Service project........

My church sewing circle is going to be working on the preemie layettes for a local hospital on Monday.  I do the cutting and sewing at home and on Monday the other ladies will run the ribbons through the neckbands and fold the blankets.  Then a few of us pack the four sizes with a knitted blanket and hat in individual bags.  I got the large ones sewn last night after cutting for a few hours during the day.  (There is a link for the preemie gown pattern on my Label list on the right sidebar.)
My Amaryllis is in bloom.  I had forgotten that I had one with double petals.  I looked back in my blog and found that I had purchased that one in late fall 2013 and it bloomed Jan. 2014.  It had a bud last year but never bloomed.
My sister in law gave me several tiny starts for Bleeding Heart last year.  The squirrels immediately dug up some of them and they died.  There are 2 that survived and probably won't have flowers this year.  I'm just happy to see them.
A friend gave me some ferns a couple years ago and they are doing great.  I need to do a little weed control around them.  I was out pulling weeds yesterday afternoon in my back garden.  I do a little every day now in nice weather while we have low humidity and no mosquitoes.
