Sing it Louis!



I've been out with my camera again. When I look at these pics I can't help but think of Louis Armstrong singing "What a Wonderful World."



I live out in the country and these are 2 of the prettiest apple trees I pass on my way home. Absolutely breathtaking!
After I got home I wandered around my yard and snapped a few more pics; 




my apple blossoms from various trees in the yard

A few strawberry blossoms on our "lawn" that escaped the lawn mowing on Wednesday.



Petunia blossoms still holding rain drops.

Ahh indeed Louis; it's a wonderful world!

On the sewing front...  because of our construction project , yard work, and because I have been on the move so much there really has not been much time to sit and quilt or sew and I am starting to go through "withdrawal". Not to say I haven't kept my hands busy. When I sit in the evenings or in the vehicle I generally have my knitting with me and I'm making a little headway there.


I really "need" to sew though, so I picked what I am hoping will be a quick and easy project with some handwork and some machine. 


Here are the "ingredients" I will be using. Green calico and vintage ric rac from a yard sale find, a rescued bran bag from a bakery I worked in many years ago, a bit of embroidery floss and a free pattern from the internet. Definitely a low budget project. As soon as I get back from my walk and get a few household chores done I intend to make some headway on this project. Hopefully I will have some progress to show next post...stay tuned.
