I am not sure how..

..but suddenly 2 weeks went by!
There were so much going on  this month during my Dad's visit, us going places everywhere between Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Diego that it sometimes did not feel like vacation even though it did look like vacation, weird.. It certainly feels like I need another vacation after the vacation I've just had, but it is not an option, so I just signed myself up for a yoga class to find some relaxation. No more vacations for me, please..
I really want to get back to a familiar life routine, find that new year resolution list, go through hundreds of pictures, start a new quilt and open my sketchbook. Missed my blogging, too!
In the meanwhile my favorite plum tree is getting ready to bloom. Always breathtakingly beautiful, every year it starts spring in the desert with the fragrant little blossom.

Tree House Quilt

I am so happy these days because I completed the Tree House Quilt.
I made it for my dear friend S.
It has everything I like - batiks in natural shades of brown, green and red, a lot of flowers, some patchwork and the house block in the middle, representing her house that is always full of friends, good food, laughter and flowers.
S. already found a perfect spot for it - in her library, next to the book shelves, cozy love seat and the window to her lovely garden- everything goes together perfectly. I am having fun now taking pictures and adoring the final view.

Today is very windy in Las Vegas and smells like spring.

There is lightness in the air and I feel like going on a road trip!
