I knew this would be how it would go the minute we got some nice weather – I overworked and knew it but after another nice day today it’s going to rain for 3 days. So I just kept working. Took quite a few painkillers so I could get out again today. But first I’ll show you the biggest job we finished yesterday – the hydrangeas in front of the shop!
Here’s the “before” picture – last fall I had my first knee replacement surgery and this did not get cut back so it was a bigger job than ever before.
Not perfect but good enough!
If only I had some lily bulbs to plant in this spot!
I put the picture of Chicklet and his gal pal on Instagram. Look for etheringtonmary- I can’t figure out how to send you a link – duh – sorry!
Some finishes – we’ve all got time to catch up, don’t we?
And my #6 in progress – an improv quilt needing more pieces – still working.
Look at all these projects – one per box – next year’s Dirty Dozen!
I’m going to write up this little blue plaid quilt as a pattern for those of you wanting to order it – just too many drawings and measurements to post on blog.
Hazel was outside with us the whole day yesterday which she is not used to – just like us, she overdid her activity and she needed a bath. After a bath we always play “towel” – I thinks that’s the only reason she allows me to bathe her – knowing what’s coming next!
She was so tired last night she was nearly sick – couldn’t eat, shivering and wanting a lap to sit on. I understand.
Tomorrow I will draw the April number for the Dirty Dozen game! We will start again in July for any of you who want to join us. I think it’s been very successful – for me, too.
Is anybody besides me anxious to visit the nurseries for bedding plants? I’m lining up my pots now!
Someone asked about this gate leg table –
It belonged to my Aunt Charlotte who painted it another coat of orange every spring! I had it stripped and put a white grain stain on it but now I think I’d like to have it painted. I hate to paint tho’ so there it sits.
Time to head outside – tomorrow we’ll rest.
But every day remember – BE STILL.
