so pretty. I love that it’s blue and yellow, a great combination I think! :D Tonight my friend is coming over to look through my quilt patterns. She is just learning how to make quilts, and I’m afraid she’s got bit by “the bug” LOL! She wants to make one for a friend and needs some ideas. Tomorrow we are going out to Holly Hill Quilt shop (one of my all time favorites) to see what they have. I am excited to go there again. It should be a nice weekend. PLUS the weather is supposed to be in the 70’s. I am so happy about that.

I went to Lowe’s today and got a bunch of flowers, I found the “clearance” rack and got most for only 25 cents. You can’t beat that! I hope to find some big wooden barrels to plant them in, you know the wine barrels cut in half? Those make good planters :) Wish me luck. I need to till the garden too, and start planting tomatoes and whatnot in there. I sure hope Sunny will leave it alone. You never know with dogs :) The gardening shall begin! Woohoo!!!

First of all...in your '2008 Finishes' list on the right hand side of your page...you should put #8 in bold font!

Second. I just updated with pictures of my SAL piece. Let me know what you think! :o)

Thanks for the nudge!

I'm really going to enjoy seeing your progress on Sunflower House. I really wanted that chart but it's out of print, so I will be happy watching you stitch it and living vicariously through you. Happy Birthday!
