Baby Eagles nest and Spring Chickens!

      This cartoon was in Sunday's paper --thought I would share with you. The Decorah Eagles have 3 chicks that have hatched. View these beautiful birds as they take care of their young in this live Decorah camalerts       Speaking of birds...this is my "Spring Chicken" designed by Meme's Quilts . This pattern is on page #8 on her web-site.  I've had the pattern for awhile and needed a quick fun project ....hoping the weather here in Iowa would warm up. LOL!!!  Even though it's very cool...the grass is greening up and the Service Berry trees are blooming. Hopefully, next week will warm up so we can shop for flowers and plant them :)             Earth Day at the Des Moines Botanical Garden   I'm a member of The Des Moines Herb Study Group. Earth Day was last week. Zoe, one of our members, was in charge of setting up  our wonderful Fairy Garden display at the Des Moines Botanical Garden-----. others members assisted her.. 

Here comes Peter Cottontail!

 It's that time of the year! Birds chirping, bunnies hopping, bushes and trees are starting to bud and the grass is staring to turn green!     It's spring inside, too!            Lori of Humble Quilts hosted a doll quilt swap a month ago. Our instructions were: 24" X 24" or smaller Civil War reproduction with label.  Cathy made me this adorable quilt. She found the pattern from  Kathy Tracy's doll quilt book:    The Civil War Sewing Circle       My exchange partner was Randy of Barrister's Block  . This is the little doll quilt I made for her, using my handy "Quick & Easy Block Tool" from C&T Publishing . Each block measures 4 square inches.     And of course--- Miss Abbie...wishes you "Happy Easter!"    ^ | ^
