Yesterday, I spent a lot of time sweeping the path, cleaning up leaves, pulling weeds, and trimming up the Confederate jasmine on the arbor. It was such a nice day for that kind of work, especially in the morning.
Here is a review of some of them a little closer.
In the afternoon, I went to a little nursery in Benton and bought some plants including two butterfly plants (milkweed) to go with my butterfly bush, 3 more basils, parsley, dill, begonias, sweet potato vine, verbena, etc.
Today, I have to get busy and get them in the ground.
I bid on two quilts for the AAQI auction, lost one (Michele's) but won the other. So here is a pic of Moonbeam by Cheryl Jordan of Corvallis, OR. I love it!
Materials/Techniques: Design created using discharge paste; outline quilted with metallic thread and beaded.
|Cheryl's quilt was made in memory of her father, who suffered from AD.|
Aside from the fact that I'm contributing to AD research by buying these quilts, I'm accumulating them for another purpose, too.
AND I'm finally working on another quilt to donate. I have 2 that never got mailed and want to finish the work in progress and make one more before registering them.
I'm trying to catch up on my blog reading...being away means getting way behind!
