It's finally starting to feel like Spring around here.  
Some blossoms are beginning to pop open and I love it. 
I've made a little blossom lately.  This is my one flower for One Flower Wednesday.
 I thought I'd wait to show off the quilt top that I'm stitching with these little yellow and black flowers until it is a bit bigger.  Then you'll really be surprised and have to say, "Wow!! Look how much she's done!!"

This the the block I made for Tiffany for the Block Swap Adventure.
She wanted something wonky and pink.  I had some fun with this string pieced block.  
I hope she likes it.


 And finally, these ones are for Coralie for the Barn Door Swap.
She wanted hers to be scrappy with a light background.  I pulled these scraps out of my pile and I liked how they went together.  Hope she thinks so too.

I dropped three enveloped in the mail the other day.  All going to different places with different swap goodies inside.  That stresses me a bit.  Mailing several at the same time.  Then I spend the next few days worrying that I've mixed up my mailings and someone will get the wrong block....
I worry too much sometimes.

Today, I  hope to get another animal block started and I hope to be outside doing some woodwork too. When it's cold out, I love to be inside sewing and creating with fabric, but when the weather gets nice, I like to be outside, creating with wood too.

Another lovely flower ........ it looks great on the foliage! Thankyou for your comment on the I Spy quilt top, I can swap some with you if you like though the spare fabrics I have are probably mostly blues and boyish - I don't really know why they just seemed more readily available!
