There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy....

I saw this on Pinterest yesterday, and it caused my heart to sing....I guess it's called counting our blessings!
I received these photo's yesterday from my friend Sandi, who was at the fabulous Buggy Barn show which is held every year in Oregon in the middle of the wheat fields.  I've never been able to attend, but it is certainly on my to do list.
This version of 'How Does Your Garden Grow' was made by Pam Soliday who is one of the owners of the quilt shop.

This is Sandi's sister's version.
And, here is Sandi's.  These 3 gals worked on them at the same time but over a distance.
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is a sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is life, fight for it.
-Mother Teresa
Life is certainly all of these things at some time or other.  Hope you have a happy hearted day! :-)


  1. Buggy Barn is further north in EASTERN WASHINGTON!! A fantastic annual event; too bad you had to miss it.

  2. How fun and inspiring to see three different versions of your design! They are all beautiful and I love how they are all quilted differently also.

  3. So nice to see how the quilt looks with different backgrounds, both very beautiful.
