What fun...& blueberries in the basement???

I wanted to thank all of you who have been kind enough to leave very nice comments to the 12x12 challenge piece. It means a lot to me that anyone would take the time to do that. I am really enjoying the posted pieces that yo have done as well. This is fun!
Now, since I have some packing to do-I wanted to provide something amusing for you all to get a chuckle out of- If there is anyone who is as sick of seeing Rachel Ray plastered all over everything in exsistence on every square inch of advertising space in the world you must go over to the side bar and click on Gallery of the Absurd- For those of you not familiar-this is a website of a very talented artist with a wicked sense of humor. This entry perfectly expresses my feeling on the perky little squirrel.
I must now go and pull it all together. It's amazing how a trip of 3 days can generate so much stuff to pack. Since Roger and James are working I will attempt to help them but first I have to help myself....ugh! Maybe I can call Rachel Ray-she's everywhere else, why not here?

Oh! I almost forgot-these are blueberry flowers that have bloomed in the basement and Roger used the macro setting on his camera to get this wonderful shot. I just love the pics he took and hope you like it too. He used to so a lot of photography and he's a pretty talented guy. Unfortunatley the blueberry bush is confused by the warm temps and since there are no little bees to polinate them-the flowers will come to nothing. We probably should have just left the bush outside but we thought it was going to be cold(hello-winter in NY???)so we put it inside to winter-over. Who knew???

Love the photo - I think it is hysterical that you have blueberries blooming and I am stuck at home because of a blizzard - well to Portlander's, it is a blizzard.

Rachell Ray? - Arghhh, that big mouth is driving me nuts.

Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Happy Snack! The blueberries would have been fine in a sheltered spot outside. They grow in Maine, right? You could try pollinating them with a q-tip or a paint brush. No harm, right?

Those flowers are so lovely and he got them so clear and detailed.
I want to thank you for your nice comment on my Challenge piece, also.

Forgot to tell you, my Rosemary is blooming on my sunporch in the midst of all our blizzards.

Things are a bit weird weather-wise. I'm out here in Southern California freezing my butt off and you've got warm temps in NY!! The little flowers are beautiful and somehow look Asian to me so very apropos of your quilt square.
And the link to the Rachel Ray picture was great! I'm also getting a little sick of seeing her perkiness everywhere I look!

The Gallery of the Absurd hits the nail on the head, doesn't it?! I love it. Got to look up what they've done with Martha Stewart. I for one would rather see perky little Rachel than Martha. She scares me! Who is that perfect???!!!! Hope things are well with you--I've been away from blogging and too busy to breathe lately.
