A Lazy Sunday Afternoon

It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  The azaleas in the woods are in full bloom.

 It's a perfect day to while away the afternoon in the hammock with a good book.

 And while I was setting up my hammock I disturbed a mother cardinal nearby.

As I was being lazy  in my hammock, she was busy sitting on her eggs.

How did you spend your Sunday afternoon?  I'd love to know!

Come For Tea

The dogwood are in bloom.  It is a beautiful morning.

We need to celebrate the beauty.  So I've made a pot of tea and set the table on our deck.

Aren't the dogwood beautiful?

I hope you have time for a visit.  I made some banana muffins with chocolate chips in them :)

It's  another beautiful spring day here in North Carolina, made by God just for us, so I am going to take a little time to enjoy it before I start my work day.  I hope you have time to stay a little while and enjoy it with me.
For those of you who are still waiting for spring, be patient.  It's on its way!!

You've Got Mail

One of my favorite movies is You've Got Mail. 

Yesterday I had a mindless job to do so I watched the movie while I worked.   In the last scene, as soon as the music, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" starts I always begin to cry. 

What movie always makes you cry?

Red and White

I made this red and white quilt in 2006.  Red and white is such a wonderful combination. Apparently a lady who lives in New York thinks so too because she accumulated 650 red and white quilts.  So last week, for her 80th birthday her husband had them all hung in a display,  in NYC so she could see them all at once.   It was open to the public.  I  would have loved to see it!

Here is a sample of what it looked like.  Amazing!!!  Makes me want to make another red and white quilt.

It was hosted by the American Folk Art Museum. You can see more about it here: display of red and white quilts.  When you get to the website, click on the photos it will give you a slide show.
Martha Stewart also blogged about it here
The funny thing was, the lady said she wasn't a about denial!

Have a happy weekend.
