I'm Still Alive!

Good day to everyone,

It has been a week since I have posted on my blog. I have felt terrible this week. I am dealing with sinus and ear pain. I am better, but still have some popping and cracking in my ear. I cannot tell you how much I have hated this. Nothing like having half of your head clogged and not being able to hear out of one ear. I do think I am on the way to recovery. I'm just hoping the other ear doesn't start acting up.

My big news....the beagle quilt is done! I finished the binding last night. I am happy with how it turned out.
I think Aeris approves. LOL Here is a closeup of the center beagle. Finally, here is the back. I really like how the back looks. Don't you think Kevin will like it? His birthday is in 2 1/2 weeks, so I finished in plenty of time. Now I am working away on my niece, Amy's quilt. I am about 1/2 done with the center of it. I hope to have it done by mid-May. Mom's birthday is May 26th. I want to get a wall quilt done for her too. Think I can get all this done in time? After these are done, I hope to just be able to relax with my quilting and work on whatever takes my fancy. I know with spring here, I will be busy in the yard and garden. Speaking of garden, I finally got our hardy veggies planted. I planted one row each of Pontiac and Yukon Gold potates, 2 rows onions, 1 row snow peas, 1 row sugar snap peas, a long row hilled up of carrots and radishes, and a row of lettuce, kohlrabi, and spinach. Now I am waiting for it to come up. My tomatoes and peppers are ready to go outside, but it is still too early for them. Here is a picture I took of my tomato plants right after I transplanted them into bigger pots. I was just playing around, so it isn't a great picture, but shows you how big they are. They are even bigger now. LOL
Callie was getting a little upset that I always have pictures on here with Aeris in them, so I promised her I would share some of her. Here she is laying in the box that some books came in. She just loves this box.

Well, I have lots more to share.... like a trip to JoAnn's, new baby chicks, a new purse, books from Amazon, and a hair cut, but things are loading too slow right now. I will try to get back tomorrow. Everyone have a good day. Thank you for visiting and please come again.
