"Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes things visible in the first place."

There is quilt making going on around here...Amazing, huh?!!! I'm making a Quilt of Valor for the project Debra told us about: 1200 quilts for returning soldiers made by May 31, 2009. I decided to make a design that I've been wanting to make for awhile, though it is not as quickly done as a simpler design. It can be construed as being patriotic, given my fabric choices and the 28 star blocks in it. So, no pictures at the moment but I'll get some up soon...after the thing starts to actually take shape. Stay tuned...

The weather here is lovely...again...No, I don't feel guilty...I am lucky to live where I do and this (late Winter through Spring) is the time of year I love the most here. The flowers are glorious at the moment and the air is soft. I had my gardener plant 10 nice Indian Hawthorn bushes outside the picture window along the wide bank today...they are lovely and covered with pink flowers. And the citrus blossoms from the trees in the orchard are filling the air around here with such a heady fragrance...I tell you, this is the life...

Quilt pictures coming, I promise...

I was just thinking the same about my place. I glanced out the window yesterday to see the 5 new rose bushes I planted earlier this spring have beautiful pink roses blooming on them. I am so easily impressed!

Love your new header too!

Nice to see you posting again, Debby!
And quilting for that matter, too!

Spring is just so wonderful, isn't it? Worked in the garden today...think I even got a bit of sun, too! Vitamin D is GOOD!
