June Is Such A Beautiful Month....

Roxie the dog and Mango the cat hanging out.  These two, who bully and irritate everyone else in the house (we have a lot of pets!) absolutely adore each other.
This is my work on Pam's  block from Crazy Quilters International's Fabulous First Timers Round Robin #15.  I embroidered and beaded the fish, worked the seam, embellished the leaves, and added the orange flowers. I have sent it on to Linda and can't wait to see what everyone else does with it.
The bleeding hearts are blooming all over my yard
This is my first attempt at a dragonfly. You can click on the picture to get a larger image.  The wings are angelina fiber.

Crazy Quilters International is hosting a fundraising event for the quake/tsunami victims in Japan. This is my block for the Hearts and Hands To Sendai charity.

     Spring is really here when my girls start overloading me with eggs!  
     The little spotted hen in the middle's name is Twilight (named looong before the book and movie were even thought of!).  She is over ten years old and still gives an occasional egg.
We have had an unusual amount of rain and snow this spring.  Everything is trying to bloom in spite of it all....The dogwoods make me happy.
