If this doesn’t work, I’m signing off for the day. First topic – weather and how lousy it’s been. Today is sunny but the wind is very strong making outside work more than difficult. I did work outside on Monday and weeded the new peonies by the barn. I transplanted them last fall, they came up nicely this spring and then Emma laid on them and broke them all off!
They came up again and I pulled out all the grass and found a makeshift fence until Rick can help me.
Here’s what I did with the clumps of grass – I planted the spot Rick dug up when he moved the fallen tree. It’s worth a try – this place is a constant work in progress!
I imagine many of you have been working on t-shirt quilts for graduating grandchildren. Brenda A. finished this one for her granddaughter, Liz, and it was still “hot” when she gave it to her. I love how they’re all pieced together instead of in rows with sashing.
I planted this bird bath last week.
Worked on a small quilt on the longarm so I could try matchstick quilting, rows of stitching close together.
Made one small Ohio Star block after I was inspired by the rose breasted grosbeak that I held in my hand. The feathers were such a beautiful shade of rose pink with black and white.
I went after groceries today and I took my big bags as usual and every cashier mentions them to me.
I made many of these handled bags after seeing a tutorial online. I have quite a few of these great bags with all the animals on the front. I can’t offer to make the bag for you but if you want to pay the postage, I’ll send you an empty bag. If you’re interested, leave a comment.
After having much trouble downloading photos today, I’m remembering to ask you about bookmarking. Many times I’m asked to repost or look up a post for someone and another reader kindly helps me instantly with the picture and post we’re looking for. If this is you, tell me and all of us how you mark a post you want to save. Or how do you categorize older posts with a photo that you’d like to see again down the road. We can all learn from each other.
And look what UPS brought me today – the first proof of our next new book! How exciting! Martingale employees must not sleep! They have new books all the time and I need to review a few for a giveaway very soon!
I’m going to quit this post and publish it while I’m ahead!
