The wind – it’s back! Betty warned me and I told her to keep it out there but it’s here this morning making this a sewing, baking, cleaning day instead a work outside day.
If you grow hydrangeas you know they’re a real job in the spring to clean. Leaves land in the middle of the stalks making it necessary to reach in with a gloved hand to remove the huge hard clumps. You can’t rake effectively because the stalks reach so far.
But – in a few months they will be in full bloom and I will have forgotten all this hard work. If you have hydrangeas, do you have any spring tips for me?
I forgot to tell you the other day that we buried Colton. He has been in the freezer since he died last winter and now he’s resting at the north end of the garden.
Someone asked if Twin Sister actually had a twin and yes, she DID have a twin who was lost in the owl/hawk attack last August. My few remaining chickens are getting very very old and I can see the signs.
Diane was recently in an Ohio quilt shop and saw this little quilt from Sew Charming which obviously was made with charms.
The quilt I’m working on now, shown here
is the same design but a different size. I’m putting borders on now.
Remember Fluffybun, Cathy’s cat, who I agreed to take because she didn’t want to take her to OK when she moves? She’s a very nice cat but I just don’t need/want another cat. Would anybody like to have her? She’s an indoor/outdoor cat, well behaved and knows all the rules.
Another grouping of favorite pictures – some vintage.
Remember – If you don’t see your pet or quilt posted, please let me know. I try to stay current with photos. The other evening I worked at cleaning/clearing 7800 emails!
What a disjointed miscellaneous post! But I’m all caught up on photos so now I’ll clean up and delete. I’ll be working inside today – maybe bake some cookies! How about you – what are you doing today?
