Beautiful Gifts on One Flower Wednesday

Encouraging Words of the Day:

You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for you because of what you have done. ~ Psalm 92:4, NLT

We're back in El Paso, Texas and what beautiful days we're having. Spring in El Paso is a beautiful time of year. We arrived to a backyard of flowers in full-bloom. My husband is in heaven as he loves working in the yard (and I love that he loves this :)

Today he'll be enjoying planting more flowers while I'm off to have lunch and spend time with my sister Ida but before I go, I have flowers of my own to show you. It's "One Flower Wednesday" and I sewed these up on the way back to El Paso, three little 1/2-inchers.

There were also packages of lovely things waiting for me in the mail. Julie from "My Quilt Diary" wrote about the "Dark Sucker Theory." I had heard of this before and had lost my copy and Julie graciously shared her copy with me. I was thrilled to find it in my mail. Thanks, Julie.


Also in my mail was a beautiful mug rug from Maria who sent this all the way from Austrialia for the "Rugs With Friends" group. She also included two lovely fat quarters of spring birds and a pile of colorful buttons along with some rick-rack. Thanks for a lovely package, Maria.

That is all.
