"We'll gather lilacs in the Spring again..."

As the song says, we did gather lilacs this Spring again! Actually, in all honesty, it was Dad who picked this deliciously sweet-smelling bouquet. :)

Dad and Andrew dug out the motorcycles they fixed up (they haven't sold them yet, obviously) and went for a ride in the fresh morning air.

I did not get any more sewing done today, as I helped Mom clean up the kitchen and worked on some outdoor projects (hanging laundry on the line; opening the greenhouse doors; doing the chores...) before heading to work in town for the rest of the day. This was what I worked on yesterday though:

I cut all the cute little square fabric pieces (that I got from my dear friend, Rachel,) in half,

...then I sewed one triangle together with another triangle that matched it and made all these squares. Later, I sewed all the squares together in one long line. I also cut out the dress material, so now when I have some time, I can really do some sewing. :)

That's all for now. It's late and I should really get some sleep! I'll leave you though with a few fun quotes that arrived in my e-mail Inbox today:

  • Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not
    putting it in a fruit salad.

  • The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse
    always gets the cheese.

  • Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity,
    they can train people to stand on the very edge of a pool
    and throw them fish.

  • When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire
    Department usually uses water.

    and last, but certainly not least:

  • Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than
    standing in a garage makes you a car!
