I must admit to not doing much in the line of sewing today although I did get the 15 circles made that I needed to have to go with the 2 left over from last time.  I have 7 of the circles stitched – 10 more to go – maybe tonight?


I’m not sure how much I will get done tonight.  I think I need to spend a little time cutting scraps – somehow – as I knew – I have gotten side tracked and haven’t worked on scraps other than briefly late Monday afternoon.  I should try to cut a little bit this evening before I settle in on the couch for some tv.

I’ll let you know if I succeed in scrap organizing tonight.

WIP Wednesday

Today I want to get the black circles done (made) for the purple row.  I don’t know if I will get them all sewed on but I’m going to try.  I had two leftover circles already made so I just need to make 15 more.  Head on over to Lee at Freshly Pieced and see what everyone else has for the WIP Wednesday and don’t’ forget to check out my  giveaway – time is running out – winner announced on late Friday.


I would have gotten to it yesterday – but yesterday was grass cutting day!  One area:


Another area:




And there was more but I won’t bore you with all of it.  We have just under 4 acres and about 2 acres at least I keep mowed – thank heavens for our small John Deere riding lawnmower!  I had to get off the lawnmower when I was cutting the stretch right in front of the area at the bottom of the photo – I couldn’t believe what I was seeing!  I counted 13 red bud trees growing along the ditch – tiny – but there.  Today I need to get out some markers and get these trees marked so they won’t get cut down – how pretty they will be when they grow larger – I will have a row of pretty blossoms in the springs.


I actually had time to get a little quilting done late in the day and did an hour on Star Crazy – at this rate it will be well on six months before I finish it.
