The weather in St Louis this weekend was FABULOUS!  I didn’t sew anything except a leaf or two on my Vicksburg block so the design wall looks the same as it has for the past two weeks! But other quilters have been busy and you can check them out at Judy’s Design Wall Monday post.

In anticipation of the growing season, my DH purchased a rain barrel 🙂  I’ve been talking about them for a while and there’s a special deal going on for Belleville residents, so he jumped on it.

You can get details at the Prairie Rain Harvester company but it has an overflow hose which not all rain barrels have.   We get to pick it up on May 1st, woo hoo.   Now I just have to convince him we don’t need ours painted like this one 😉
