My lovely bleeding hearts are blooming in the backyard as I write this and the lilacs are almost there too. (Arrrgh - My camera seems to be malfunctioning this week so all of these photos are from last May. The yard is not quite this lush yet. Two more weeks.)
I'm so happy that I'll be teaching my favorite little springtime quilt - Clarissa's Garden - at a workshop this Saturday. A perfect time to applique some flowers. If you don't have it, you can purchase the pattern on my website.
Will you be doing something with flowers this Mother's Day weekend? Either in the garden or in your sewing room? After I get home from teaching, I'll look forward to seeing my kids on Sunday. My daughter will get me something for the garden. My son and I will watch the Chicago Bulls do their best in the playoff game and cheer and scream and yell at the refs. My husband will cook something yummy for us on the grill. No cooking or cleaning for me for a change. No sewing either, but a perfect day nonetheless. Maybe I should bring out my pretty English Rose Garden plates?? Hurry up, Sunday! Weather, please be nice.
Have a Happy Mother's Day
