Yes, we have been quiet here for a while so guess I'll put in my 2 cents worth in. Here in NW Wisconsin spring is 2-3 weeks earlier than usual. The first "salty" has arrived in Duluth/Superior harbor 2-3 weeks early. Snow has been gone for 3 weeks; there's a bit of frost still in the ground. DH attempted to pull out 2 dying shrubs with the 4 wheeler but frost is holding the roots in ground tightly. He does yard work and I do flower beds and veggie gardens; all are done till wind blows in more leaves. Tulips, daffodils, etc are poking their heads up from the earth so I guess spring is truly here. Sometimes I feel like we are living on the prairie as we have had so much wind all winter and now. This week temps are in the 60's; no jacket weather.
On Saturday I went to the local greenhouse to plant the pot for the cemetery. I chose a spike and red, yellow, purple, and white flowers. We keep the pots at greenhouse as long as we want. I'll leave mine till Memorial Day; should be beautiful by then. Usually I don't get to greenhouse this early so very few plants were in bloom. Maybe I'll go back with another pot to get a head start.
Finished another quilt but haven't taken a photo yet to post. Bought fabric from CT a couple years ago and finally used it; has a quilting theme. I like to name and label my quilts; think I'll call this one "Just For Me" as I am keeping it for me.
I keep a quilt journal for photos of my projects; have 2 journals full. So, started making 2 new ones; a fun project for a recess from quilting for a bit. In the past I've made them for a couple gifts and sold one. When done will post photo.
Two members of my family need prayers; my youngest sister and me. Sis had breast pre-cancer 3 years ago having had a lumpectomy and takes Tamoxafen. Now she has cancer in other breast; surgeon is recommending mastectomy. Due to having had cancer previously surgeon is recommending mastectomy of both breasts.
I have just begun the same journey for the first time. New calcifications in both breasts. With sis on same journey and my DD a 6 year survivor I had a biopsy of both today; will get report on Thursday.
So please add us to your prayer list. God is good.
Thanks for listening. Will post results soon.
