I'm Tired !!!!

It's exhausting trying to be like "June".
My basket group is having a birthday luncheon today and I volunteered for dessert. I am just getting into baking and decided to make cupcakes. I had a good time and hope they taste good !
For my next cookie I made the bars on the back of the bag of butterscotch chips. Ok but I won't be repeating too soon. I think part of baking is having some failures so you learn what's good. They aren't too bad - I'm managing to eat them just fine.

Then there is the next quilt square. The fabric for the squares is part of the kit so every month we get a small pack of fabric. This would not have been my color choice but I think it came out ok. When I selected my colorway I didn't notice so much brown so I have a feeling that when it's all done this will not stand out. Just when I think it can't get any harder it does. Wait till you see the next square - I'll be lucky of I get it all going in the right direction.
So things have been busy around here !
This morning for the first time in along time the sun was shining in the morning (it's usually cloudy) and there were two robins in our yard.
Spring is coming !
