I finally finished a quilt! Our younger daughter had this painting "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt hanging on her living room wall, so when I saw the reproduction on fabric at Center Diamond Quilt Shop, I knew what I needed to do. (Now if I could just get inspired to put the bindings on the ones that are waiting in line for me to finish them!)
I fell in love with the back fabric, and you can also see polka dot binding.
Just yesterday I finished this pair of socks. It took 3 tries for me to decide they just needed to be plain vanilla ones.
On a non-choir Sunday recently we did manage a get away with our friend Dianne to our favorite spot at Cannon Beach, Oregon. We walked to Haystack Rock at low tide
and also saw lots of birds, including this plover.
In between rainy spells we've been working in the yard. This is actually an azalea "tree" that our son gave me several years ago. It does itself proud every spring.
This camellia has been in our yard for many years, but it wasn't until this spring that a friend pointed out that its petals are offset. Isn't that interesting?
The Bleeding Heart is one of my favorite spring flowers, and this year our little plant has outdone itself. Now DH tells me it's time to take a walk so I will sign off with a wish for all of you: Have a wonderful Memorial Day!
