1) The robins must have checked their calendars and noticed that spring is supposed to be here...they are out in full force today. This photo shows how everything looks here when the snow melts...grey and brown and dull. We need the birds to cheer us up, so don't tell them that we're getting 10-15 cm of snow overnight!
2) These are the wonderful gifts from my "secret sister" which appeared at my sewing table over the course of quilt retreat! I have had a lot of fun using those fancy tweezers to remove the paper from behind the indian orange peel arcs. I also received a book called Crazy About Quilting which is the next book on my list for bedtime reading.
Thanks to my "not-a-secret-anymore sister" Nancy!
Tim Horton's and bring me a coffee made just the way I like it! I was really tickled that he remembered how I like my coffee, and thought to get one for me. And he didn't even want to borrow the car!!!
It's the little things that count when you're raising teenagers!
4) My husband ordered a quilt ladder for me for Christmas and it has finally arrived! He ordered from Robinson's Woodcrafts and this quilt rack is just beautiful...very solid, with a lovely finish. It had to be assembled, but it was easy and quick (according to DH) and looks great. I have been moving it around trying to decide where to display my quilts. Here is is standing behind my sewing machine area. It isn't staying there because the slanted ceilings don't support the rack evenly enough, but it was a great place to take a photo.
What's cheering you up today?!?
