The spring time flowers are just so beautiful right now, I can't resist photographing them.
We visited Floriade on the weekend, but I'm not as moved by cleverly designed beds of bulbs as I am by uncared-for trees which are just covered with such pretty flowers. (I know the trees are not cared for, since they're in my garden!)
My parents visited for the weekend, and we all had a nice time. The children spent some time painting gnomes, and next year I'll be doing it too (it was far too hard stifling my creative, directorial urges!)
Finally, I had my second and final hexagon class. The hexagons are looking great, and distinctly spring-like.
I already shared this little story with my online quilting group, but here it is again anyway;
Oh, I forgot to tell you all about one of the quilters in my class. She was talking a LOT, and always about buttocks. I thought this was strange, but never heard enough of the conversation to know WHY she was talking about buttocks. Anyway, just before we all left, she was showing her hexagons off, and complaining about the problems she'd had matching her fabrics, since they were all BATIKS!
