Spring Things

Hello Friends.
I hope that everyone is having a  good weekend. The sun has finally come out this afternoon. We had thunderstorms the last few days that kept things gray and cool.  I have made some progress on this little piece for the guild and I will hopefully finish it up in the next couple of days.
Yesterday was spent stitching and doing some cooking. One of my new favorite web pages is the Pioneer Woman's page. Last night for dinner I made the sour cream noodle bake. This is the 2nd recipe that I have made from this site and both are things that I will make again. If you haven't visited this site you should. The photography is beautiful.
This morning we changed over the bed. Good bye flannel sheets! I had bought this quilt set when I had a 30% off coupon at Kohls. It is lighter weight and will be good for spring/summer. I think it looks pretty great. Of course Beau had to get into the shot :) Little things like this make me happy.
   I hope everyone has a great week. Thank you for all your kind comments!

Chris, I absolutely love your new quilt set. Did you get it this year? The red accents would look perfect in my bedroom too. :) If still available, I may have to copy you!

Is there anything more homey and perfect than seeing a cat curled up on a bed? And the quaker sampler above the bed is gorgeous!

The little design you are stitching for the raffle is coming along nicely and I bet it will be lovely when finished.
