In Canada we have a retail store called Sears in our shopping malls, they also have a mail order catalogue, you can go on line or call their order desk to make a purchase. Your item is then mailed to you oryou can go to their local pick up store. After purchasing an item from the catalogue they send you copies of all of their catalogues, large ones for Spring and Summer and Fall and Winter, and ones of "Specials", "End of season Sales" etc, etc. and the list goes on and on.
The Spring and Summer one arrived in the middle of Winter, am I depressed... today is May 30th. Summer officially starts on June 21st. and the Fall and Winter catalogue was in my mail box today. I don't want to be reminded that Winter weather could be only six months away, so I refuse to open the plastic wrapper to look inside.
On a happier note the rain is suppose to stop for the coming week and we will see that big ball of fire in the sky with temperatures in the high 20's or even low 30's. I can see and hear my lawn growing already, now all I have to do is try and get my lawn mower to stay running so it can be mowed.
Have a wonderful Monday.

Its not big problem to change them but, the patterns instruction indicated that they should be sewn with four rows of stitching to make them secure, which I did. I am going to be doing some froggie work, then put them on correctly and then take a photo.

A lot of the fabric I chose for this quilt has small hearts on it, so I had the "quilter man" (the husband of one of my guild members), use a heart pattern for the quilting.
Included in the label is a piece of lace that was on my wedding dress.

Take a look at this magnificent tree, I call it a tulip tree but I believe it is a magnolia. Yesterday, I was at the cemetery where my DH is, and this tree was so beautiful I went home to pick up my camera to take a photo.
Rain is in the forecast for the next few days, a chance to get my housework caught up and also make the churn dash block for our guild meeting next Thursday. Last night I finished sewing the binding on my Grand daughters wedding quilt, its only seven months late!!.
Have a great weekend.

Early this morning the bedding was stripped off the bed and was blowing merrily on the line all day. The first time this year I have used the clothes line.
This was certainly not a day to stay in and sew, my sewing machine is going to be wondering what happened to me.
Three hours in the garden, cleaning up the winter kill and weeds. It was so nice to get the dirt under my finger nails again. A robin sitting on her eggs in the nest she built in the honeysuckle, scolded me when I got too close. The waterfall in my pond gently trickling down the rocks provided a backdrop to all the other birds singing as they were busy catching bugs or gathering bits and pieces to use in building their nests. It was such a lovely warm day, you could almost hear the leaves opening on the red maple tree.
Why am I so happy to be in my garden working? Gardening is my hobby, during the nice weather, and it has been a long time coming this year.
Gotta go, all this work has given me an appetite for my chicken dinner.
