I had several Facebook memories from previous years on this date show up on Thursday of my son’s crazy dog, Koopa.
Here, I had a nubby plastic furniture protector on the loveseat. That’s the signal for my older dogs to stay off of it. In the photo below, you can see that Lily took the hint and is on the floor in the corner. Koopa however, just worked around the situation!
Like many of you while we had a few warm days ( actually 2 days that went to 80+degrees ) we’ve had no normal spring weather here. Mostly rain, sleet or snow. My crapapple tree usually has blooms that start out a deep pink, then they turn to white.
Right now, it is JUST budding…no color yet. This next Facebook memory of Koopa jumping at the tree at the same time as now, only a year or two ago, shows the tree is about done….all white and soon to drop its blossoms. So we are behind for sure. ( Pit bulls LOVE to jump as you can see :)
I went back on the blog to see some milder spring days in 2016 around this time…..here’s a favorite photo when the blossoms were opening when they were supposed to :)
I added a few more leaves and berries to the third border of my Flower Basket Medallion. VERY cold and blustery out / I gave up and brought it in for a picture…the wind just kept gusting!
The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color suggestion of the month is yellow / gold. I enjoyed digging in to all of the lovely reproduction fabric that Susan had sent to me ( see previous post ) and I made an EPP gold Starflower and appliqued it to a background square.
Another applique block in the works from the Dear Daughter project at Sentimental Stitches….and more hand quilting progress on my Rose of Sharon quilt.
To see what others create this month in yellow / gold, visit Angela and other RSC participants on Saturdays.
To view other hand work projects, visit Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching.
