I am hoping to post a few more these next days. But then it's off to South Carolina for Memorial Weekend. I am sooo looking forward to that.

I've been a bad blogger. I have had so much happening at the home front that my computer time is nill. We have been trying to sell our home for 2 years....yep 2 years, and we already moved to our new one...so 2 mortgages. The market isn't good and it's even worse in a town of 20,000 people. This week I felt a bit low about all of it. We have to put more into it and lower the price. By more I mean take ALL the wallpaper down ( I Lothe removing wallpaper) and no I didn't put it up!! It was there when we bought the home. I never removed it! So now it has to come down. Plus we planted red geraniums to decorate the front, changed all the lighting to brushed nickel fixtures and the list goes on and on. Oh and did I mention my husband was out of town? well he was and I am was left to hold down the fort, work and take care of my children. Boy do I miss him when he's gone! Today we managed to get our garden in, plant several annuals and a few more perennials. I managed to finish this table topper and I used Moda's Objects of Desire charm pack. It's a Sandy Gervais pattern. I think it says Spring! or Summer!....or Fall by the time I get it quilted LOL! I have also been tempted to push some buttons...retail therapy since I couldn't/didn't get to market. Someday I will...someday...until then...I am feelin' these..Swanky and Neptune to use with my new book Stop, Drop and Roll and a Wonderland honey bun to use with a new Thimbleblossom pattern called Pint-Sized.
