One Happy Day

Recently, I have stressful days with my teen-age son.  His grade, attitudes, events at schoo, off-school, troubles with friends, etc.  In between these busy days, I found my joy.

I was on my way to grocery shopping and saw the beautiful rainbow in front of me.  I usually always focus on the road when I'm driving on the highway.  That day, I just looked up little bit higher and Voila! I was able to see the lucky rainbow even for a short time.  It disappeared three minutes later.  This little event made me so happy and the rest of the day became much easier to spend.

Then, when I got home, I received the package from England.  YES!  Those are the Tilda fabrics that I ordered about a week ago.  They are more beautiful than I ever imagined.  Maybe I should have got more!  I spent next 30 minutes or so to think what to make with these pretty fabrics.

I stepped out to my back yard and checked how my plants are doing.  It finally rained here so it feels very refreshing.  Flowers are blooming and new green leaves are sprouting.  The roses from the cutting my friend gave me, are doing very well with lots of new leaves.  The ones with no leaves (just stems) seems like they decided to live!  I see some tiny sprouts.  How exciting to see the nature grow!

I don't know the name of this tree, but they are in full bloom right now.  Although
I worry that my apple tree doesn't have anything going on yet.  Do you remember this apple tree had lots of pretty pink flowers last year?  I hope I get to see them again this year.

I'm having fun with Lori Holt's "Quilty Fun" book.  I picked some of the blocks from this book and made a table runner.  Of course apples are the main focus on this runner.  I used EQ7 to re-arrange the blocks and featured Pam Kitty Picnic fabric.  This cheerful collection from Lakehouse is the perfect match for this design!

I hope you have plenty of happy days!
Happy Quilting!
