Yesterday I was admiring my primrose that are up and starting to bloom, and today we woke up to a covering of snow. My goodness, it was 58 degrees yesterday.......what is this about? It's spring in Utah.....that's the way it often is. For some reason I thought this year was going to be different....I guess I'm delusional.
I apologize for the quality of these photos, but I was in all kinds of contortions trying to take them.....by now you've come to the conclusion that this is not my forte'.
I do like birds and houses. You no doubt have come to that conclusion by now. I do love this house set on a hill.

Every hand is meant to hold another hand. This block originated, when one day while making my nursing rounds in my car and listening to the radio.....the Beatles came on with...."I want to hold your hand." I've since wished that I had made two different colored hands to symbolize the need to reach out in understanding and friendship to those that are not just like us.
Sweet love in the Spring.....
And of course my pride and joy....my children. They are Benjamin, Katrina and Abigail. I have a fun story to share about this block. I was in a quilt store in Ohio, when I spotted this pattern. I pointed out to the lady of the shop, that this fine looking young man who was with me, was the same fellow on the quilt block. What fun that was.

What a fine looking couple we are....:-)
And...By my hand 2011. Sweet and simple is a cherished possession that tells a bit of my story. Barring some disaster.....this quilt will outlive me, and so it will be part of my legacy.
If you should decide to make this quilt, find ways to personalize it and make it representative of your life. Everybody has a story to tell, and our quilts can be the medium in which we record our story.
"Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things in which smiles and kindnesses, and small obligations given habitually, are what win and preserve the heart and secure comfort".

And by the way, it is still snowing! Time to get a pot of soup simmering on the stove.
