Hope you are having a fabulous week!


  1. Great colour combo and that sun and paper pieced bird are wonderful! Come on spring!!! We got a week of a great weather but alas, the rain is coming back in a day or two. Can't WAIT for the tulips in my garden to bloom, and the magnolia and cherry trees are just about ready to burst. Such a wonderful time of year :) Hope all is well with you ((hugs))
