I love this wild rose with the potato vine (not "sweet potato" vine) winding it through it. It will bloom through next fall.
It makes me smile when I look at it because it just seems so exhuberant!
Took Laddie to see Aunt Mary on Sunday; she had a fall recently, too. She is 88, but sharp as a tack even if very frail. I mailed her a copy of Anne of Green Gables yesterday and have ordered her a copy of All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot. If you've never read James Herriot's books, I can't recommend them highly enough. They are so funny and charming. The BBC had a series years ago based on the books which was also excellent.
I bought Quilt Toppings: Fun and Fancy Embellishment Techniques with my 40% off JoAnn's coupon and hope to glean some good information from it. Couldn't resist these buttons either...especially the square ones!
Monday, we had the sad news that my Aunt Janice died. It is sad, but it really was a release from a long and debilitating illness. My cousin will do the service tomorrow; he's a Methodist minister and grew up down the street from Aunt Janice, so it is most appropriate.
I've managed to finally get a little more work done on this baby quilt. All my projects have become accustomed to long periods of idleness, but they never complain. It felt good to make some progress.
