I skipped Wednesday's Whine of the Week. I'm winding up for a whine of epic proportions, so stayed tuned for a doozy, next week.
Aren't spring flowers incredible? Love it! After the dull winter months to see all that color bursting forth. Amazing! Gets me all inspired for gardening. We've been working hard in the flower garden. Moving plants, removing weeds. Rearranging the "furniture"- huge rocks and boulders. One of them weighed more than John and me, combined. But with the help of a crowbar and a dolley we managed. I'm sure it looked pretty comical, like trying to find your balance on a teeter-totter when the other person weighs more than you! We're both pretty sore, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel- and I feel confident it's not a train. John has been a huge help to me, though he does get a bit hesitant when he isn't sure that I'm sure. Who likes to move things repeatedly? He dug up my pond and we're trying to get it into its new location. It's a pretty big pond and this is its third location. But Daniel installed it the other two times so I don't know what his problem is. kids.
|jelly roll quilt that needs to be altered for me|
I love this quilt I saw in a quiltshop, recently. Like the colors and the design. Unfortunately, the pattern calls for using jelly rolls. I hate that. Is cutting 2" strips that hard? And I dislike sewing little squares to strips and then cutting off the excess. I just don't enjoy that- Id rather use squares and HSTs. Just me. I'm gonna graph it out and make my own pattern for it. It's simple enough. Aren't the colors great?
