"Tending the Garden"

Artist, Steven Dohanos, captured this wonderful scene in 1951.
One of my father's saying's was-----
"It takes a heap of living to make a house a home!" ----

He failed to mention " heaps" removed to maintain tidy lawn, flowerbeds and garden. These are just a few "heaps" in our driveway. We're half way there ----YIKES!!!!

Finished piecing Kathleen Tracy's (Crosses Mourning Quilt) design and ready to quilt ----this will keep me busy!
Little "chicks" were hatched this week---to cute to stick pins in them!

Hope you are having a great week!

Hug's, Carolyn

Creating "green" projects!

Have thread-- will sew!
I'm in my sewing room dressed in green and.....

                                               gathered up some of my green "stash" and.....

...made a pin cushion and....
 a small green doll quilt, too!

"May you always have work for your hands to do.
May Your pockets hold a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certian to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you."
