The Spring Fling Blog Hop starts on Monday! This is the one where we show the wonderful things we made with Sizzix flower dies. Here is the schedule. That's me on Thursday, yay!

I saw this beautiful yarn bomb at the Lab in Costa Mesa. Had lunch at the Gypsy Den with a buddy. It is the coolest place to visit!
I have been very busy with art quilt projects. I just finished a quilt for the Quilt Alliance. Can I show it yet? The theme was Animals We Love, and I chose my desert tortoise, Grandpa T, even though I also love my dog and my cats.
My project for the Sizzix blog hop is all finished. My turn will be on April 9, but different artists will be showing off their flowery Sizzix creations all that week.
And I am hard at work on yet another quilt. It's a little freaky because I've been making "components" but have been nervous about the entire look. Today is the first day I have felt encouraged that I am on the right track. Yay!

I am so behind in posting. Here are three pieces I whipped out especially for an exhibit that is currently going on in Long Beach. It's a mostly solo show by Joanell Connolly featuring her beautiful work, with an additional "wall" of 12x12 pieces by a few of her art quilt friends. It's at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Long Beach, 5450 E. Atherton St., Long Beach. I don't know how long the exhibit will hang, so see it while you can!

I am trying to get caught up with the plethora of photos in my phone. Here are a few of my favorites from a little gathering of local family members and a few old friends...

My daughter and granddaughter were here for a visit in February. It was wonderful spending some time with them, and they were glad to escape a bit of the bitter winter weather. Jack was left behind to take care of their farm.
Anyway, here are a few photos of our time together.
