This is my Dresden Plate quilt at this point. Oops, I also put a border of green on it since I took this picture. Jim and I went to two stores in search of some kind of fabric for the backing. I think that perhaps I should have just ordered something online from the same line as the Dresden Plate but . . . .. didn't. LOL!
So, I have the backing but still have to do some work on the front before quilting. Once I do the grass below the flowers, I can put the layers together. I think I'm going to do SID on the squares and borders with the machine and then hand quilt in the squares and around the Dresden. I have something special planned for the center of the Dresden but I'm still unsure how it will work. Happy quilting !

Happy June 1st to everyone! I can't believe how quickly time is going. I think that it just seems so because we went from cold temps to hot temps without having a spring . . . . again. I guess this is just our changing world. Remember, there is no global warming just changes in temps.

This bird eats at the same feeder as the Goldfinch. He barely ate at all but keep a real close eye on the neighborhood. Me, in particular. Of course, Boz is also outside. She is a little smaller than he is and all brown. He is about the same size as a Goldfinch but has red instead which tells me that they are probably some kind of finch. Only this one pair has made an appearance and neither time was at the same time as the Goldfinches which descend on our feeders in droves.....several pairs bicker and fight over two feeders.....all at the same time.

Help, Blogger is confusing me. Evidentally, I changed my email and when I tried to log it in, the system set me up as a new user for that email. Now, I have to use the gmail email for logging in and getting responses. I guess that makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, I don't check that email very often. Guess I'll have to now. LOL!.

Mother's Day 2008 . . . . the last time all four of my children were in the same place. I wish that I were with you all today to celebrate Mother's Day. Since we are all in separate places, I would like to send a big hug to all of you and to your extended families as well.

A view of the wooded section of our back yard. It's coming along nicely. The landscaper that works with the builder is doing some more work in the rear to clear out tree stumps and other yucky things.
Eventually, it will be all grass and a pathway lined with hostas and other shade plants.
