A Hodge Podge . . .

of this and that!
Lots of little things going on but nothing that seems worthy of posting . . . therefore I've been silent again.

Actually having some issues with blogger and Live Writer and that just gets me frustrated and I move on to something else. 


I got a nice photo of the button jars that I'm working my way through.  Don't they look delicious!!!  I even went to a flea market and found a special button jar of my own - I'll try and get it filled and then show you.


Snow of May 28th?!?!!?  Actually once we got closer we found out that it was really hail that had fallen.  Thank goodness it fell before we got there and not while we were driving through it.


Very strange to be driving along on wet pavement and then through this.  It covered about a three - four mile stretch and that was it - back to regular pavement.  Weird!  The weather here is horrible - lots of wind and rain and it is expected to last for a few more days.  Farmers are pretty much done for . . . fields are too wet to get onto and even the ones they did get to last week are now too wet to germinate or the seed is floating away.  Not looking like a good year in this area.


I have officially finished quilting my niece's graduation quilt and just need to hand stitch down the binding on my brother's quilt.


Need to get that done by tomorrow night and get the two of them washed up and ready to head out on Wednesday morning.  The graduation is on June 4th out in Alberta so we've got a bit of a trek ahead of us - sure hope the rain isn't there also.


I did get to play in my scrap bags and have gotten blocks four . . .


and five done on the Bunny Hill Henrietta BOM.  I shouldn't say "done" as there is still all of the machine applique to do.  The fun part for me is choosing all of the different prints - I love rootin' around looking for that perfect piece.

Well at least this time I have a good excuse for being away for a few days . . . hopefully I'll get some pictures taken while I'm away and be ready to hit the blog running when I get back.

Have a great week!

Wow, did that hail damage any crops or gardens? Many years ago our garden was shredded in a hail storm and took a long time to recover - one tree still had scars 20 years later. Love the Bunny Hill blocks in autumn colours, I still haven't started mine but will get to it eventually. Black and white makes a wonderful quilt, the print with ants is a goodie!

I'm so glad to read I'm not the only one having problems with blogger. I sign in and it signs me out!
Your Bunny Hill blocks look terrific. I'm really enjoying doing this quilt. Talking of which, I better get this last block put together.
