A Beautiful Monday

Well it is noon now, but hey!!  So very nice to have spring weather finally...yesterday was like summer; and today isn't much different. I have spent the morning cleaning and painting. Getting ready for tourist season here...and displaying my quilts.  After lunch, I am outside raking leaves out of the flower gardens....and tidying things up a little.

Here are a few pictures I took earlier this morning....

 A few flowers...lovely to see!!!!
 Not sure you can see the goldfish in the pond...there  are swarms of them
 My view of the marsh from the backyard
Next us the table topper that I did on my new longarm Tiara

 View of the back...
 The Roundabout finished except to bind...I would not quilt this in mono filament worked great, but you can't see the quilting.
 It gives a bit of a sheen on the black, but that is
 And the back... black; it goes with the runner, but not something I'd use much.
 The 3 blocks for 'About that Quilt' QAYQAL
Well; lunch time, then outside to get some work done and take in the sunshine.

Almost forgot; thank you to a few ladies who are sending out wins this week. I won a nice book, curved pins, and an EQ cd.  thanks gals. I'll take pics when I receive them....
