We were invited by a dear friend to attend the L.A. Philharmonic perform at the Hollywood Bowl. They served us a delicious dinner in our seats and then we were entertained under the stars to music from Beethoven, Elgar and Wagner. It was a fabulous evening.
I've spent a good portion of the week in the garden. The roses have performed so poorly this summer with our weather that I did a good cutback on them and fertilized them in hopes of warmer fall weather. To explain just how bad the weather has been for them, I was able to find about four roses that were decent for picking to bring in the house and I have over one hundred rose bushes!!!!
We celebrated two birthdays - one for our granddaughter on the 5th and DH's today. We gathered here for a big family BBQ on Sunday afternoon. It was a great day. I just love watching all the kids playing together. They are all such good friends.
Of course I managed to get a few bits of sewing in to finish off the week. One project was to embroider names on aprons for my DIL. She threw a surprise "make your own pizza" birthday party for our GD. She had an apron for each girl to wear and take home with them. I thought was such a fabulous idea.
I finished the quilt top for our newest grandbaby - pink with dolls!! I know she will love it as she gets older.
The second block in the Raggedly Ann and Andy quilt went up nicely. I am looking forward to the next block now.
I have also been working on a couple of bridesmaids jackets for our niece's wedding next month. No pictures of them yet as I am not quite finished.
