And it is truly only a little progress with the
from my post HERE
Hopping about like Long John Silver with his one crutch
makes it a teeny bit tricky to be on small step ladders
trying to pin a quilt on the design wall. However I did a
reasonable job, I think.
The very bottom row is just pinned on the wall, still needs to be sewn
to the pink strip but I decided a break was in order at that
point. Two side views, couldn't go far enough back to take
a full on photo. Just one more row to go at the bottom, a repeat of the first
row but different fabrics.
I'd forgotten there was a border to go on so more of the
KF Dream fabric in Dark is on the way to me.
Coming out of my little studio I saw that John
had one of his old oil paint palettes upright on a shelf, I always
take a photo of these because of the stunning
mix of colour.
A scrap quilt in oils!
The garden is so overgrown right now, John is
carrying out an assault on the weeds and overgrown grass,
I'm hopping along taking photos.
The hydrangeas are just beginning to colour up so here's
a look at a couple of the flowers coming out on the
hydrangeas down the drive, the bushes are
huge this year. Sadly once the sun beats down in Summer
the blooms wilt like crazy, copious watering takes place then.
I'm sending wishes for a
to all in the USA but there will be a tremendous
number of people for whom there will be no celebrations, only mourning,
following the horrific fires in California with loss of loved ones
and their homes.
I'm thinking particularly of the destruction of
Paradise right now. To see the sights we have on our
news here brings tears.
