Here's my butterfly block from my quilt class. I am "behind" and have to have 3 more blocks done by next Tuesday! Oi Vey! But I AM loving the class and there are 2 teachers and they are really great.

Today I worked outside all morning and here are my little pansies that I planted in my flower boxes. I have 2 flower boxes, exactly the same. I had planted wintergreen in them but evidently they didn't like being "in the box" and they didn't come back this year so I filled them with the pansies.

I got this material at the thrift store. They are very "sturdy" fabrics and one for sure is upholstery fabric. I loved the colors and they were like .99 each for YARDS of them! I could NOT pass them up....especially anything with yellow! My Favorite color!

I went to the thrift store yesterday and got these 2 great books. The quilt book is very interesting. I guess she's famous but I am just starting to quilt so I wasn't familiar with her. The cookbook is by the woman that has The Silver Palate restaurant in New York, I think. She, like Alice Walker, I think, spearheaded the "organic" food movement and eating locally grown. Like I NEED another cookbook but it was "such a deal"!!!!

Lizzie is REALLY workin'!

If you're not familiar with Lizzie...she is my sourdough starter who I feed daily except she gets to rest one day and I can now pull from her and bake whenever I want. She's amazing!

Here are some whole wheat sourdough blueberry muffins I whipped up really fast and they turned out great and tasted delish!

Spring in the Ozarks

I'm a little late with the Spring part because the redbuds are pretty much done and the dogwoods have been blooming for a week now but I was out of town Friday and the other days have been fact I took these pictures inbetween rain storms! You'll also STILL see damage in the woods from the ice storm we had in sad.
