These grapes on my Grape Hyacinths are green now but soon will be bright purple and gorgeous on the bush. The birds will flock to my porch in a few weeks to eat them up and then I will be cleaning up purple bird poop from my railings and porch floor. It's a ritual that we have performed for the last 16 years..they eat and we clean.
I just love weekday Spring mornings. Sipping amaretto flavored coffee, TV off, listening to birdsong and the ticking of my Grandfather clock, and browsing through two quilt books I just bought...and it not being a work day for me makes it even better. The coffe mug is one that I won from the Leap Day Giveaway that was hosted by Elizabeth at Such A Sew and Sew. I won the mug, a mug rug and fat quarters from The Way I Sew It.
I'm currently awaiting the arrival of another book that was written by my friend Pat Wys over at A Silver Thimble. It's a great book and titled Spotlight on Neutrals and can be ordered from her or bought at your LQS. I saw it in the making and boy it takes a lot of effort and hard work to put out a book. Way to go Pat! I will get you to sign it for me next time I see you.
I still have not quilted anything or even turned on my machine since December, but the time is soon coming. Once I finish up with all my schoolwork today I hope to get in that sewing room of mine and begin again. Visiting blogs, entering givaways and WINNING and ordering new quilt books has really inspired me!
Have a beautiful day where-ever you are! Happy Living! Happy Quilting!
Thanks for stopping by!
