Indoors & Out : Sewing & Blooms

The Rainbow Scrap challenge color for May is Pink. I English Paper Pieced a pink Star Flower and appliqued it. Two more Star Flowers that had already been sewn awhile back were also appliqued.  The Rose of Sharon quilt saw a bit more hand quilting progress here and there over the past week.

Linking up to So Scrappy for RSC Saturday and Kathy’s for Slow Stitching Sunday

Now for a bit of purple…the lilac bush is slowly coming in to bloom and my first little iris is beginning to open.

Just a few blooms remain on the crabapple tree:

Koopa is still running around it and jumping at the branches.

He’ll do a few runs and jumps around the tree then dash across the  yard to run up to me on the porch, then back to the tree he goes.

He’s here for the duration / thanks for all the support in regards to my last post :)

Meanwhile I wonder how much sewing I’ll get in for awhile, between the grass and weeds growing like mad and this book! :)

This is a TOME! It is about 9 x 11 with small print covering every page and it not for the faint of heart unless you are really in to this stuff. I am, though and thus far I find it fascinating.

“At over 540,000 words, this lengthy and eclectic treatise is considered to be one of the greatest ever produced in the field of esotericism.”

She delves in to ancient religions and societies and how they affected or influenced the religions and secret societies of today. While I am familiar with some of the material due to other writers or documentaries on You Tube, etc. much is new to me and highly detailed. I foresee many hours of reading out on the porch with pen and highlighter in hand :)
