For those of you who celebrate Easter - Happy Good Friday. My company counts today as a holiday so I have a lovely 3 day weekend. :-) Mostly it will be spent doing a bunch of stuff in the yard and house but I did get up early this morning and put together the 1st of the Heartstring tops from the blocks that were sent to me for my birthday. Sure was strange to NOT have to fight Sam off the top to get a picture. :-( But eventually I'm sure one of the others will step up and take the position of Chief Inspector of the Quilt Quality Control Department. As you can see, Charlie did try to help with the assembly process. At least SHE calls it "helping" when she tries to curl up in it as I'm sewing the rows together.
I looked out my window this morning and saw I had a visitor. He lives across the road so in a bit I'll go see if anyone is home so they can come put him up. If not he'll just spend the day eating on my other lot and they'll come get him when they get home. It's happened before and he rarely wanders out of my yard. I have LOTS of nice green grass for him to eat and his pasture is pretty bare so he knows a good thing when he sees it.
I just had to share this photo of the sunrise I took on my way to work yesterday morning. Don't you all wish you had a morning commute this lovely? You have to pull it up full size to appreciate the full beauty of the sunrise over the cow pasture with the wildflowers at the edge of the road. It's so beautiful some mornings I just have to stop for a minute to appreciate the beauty of it. And just take a look at that sky! For those who thought I was a bit odd to choose pink, purple, and gray as the colors for my Row Swap just look at that sky and you can see God thinks it's a pretty good color combo too!
