Frosty Morn...

Well today is another cool one...frosty one too.
Sure hope nothing has been 'nipped in the bud' as they say. Will know in a couple days.
If has will set it all back a ways.
Loads of stuff was coming up and buddin out... from the fig bush to peonies and cannas along with gladiolus.
Makes me wish I had been keepin a garden /weather journal so I could look up years past weather to compare. Ha!!
Oh well what ever will be ...will be.

I have been wondering about ANNIES. If they are as popular as they were a few years ago.
I have made quite a few different ones over the years.
Still think they are such fun.
My favs were the Pilla Annies, see above in header, I did and the Wreath Annies.
I had an Annie Christmas tree one year with all kinds on it.
I have looked and looked for a pic of the Annie quilt I made for a gal and can not find it.
Will see if I have still got my design.
Shoot with this cold may need to re-visit SNOW FELLAS! ;-)
