I have been on a mini-vacation with my sister for the last week. She is not a quilter, so I didn't get any quilting done. I did get some landscaping work done. My sister has the most beautiful garden at her home in Tennessee. She helped me plan a garden for my back yard and some landscaping for the front of the house. (We just had all the old landscaping plants taken out this past fall.) She promises me she will come back and help me complete the work in the fall. We'll see.....

I will be home for a little bit before I head to Fort Smith, AR, to visit my son. I'm hoping to get some quilting done in that time. I want to start a large wall hanging to put in my living room. Since my house is now updated a bit with bold, new colors (red, yellow, orange, off white, dark chocolate brown), I want to put something new (with a modern twist) on my wall. Oh, while my sister was here, I did some shopping for accessories for the newly remodeled house. I got a couple of big decorative vases that I just love. I also got some items for the new black, white, and gray bedroom.

Well, I'm off to clean the house a bit and begin cutting some pieces for the new wall hanging. I'll keep you updated as to progress (if there is any)!
