Happy Monday!

 Julep and Derby at the front door looking pitiful
while I take cherry blossom pictures.
Selling a house is a pain in the neck.  
Keeping all these windows clean of westie
nose prints is a bigger pain in the neck.
 High Alert Squirrel On Deck!
Julep spots a squirrel and all I can say is
run ... squirrel ... run!
 Helen from the blog  "Let's Create" sent me this assortment of items
for our grand daughter {Kaitlyn}.  The American Girl dresses
& hat and blanket with matching pillows should be arriving in
California today.  Helen also found some tiny silk flowers
for me to use as embellishments on doll clothing.
Thanks Helen for sharing your creative talents.  
 Meet Alice
Alice is our real estate agents grand daughter who {as
you can see} loves American Girl dolls.  I made up
a big box of Easter and summer clothes for her
dolls.  I also made Alice a quilt for her bed with
matching pillowcase which she will get as an
Easter present.  I was told Alice is at that age
were she doesn't like her hair combed and
she doesn't like her picture taken.
 Heading to the Amish countryside after Easter
with my sister.  We're I'm having fabric shopping withdrawal
with an un-controllable desire to fondle new bolts of
spring/summer fabric. This is a sickness with no know cure!
 Have a great week ahead.  It's almost Easter bunny day!

It's a beautiful Sunday in Bozman

 Catching some Sunday morning rays on
this beautiful spring day.

 The pool nice and icy cold!
 I'll miss this view!
 Black Capped Chick-a-dee on Red Bud tree.
 More spring blooms.

Wishing you a super Sunday.

Today Is My Big 6-0 Birthday!

 Hey Derby ... you would think Mommy Katie would 
put down that camera and start reading the bazillion
birthday wishes she has on Facebook.
Sporting the first summer trim of the season.

 What a beautiful morning it was for turning 6-0.

 Julep & Derby started barking around lunchtime
because there was a flower delivery for little old me.
 Wilson's daughter Sarah and her two children 
[Katilyn and Cole] sent these to me.  What a beautiful surprise.
Derby wonders if anyone will send him flowers when he
turn 5 at the end of May ... and I said probably not ... you're a boy
and boys don't normally get birthday flowers.

 I love flowers and these are just perfect.

Wilson asked me what I wanted to do on my big day.
I said something simple like a pizza at my favorite
pizza joint in St. Michaels named Ava's.
So ... gotta run ... it's almost birthday pizza time.

Just A Quick Post Today

 If I can teach Julep how to vacuum
& dust the house it will give me
more time to play with fabric quilt!
 I purchased this collection of nautical fabrics
from one of the shops in Pennsylvania.
 Examples of the block layout.

 All cut and ready to piece together.
Here is the pattern information which can
be found at
Off to take the westies to the House of Barking Dogs
[which is the groomers] today for their spring cut.
Have a good one!

What do you do when your space is taken?

 So what would you do if your TV watching space was
 taken by an ultra-cute sleeping westie?
 He's not moving nor did he open an eye while I was taking pictures.
 Out like lights!
The answer to my questions ... what to do when
your TV watching space is taken ... is head to the sewing
area & sew American Girl dresses.  I've been working on
this selection for a few days but last night while the
westies were doing what they do ... I finished these. 

 Had enough fabric to make two of these.

Have a great day & thanks for stopping by.
