Spring has Sprung

I can feel that spring fever in my bones, my daffodils have started blooming!!
My mini daffodils are the only bulbs that have completely opened. 

These little blooms are only 1 inch across, about 4 inches tall.  I cut these for my daughter, she is a daffy lover.   

This week I started a new quilt top.  I am using a pattern from Kaffe Fassett's Kaleidoscope of Quilts called Morning Garden Quilt.  This fabric really makes me have spring fever.

My granddaughter turned 10 yesterday.  She had her first slumber party Friday night then yesterday she got her ears pierced.  In our family you must be 10 before you get your ears pierced.  That way you can take care of them.  It is a big deal to us and we make a day of it.   There were 8 of us that went to the 23rd street Body Piercing shop to support her.  When my girls were young they used a piercing gun.  Yesterday they used a large needle and did not numb her ears.  She did great!!

I hope to get my onions planted this week.  I am also looking for tomato plants to purchase but haven't found any yet.  I set my tomatos out in March in Wall-O-Waters.  These protect the tomatos from the cold weather and give me about a 1 month head start on the tomato season.  If I plant tomatos this week I will blog about it. 
Until next time,

what are Wall-o-Waters? and where do you find them? I like tomato plants but we will be gone July and August so If I plant them they have to be ready before that :) don't know if I will bother with any veggies this year because of that.

I saw the first daffodils yesterday in a neighbors yard. They were so pretty and it was exciting to me. I love your pics. I planted mine in a flower bed but I will move them later. I like them clumped up and growing randomly better.
I remember when I was around 13. I pierced my own ears. LOL It hurt like the dickens but I did not want anyone else to do it. Anyway, I wore earrings for a short while but eventually let them grow up. I think it is neat the way you all made a family tradition with it. I bet it was fun.
