I’m just home from church – I miss my church family and hope we can have normal church services this fall. We sang My Tribute today which is one of my favorites. During the preludes my flimsy copied music fell off the piano! Had to stop and retrieve it and go on – yikes!
A reader asked about the hostas I transplanted this spring – as you can see they’re doing well!
Another reader asked about my iron fencing. I bought many sections of this iron fencing about 30 years ago from a place in northeast Iowa – no, I can’t remember the name of the place. It was very expensive at the time but I’ve never regretted buying it because I can put this fencing anywhere without asking for help. As you can see each section connects to the next section with a post.
If the post hits a rock underground it’s easy to pull out and reposition. If you’re curious – 30 years ago each 4′ section cost almost $50! But it was so worth it!
Here’s a finish of mine. As I was cleaning I found many boxes of triangles all cut and ready to be sewn up so that’s what I did. The resulting quilt got this big.
It’s mindless sewing to make a quilt like this – my favorite activity!
Last night I finally finished this zigzag setting quilt – after I discovered 120 – 3″ nine patch blocks. This is the worst sewing I think I’ve ever done, doesn’t lay flat for one thing! I will never try this again and I won’t help anyone else with it either. I’m gonna quilt it and get it into the funeral pile ASAP!
Yesterday the dogs had a great time in the dirt pile – the pictures tell the story.
I gave Hazel a bath in the sink and before she was even dry, she went back to the dirt pile – ugh.
You could gather your Dirty Dozen projects today and get them numbered because on July 1 I’ll be drawing the first number. Get ready! We’d love it if lots of you joined in this “finishing” game – everybody inspires everybody else to buckle down and finish meaning new quilts at your house.
Hope you have a lovely quiet Sunday – we’re doing T-bone steaks on the grill tonight with a salad – can’t wait!
