Keeping Busy

My little 7 year old niece has leukemia (she’s doing well, we are waiting hopefully for the word remission in a day or so) Anyway, I have been knitting her a chemo cap. I found this lacy pattern and some nice soft yarn with sequins. I hope it makes her feel pretty!

Her mom says she loves the color!

I’ve been getting things ready to take in to Topeka this afternoon, 9 quilts for Warehouse 414 and 2 quilts for the Topeka Art Guild gallery. Looks like they should both be great shows, 414, “Spring Fling” with 12 artists and over 100 artworks and TAG. “Earth, Wind and Fire” a juried show, with prize money. If you are close enough, I hope you can come by and enjoy them. I will be at 414 for First Friday on the 6th from 5:30 to 8:30.

Spring has arrived with lots of rain lately and I have tried to pull some weeds. Usually they come up easily after a rain, but right now the ground is just TOO wet. The muddy soil holds the roots too strongly. Yesterday I bought some annuals that need a place to go.  This weekend should be better.  On the bright side, everything is bursting into bloom; the fruit trees we bought last year are covered with blossoms but the saucer magnolia, I think, didn’t make it.

    Good on you to have all those quilts on exhibit – hope it brings new admirers. Wish I could be there to see everything. Take some pictures of Spring in your little plot of Earth. I haven’t been there this early in the year. Love, Del
