Spring flowers on the farm

A pop of color all over the yard makes my heart sing and swell!!  I love flowers anytime of the year but these sure help get rid of the winter doldrums.  Spring is in full swing in our area and the cars are covered with pollen and the honeybees are so happy that we’ve already had our first bee swarm!  It left for the mountains before we could capture it.  Of course, the fruit trees in full bloom are helping them, too.

The other project that isn’t finished

About four years ago hubby bought me an embroidery machine which I love.  It’s an older model but perfect for me.  I started making blocks of embroidered snowmen and plan to turn those blocks into a quilt.  Here’s a quick view of some of the blocks.

Embroidered snowmen for another quilt (1)Each block will have a different color scarf and I’m thinking about adding a new version of the snowman too.  Aren’t they adoable??  I’ve not decided how to put the quilt together but thinking about borders of brightly colored snowmen and Christmas fabrics or just winter fabrics.  I’ve got a long way to go though because I only have about 20 of the blocks completed.  I’m finding it hard to stay with the machine any length of time.

Fall Color

I’m so looking forward to fall and the beautiful colors that come with it.  To make my wait a little less painful I thought I would share these photos of past autumns at the farm.  ENJOY God’s beautiful artwork with me!

Fall means cider time and Sassy is guarding the apples!
