Here is a block for April in the Bee-autiful quilting bee. Jenni, aka Cat Hair Quilts, requested a Katie Jump Rope block with an embroidered woodland scene. I added an extra embroidered piece for her to include in her quilt. (embroidery patterns from A Little Sweetness)
Here are a couple shots of our new dining room, before and after. It took many hours of primer and patience to get that dark, eighties wood trim painted white, but I think it totally paid off! I'm in love with the finished product. Still to come to the dining room: a new table/chairs (we left the old nice in the house we just sold due to buyer's request.... this is a junky old hand-me-down), more artwork, bookshelves, curtains and lamps. At least the hard work is done though, right?
Doc in the before... not a big fan of the dark wood and mint green.
And the after... Pretty aqua/gray!
And last, here is a picture of one of the beautiful flowering trees in a yard. We are so happy that spring is here!
