Spring is in the Air...

last weekend we had 60-70 above O! so wonderful to feel the warmth and sun. rejuvenating to watch see and hear the signs of spring come alive..

Grandbabe #4 due June 4th and growing..

I stopped over at Auntie Pat/Uncle Jacks for a visit and had Auntie show me some of her vintage quilts her mother had made.. My phone lens was dirty so pictures aren't the best.

Auntie Pat is the QUEEN of scrap quilts and has saved and used clothes that were her mom/dads, her children's and more... she is working on this scrap quilt now.. 

 just wanted to check in with all of you my blog friends.. I'm trying to get back up on the horse as they say, I'm hoping Spring will help me...   enjoy your day!                                  Jody
