Mulch anyone???

Hi All -

It's been a while since you've heard from me!!! With spring, the mulch pile in my driveway (2 pickup loads) has been calling. I'm systematically wiping out front yard grass (much to my husband's dismay - but he doesn't mow it!!). I've made some large beds and will plant some perennials soon and it should look nice. Lots of work, but I must admit that I do enjoy working in the yard and getting my hands dirty!! As a result, though, my quilting has been neglected. I'm working on two baby quilts and also trying to keep up with my UFO list (I still can't find February's project!). Our guild meeting is this Saturday and I've got a class to go to before the meeting. I was supposed to have my applique part done for this three-part class, but, guess what??? - I haven't done it. This week is paper piecing, which I haven't done before, so I hope I can just wing it and do that part and add the applique later - oooh, don't you hate students like me!!!

Here's a photo of our redbud tree in front of our house - I LOVE SPRING!!!

Take care and keep smiling -

Hi Judie,

I'd rather quilt than mulch any day - it keeps your hands so much cleaner and you don't have to bend over too much.

Oh I love to work in the yard too!!!!!!!!!!!! I have planted hundreds and hundreds of plants on our 3 arcres and bought verrrrrrrry few!!!!!
I am working on a vegetable garden right now. I have some already growing outside and some seeds coming up in the house under the plant table.
Happy Spring, Fern
