A Good Day - Scraps & Stitches
A Good Day
Yesterday was a good day! The weather is finally turning into spring, fingers crossed! Where we live they grow allot of daffodils and all around us we have fields of yellow. We also decided it was time for a change of car, so we sold the X5 and bought ourselves a Mini Cooper S little flying machine. It has been so long since I drove anything with this much power under my right foot. I am really going to enjoy driving again now. I do love speed!

Oooh, shiny! Nice car.

I love daffodils. Crocuses and snowdrops are the bravest flowers, blooming in the snow, but daffodils really signal spring to me. We've had a couple of warm days and the neighbor's daffodils are blooming beautifully. When I was in London last spring, I walked through St. James Park and there were just masses of them.

Yeah! Once you see the snowdrop the heart lightens thinking spring will soon be here.
We do have field after field of daffodils in this area. Just over from us on the next Drove, there is a 300 acre field. daffodils everywhere at the moment.

Cool wheels, babe! Those Mini Coopers are just so darn cute. I need a ride next visit.

How's the quilting going?

After the X5 thought might feel a little strange, but not at all. It is a fun car.

Quilting is going fine! Have all my stuff made for the auction, so I am working on another quilt top at the moment.

Mini-coopers are so cute! And yours is a wonderful color!

Yeah! It's a good colour not to attract the police.

That's so adorable. I love minis!

I have always like the mini, we had one many years ago though not as fast as this one. Vern took me out today, had her up to 105mph in the blink of an eye almost. Wow!

Nice car! I really like these new minis. Those and the new version of the VW beatle are so cool. Have fun! :)

I like the new VW as well! But the mini is so much more like driving a racing car. We are having fun with it.

Wow! Fab car! Very pretty shiny. And I love the colour - so nicely understated. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with her!

The daffodils are coming out here too, but strangely 'Daffodil Bends' on the Ripon/Harrogate road are a little behind - we have green, but little yellow. Give it a bit longer and they will be amazing, as will the bypass. They spent several weekends planting the bankings when it first opened and now it's really paid off. Makes a boring stretch of road absolutely beautiful.

I really do like when they plant flowers and bulbs while setting up a new road system. Where my sister lives in Garland Texas they did the same thing, only with wild flowers, and the state flower which are Bluebonnet's.
