I finally made something new for my apartment door. The little girl with her snow man had to go. :<) I used 4 different sets of colored patterns and reversed for the flowers - 2 sets of 8 different combinations. Took some time to punch out, assemble and create the wreath but it was well worth it as it is very colorful and Spring-like. So pretty!
It has been very rainy here in this part of WI for a few days but today is sunny and lovely weather! All the green grass and flowering trees and people working in their yards and gardens makes the long winter we had fade into the past! Jimbo loves it too! :<)
"Isn't this great?"
Wishing YOU a happy day!

Today is "What's On Your Workdesk?" time - I have not shared for such a long time and it is great to do so and check out many of the bloggers on the post today! You can see what so many are doing by checking them out on Julia Dunnit's blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/. I am now at the quilting stage of my applique. Those of you who follow my blog know that I took classes to learn how to applique, as that was a needlework that I had not done before and this wall hanging is the project we worked on. I have decided to hand quilt it and so have been learning all about that also. With my poor eyesight I need to work at my workdesk under the two OTT Lites so can't sit in comfort in my recliner - but it is fun anyway. I have it layered with the batting in the middle and the backing on - cut them 2 inches larger all around as I have learned that the fabric pulls in as you quilt the design. (See - I am learning!)
While I was working I looked down and saw that Jimbo had found my bag of stuffing made a perfect bed with pillow and was sound asleep. Later when he woke up and I asked him how his nap was he looked at me like "Was that ok?" and of course it was. This cat is charming - so gentle and sweet and I love him.
Thank you for visiting my blog today! It is thundering at the moment here in this part of WI. It has been beautiful weather here but now storms moving in. Wishing you a lovely day where you are!

Those of you who follow my blog know that Jimbo thinks of my workdesk chair as "His" chair and when I am working he finds it frustrating to find me in it. This day he found waiting also VERY tiring. :<)
"Here we go again! Why can't she get another chair?"
"Getting so tired!"
"O.K. I accept your apology - now can I have my chair?"
Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! We have SUNSHINE here in this part of WI - AND warmer temperatures for the entire weekend! Sunshine, blue skies and warm weather - how much better does it get than that! Wishing you a happy weekend!
