Where's the Sunshine?

Last Friday, I visited my favorite Quilt store Strawberry Patches to purchase "Polka Dots" for six  seven (next post subject) Easter dresses. The owner Suzannne is a self confessed polkadotaholic. I had (I counted them) over 30 to choose from. No wonder it took me over 2 hours.
Didn't I do good to choose only 6?
  The white is eyelet that I had for the little jacket. My girls range from age 13 to newborn (Watch for next post)
I brought them home like this and plopped them down on the rock to take pictures.
Due to the gloomy weather we have had, it took me 2 days to get enough sun for pictures.
My Freesia had just started blooming and I wanted to post pictures because sadly they will be gone by Easter when I will post all my front yard pictures.
I know my neighbors think I am crazy.  I really got my exercise in getting these shots.  I am back in my sewing room, I see the sun peek out from the clouds, I grab my basket and camera and run the length of the house, plop the basket down again and the sun goes under a cloud. It was supposed to rain and did later, so I couldn't leave the basket. I can't even count the times I did this before I got what I thought would be enough pictures.
Boy, this blogging thing has really changed my perspective on things.

Okay, I can wait no longer....I am going to reveal the suprise for the next post.
My #10 grandbaby was born Sunday morning at 12:34am.  So.....I finally have permission from my DIL to post pictures of the baby and her family, so stay tuned....next post.... Baby Emmy.
