Yesterday I posted a picture of Teddy….it was a picture from a year ago….here he is yesterday

He was looking pretty shaggy!   He had a visit to see Julie at the Elegant Pooch today… he is now sitting on the quilt I am working on

Doesn’t he look distinguished….He also looks tired…his appointment made him miss his afternoon nap.

I found this great quilting song today

Happy Quilting/Gardening

    LOVE the song! Teddy is looking ever so dapper now…and the garden is looking lovely.
    Happy May

    The yard is beautiful! It must be a lot warmer there than here on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Teddy looks great.

    Can’t believe how springy it is there and we’re further south and it’s cold and nothing blooming around here yet!
    Teddy is looking great! I love that song, but the Johnny Cash rendition is great, too!

    I want a service berry tree and there is a reason which I don’t remember…something maybe about a certain kind of bird that loves it? Do you know, Tim?
    Things are beginning to bloom here too but not as quickly. Teddy is adorable, as usual.

      well the berries are great….taste just like blueberries….but every bird in the city loves them so I have only had a chance to eat a few….and they have beautiful bright red / orange fall color stay fairly small….will grow in damp soil and part shade..they have a lot going for them

    I wish spring was this advanced where I live. The flowers are beautiful! I just posted my first Solomon’s Temple block on my blog. So fun to piece!!

    your garden is looking good, things starting to bloom , spring is here!
    Teddy looks so handsome , even more special today, hmmmm could it be he is on an amazing quilt……I never tire of seeing this one….simply amazing, beautiful

    • timquilts says:

      It really is spring….sure makes a difference ….I think everyone seems in a better mood! Not sure if that quilt will ever be done but it is fun to work on

    I have a couple of wheeping cherry too. It’s a shame their beauty only lasts such a short time. Teddy does look very dapper. He needs a hug from me. Your flowers look great as does your quilt. Enjoy.

    • timquilts says:

      I guess part of the beauty of the cherry tree is that it is such a short display….and that makes you appreciate it even more when it does flower

    Your ring quilt is wonderful, what a treat to see it. I always quilt by hand and never mark anything (I do occasionally rip things out), I think I’d be institutionalized if I had to follow the lines….Your yard looks great, we have scilla siberica and species crocus all over the yard. We had snowdrops but they’ve gone by. The daffodils are just starting to bloom. I guess spring is here. The old joke about Maine is :.Two seasons here, winter and Fourth of July. Whoops I’m blathering…it is really interesting to see all the quilts. if my computer hadn’t died last week i think I would once again be on Facebook following the vintage and antique quilt bits…
