The rains came last night, the air smells fresh and my plants are no longer drooping! I hope to get out and work in the garden at some time this weekend...maybe on Mother's Day. It's now time to plant some annuals and get some hanging pots. I want to plant white impatiens along our walkway. They will catch the light from the garage and will glow at night...I love white gardens at night!
The baby quilt is done...when my DH stops traveling and heads into the office once again, it will be going to its new owner. That picture is last. The other pictures are of my Amish Round Robin quilt. I don't have a good place to take pictures, so I did what I could. This is something I need to address over the summer when I paint my studio. I don't have much wall space in there...I'm thinking maybe those pinch clip quilt hangers. I could space them about every 10" on the wall over the door and could clip my quilts up to photograph. Any other ideas out there?
I made the row with the square in a square and the pinwheels. The other rows were all done by online friends from Arizona, New Mexico, New York and Ohio. I'm not sure what I'll do with it now that it's done, but I do love it! I'm sure my youngest daughter would steal it when I wasn't looking if she thought I wouldn't notice! :o) It will be hanging in the Kirby's Mill quilt show the first weekend in June. This is a display of quilts from local quilters. They call every year and ask me to bring quilts for the show...this year, because of Stash Quilts, Mavericks and Stashbuster, I actually have quilts to show! I'm so glad you are all here to motivate me!
Housework is calling my name...I've been ignoring it all week, I guess I should answer!
