What's next on the to do list?

Yipee!  I got my mother's quilt completed and mailed in time for Mother's day!!  I also finished the crib quilt and another project I started in between those two..... you know, one of those impulse projects to clear the mind. Sometimes I have to stop working on a project because I get stuck and can't figure out what I want to do next on it - so I either hang it up to stare at daily or put it close by and start working on something else.  This keeps it in sight so I can look at it and hope the next step will come to me. When it finally comes to me I can't help but shout "I GOT IT!" and by now my husband and son know that means I'm about to hit the sewing machine like I'm in a race. But isn't that a great feeling?

I compare it to my gardens I have around our yard. Not only do we have a fabulous vegetable garden,  I also love to plant native plants and at least 1-2 almost native plants that bloom beautiful flowers the butterflies and birds like to visit. I plant them in hopes I will be rewarded with a yard full of green leaves and colorful flowers and butterflies flitting about or my favorite is our annual hummingbird visits.  Hummingbirds totally fascinate me. I can't wait till they return for the summer. Back to the gardens, I have attached a picture of my passion flower vine blooming - I only planted it about 5-6 weeks ago and I am getting blooms daily! Plus I added a picture (not a great one, sorry) of the quilt I made for my mom. I know it isn't perfect but I like it.

Well, I better get busy taking pictures of my items to put on Etsy before I find something else I 'must' do. Hope you are having a fabulous day!
