Blue and White Bits and Pieces

Happy Mothers' Day to all the mothers out there!  We've got a busy day ahead of us with church and then going to visit my mother-in-law.   My mom lives out of state so I'll be calling after she's home from church.    Taylor, my granddaughter, is with us this weekend too.  She helped make the salad last night, her job being radish washing and gobbling up spaghetti and meatballs.

This is something I was working on yesterday while my husband took Taylor and the neighbor girl out for a bike ride over at the state park which is just a couple of miles away.  It's a small one, mostly river access for boaters, trails, a fishing pond plus very small camp ground.  We've actually camped there before with Taylor.   It was close enough to run home to tend to the animals!

The backing is the flowered print with the stripe as the binding.  It was a little kit that we got at an amazing quilt shop about an hour from the house.  It comes in a paper bag with the coordinating material and some instructions.  Just a fun project that is quick to do.

I also worked on the garden, finishing up planting the flowers and some other things up at the vegetable garden.  Some cucumbers came up from last year- being the good heirloom seeds that they are-- so I transplanted them into the new cucumber area.  I'm not sure if they will take or not but if we keep them moist they will probably do OK.

We've been loving the Roku box, after dropping our satellite.  Taylor is discovering creature features, yesterday it was The Creature from the Black Lagoon.  You have to make sure the little ones watch the corny B movies.

Have a wonderful Mothers' Day, all.
