A tulip and a small gift

I've been dragging myself around in a stupor all day and I'm finally giving in. Between allergies and restless legs, probably due to my extra spring time activities, I was up half the night. This morning,I did a few chores, throwing out an overgrown spider plant and potting up the baby. I cleaned a couple of windows so I could put the screens on and open them.
After lunch, I added the final bits to a brooch and a bookmark that I want to send out in a gift tomorrow.

I had to push myself to finish the quilting and sew the binding onto the little tulip piece but I had to quit without hand sewing it to the back.

As i write this I'm snacking on a bowl of watermelon and cottage cheese. Really, it's one of my favourite things! I've put my feet up until its time to start supper.

Your tulip looks fantastic! I also love a good bowl of watermelon, although I haven't ever added cottage cheese to it!

I freeze watermelon and eat it frozen. A yummy winter "Popsicle" treat! Love your work!
