It is no joke, these are rocks, but they are beautiful. The high water in our river has receded and our beach is above water. Every spring brings a new crop of rocks, some for skipping and some some for just looking at. These are just some of the rocks on our beach. I love the colours and the textures and the stripes.

On our walk today we saw pussywillows. They are always a sure sign of spring.

I have been working on a few projects. Some are a little silly and some are useful. Below is my sock owl. I got the idea from this website, http://httpecho.deviantart.com/art/Sock-doll-tutorial-98753371?offset=10 . I thought he was pretty cute.
The other project that I completed last week is a book. It is a nutrition and fitness journal. I have looked for a journal to record my fitness and healthy eating progress and goals. I haven't found anything that I was happy with so I made my own.

My Disappearing 9-Patch
This is the Disappearing 9-Patch quilt top that I finished at our February retreat. My January post, http://photosandfabric.blogspot.com/2012/01/my-quilt-retreat-project.html shows the stages of making this quilt. It is a great pattern for beginners because it is so simple. This quilt is for one of the bunk beds in the boys' room. I am making another quilt for the other bunk which will be the same pattern and the same fabrics but the fabrics will be arranged a little differently. I am hoping this cheery sunflower fabric will brighten up the bedroom that my children fondly call, The Cave!
Speaking of sunflowers, I bought my first seeds this week!
