I raked some gardens today to remove the leaves that ended up in there over the winter. Although I would love to work out in the yard all day when it is like this, it's also a good time to do some spring cleaning inside. There are all those corners to clean! I have a quirky thing about cleaning the corners of rooms first ...because it's easy to clean the middle of a room, but the corners require moving furniture! I felt authenticated the other day when a real estate blogger was discussing this very topic!
Our real estate business is very busy this spring! We love this good weather for showing our listings and working with our buyers. I'd take lovely spring days all year long, if I could! :-)
So, with real estate and springtime outdoors work, I sew at my machine in the early mornings or when I can squeeze in a few hours during the day. I love what is currently on my design wall and hope I can show it to you within the next month or so, when I have the top all pieced together! I am sewing hexagons, or hexi's as they are called in the quilting world, at night. I need about 1600 of them to complete a quilt top. My hexi creation may end up as a wall hanging instead, if I tire of making hexis! But, for now, I keep sewing them at while I watch TV and they are a great carry-along project!
Thank you for stopping by to read my blog. Until we meet again, may the Lord hold you in the hollow of his hand.

I fussy cut the flowers from the designer paper and popped them up on foam.
The metal gears and the flourish on the body of the butterfly were silver.
I "painted" them with a Sharpie.
