Looking through my Webshots album, I came to the realization that I have finished exactly ONE project this year – my Blooming Nine Patch. How discouraging is that!
I have been working on a Mystery Quilt from Border Creek Station and have really enjoyed the process. However, I just finished putting some of the blocks together and was very disappointed to see that one of my fabric choices is all wrong – the stars disappear into the background.
I toyed with the idea of just leaving them, but knew I’d never be happy, so yesterday I went all over the place trying to find another fabric to replace the brown star points.
I came up with this:

Leo’s spring garden is starting to bloom and since I don’t have completed quilts to show you, I’ll share some of his flowers. We have lots of different daffodils:

I had a lovely Mother’s Day lunch at Sandra & Darren’s, followed by a visit to my Mum. I usually visit her in the morning as she gets more agitated as the day goes on – today was no exception. Happy Mother’s Day to all who are Mothers, and especially to those who have lost their Mother.
