On the latest occasion that Brent was here it was chilly and rainy…not much to do but eat, snuggle, or goof off…
I do not like the heat so these mid-week cooler temperatures have been wonderful. For two days it was downright chilly in the morning, requiring a sweater, and the temperatures did not go over 65 degrees in the afternoon. Today it went to around 72 and I see days on end of 90 degrees coming up so I appreciate this.
I put the hand quilting on Scrappy Granny aside for a few days and worked on some applique. The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month is yellow. I’d finished up another Elizabeths Pride block as well as a few Little Baskets.
When I’d started the baskets, the idea was that when I had the fabric out for an Airship block, I’d cut a basket or two as well. Then I thought to follow the RSC color suggestion of the month.
‘ Putzing’ around in that manner, I counted up my blocks thus far. I would have 25 Little Baskets and 12 Airships once I finished this one…
I finished it up as I sat and listened to our former FBI Director, James Comey testify today. I find him to be a person of the highest integrity. It seems that everyone on the committee felt the same. Should it be one persons’ word against another, I would go with Comey :)
Now the quilt is pulled back out. I had finished two blocks and started working on the sashing and border areas.
Outdoors while it seems that I just weeded and mowed, it will all need done again soon due to the recent rains. I purchased no flowers from a nursery this year aside from a six pack of impations for a planter on the porch. Everything else has been seeds in the ground. I’ll see how they do down the line…I see some coming up in some locations and none in others.
The perennials are doing well right now…this is the time for daylilies, foxglove, batchelor buttons, roses, spirea bushes, daises and more to be in bloom.
I hope that you are enjoying these last few weeks of spring :)
