I do love it all but it keeps me away from the computer.
I managed though to get His Eye is on the Sparrow, by Beth Twist framed. I don't normally frame the things I make just because I am always shocked at how much it costs. This time I figured I would frame this because for me it is such an accomplishment. I never dreamed I would finish. All told it was 4 years. From the time I started until this last week when I got it framed.
It looks very pretty in my dining room.
It was a cloudy day and the colors are brighter. Just a bit. This is a Maggie Bonami pattern.
I just love spring. I am tired today from all of the hula hoeing I did yesterday. But as soon as I step out the door and I can smell the orange blossoms and the fresh spring air. I can hear the mockingbirds and the meadowlarks and I forget how tired and sore I am and I go a bit crazy. I hope that this weekend I will finally get to planting in the ground. Its my plan on Saturday to finally get to spend the whole day in the garden. I have melons coming up in the seed trays under the lights and I would really like to get them growing in the garden outside. I am going to trellis so much stuff this year. I hope melons do good on a trellis.
Here is my driveway that I worked on yesterday. I love it when it looks so clean and really working down that driveway with the smell of orange blossoms is so incredible. The sound of the bees quietly humming as I work around the trees. Yes, I still have the bees in the wall of my shed. It will mean taking off the skirting and the outside wall and we haven't been home long enough to tackle that huge job.
I wish you all the best today this second day in April.
