Hey everyone! I hope this week finds you all doing well!
I'm really pulling for spring in a very big way and I thought if I wished on a bunch of rainbows it might help!
It surely can't hurt and if nothing else, they are very fetching, right?
You know, I've been very patient this year. I've tried not to complain too much, I've tried to embrace the whole "winter" thing, and I have to tell you....I'VE HAD ENOUGH!!! There, I've said it and I don't regret it! It is time for spring, warm weather and leaves on the trees again! I don't want to start my car 20 minutes ahead of time, just to drive it to the corner! I don't want to scrape even one more window! I don't want to fight bad roads and even worse, bad winter drivers, just to get to work everyday! I don't care if I live in Michigan and should be used to this kind of stuff, winter needs to bow out gracefully! Whew! Do I feel better! But, as usual all the complaining in the world won't change a thing! The weather will do what it wants, regardless of how we feel about it, but I'm still going to keep my fingers crossed.

Show & Tell
Here is a beautiful quilt from one of our readers to view! Thanks to all of you that submit and share your quilts and stories with us! I know everyone enjoys them as much as I do!
This is the first mystery quilt top I ever made and I was very pleased with the end result! When a very good friend was diagnosed with cancer, I quilted it for her. I hope it gives her comfort during her long months of therapy. Since the top was done ahead of time, it didn't take long to finish it. She was so excited about it and appreciated the personal gift!

...credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
...your life can be changed in a matter of hours, by people who don't even know you.
...the clothes I like best are the ones with the most holes in them.
...it's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.
...two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
...it takes years to build up trust and only seconds to destroy it.
...you can do something in an instant that will give you a heartache for life.
...even when you think you have no more to give, when a friends cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.
