The week has been busy with birthdays - my brother, my DIL and a grandson. Lots to celebrate and no pictures to share because I forgot to grab my camera. Such is life.
I spent two days in the garden with weeding and removing spent summer flowers. By the end of the day I wasn't sure whether the body would even go upright again, but it felt good to get the jobs finished. The reward is when the blooms appear in appreciation of the hard work.
My flowers for my How Does Your Garden Grow quilt-along did not reproduce as quickly this week. I only added one and a half flowers this week. I think I am ready to change to a new color this week as I believe I have enough yellow ones.
Speaking of yellow flowers....look at my gorgeous orchid that is blooming. My father would have loved this one. He had a huge greenhouse in the backyard where he raised prized orchids.
I did manage to work on the last Christmas stocking for our darling neighbor girl. I just need to line it and add the hanging tab. Santa will be pleased to know where to place the goodies this year.
Lily Pad Quilting had a giveaway for a collection of fat quarters and I won!! I am thrilled with these fat quarters and I really love the line of fabrics. Thank you so much to both Lily Pad Quilting and to the Fat Quarter Shop for being the sponsor.
We've been trying to get lots of grandchildren sleepovers and one on ones in before school starts again. This week it was this little one's turn. She had wanted to come over and make bread with me. We had such a great time and lots of giggles as well.
I have to share what was in our neighborhood this week. They had a vintage car show and this pulled up. It was a food vehicle, but I thought it was cute. Enjoy the week!
