Spring Has Sprung

Spring has definitely arrived in the Ozarks along with everything that comes with it ~~~ the fun of seeing new growth and flowering trees and bushes, beautiful flowers to plant and grass to cut.  We will be having a rainy weekend, but we need the rain right now more than we need blue skies.  The hummingbirds appeared at our feeder Wednesday. 

Our Little Olive has taken five treatments to attempt to slow down the progression of her cancer and to help keep her comfortable.  For the most part she has done well with some tummy upsets and appetite loss for a few days.  Today was a good day for her.  Our vet is very compassionate. 

Since Olive has been sick I've found it hard to concentrate on sewing.  I took a baby quilt top and a smallish quilt I made from some charm packs in my stash to be quilted.  My longtime quilter, Reggie, retired the first of this year and I'm trying her helper (who bought Reggie's machine).  I hope she does well with her new business.  I haven't been totally idle, just flitting from one thing to the next and finishing very little.

I hope everything is going well in your world and that you are enjoying a beautiful Spring.

Thank you for stopping in  ~~ Barb ~~

  1. I'm happy to see that you stopped in with an update on Olive and of course, yourself :-)
    When things in my world get out of wack, I tend to do just what you do...move from project to project, book to book, room to room...
    Be gentle with yourself!
