April and pretty

It is beginning to look like spring - yeah!!. I do not like winter.

I was in Oakland last week and drove past this house and garden. These are the actual colors of the bark (purple blue), bushes and house color. How could you not stop and take a few dozen photos.

And in my own back yard!. The plant/flower - it reappears each year and only gets bigger and better. The Tea Cup/ bird feeder yard decor is by and from my sister in law, she has a way with decorating - home and garden. The view out my dining room is FAB - even if I do say so.

Introducing my latest quilt - The Other Down Under. 36" x 48", has been juried into "Beneath the Surface", an invitational-juried show which will premier at the Long Beach IQA quilt show this July. I hope the show travels because the collection of quilts will be fabulous.

Here is a detail - again with the birds. They honestly screamed to be included in this quilt. They are above the earths crust and below - so, obviously a portal exists. And my favorite line for all this is - and who's to say it isn't so.
