we had our families over for lunch on mother's day and i made these arrangements as decoration and also as the gifts. i wanted to just use what i had in the garden, hosta and azalea, but the azaleas were looking sad due to the rain we had the days before. instead i bought gerbera daisies to add to the arrangements.
happy mother's day!

i finished my first quilt a couple of weeks ago. it was a long, long process, about 5 months. and as you can see from the pumpkins, i started it in the fall. i have to admit most of that time was spent not working on the quilt. when i finally started up again it was done in no time.
i just made a basic quilt out of squares of fabric. the striped fabric was leftover from using it in the living room to make valences. i think it is just fabulous, flaws an all, and matches the living room quite nicely.
