I just wanted to say I’ve been missing you and thinking of you, but it’s the mere fact that things are going by faster than I can keep up is a huge understatement.
I’ve done a few updates at the retreat house. We had some new landscaping added and I’m really enjoying it. Our winter was very hard and we lost a lot of great plants, some have been trimmed up and are coming back, I still have hopes that one will come back, but it still has no sign of green yet – my bougainvillea, but my Rangoon creeper is coming back!
As the spring deepens, the bright greens are coming a little richer and oh how I enjoy the smells and blooms of spring. I even cut some of my drift roses the other day; they have such a great smell. I have some new gardenia bushes they have some huge buds developing!
Speaking of spring, it is the time of birth and we welcomed a new grandson into our family. My daughter, Katie had a new baby on March 28th, a son named Nolan. He had lung difficulties in the beginning but he is now fully recovered and is healthy and growing. He even may have RED hair, for which I’m very excited about – he does have a head full of hair!
I got to go on an amazing cruise with Lisa Bongean and Lisa Hawley. I got to know several new quilters and fellow wool lovers. Lisa designed 2 more amazing projects and one is almost finished and one is in the works.
We got some cute “Pete the Cat” fabric at the shop from Marcus fabrics and they had a cute downloadable pattern, so I worked it up and it is now at the quilter’s home getting all prettied up! I have kits available at the shop if you are interested in one.
More to report later, I don’t want this to go on too long and you fall asleep out there.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
