Last night I got the row finished to add to the bottom of the Patchwork of the Crosses – now I need to get busy adding it onto the bottom of the quilt before I getting busy working on the row that goes down the side – a little longer than the one across the bottom. This photo was taken before I got done and I was too lazy to get the camera back out and take another photo – I’m sure you will see it again.
Also made more progress on the Bow Tie Medallion – trying to get back to working on it for at least a little while each day. I do wish of course now that I would have went with less quilting as always – I didn’t think it was that much until I get going and then of course it is too late to change the quilting design and I have to stick with it to the end.
And I am making very good progress on the second baby quilt. I am adding two more blocks to the end of each row as I get the rows sewed down. I think this one will be about 40 x 44 inches? something like that – the other one is bigger – longer anyhow maybe as wide as this one. One of this I will do straight lines ( I got my walking foot in the mail yesterday) and the other I will do with the Perle cotton and give it a try – I ordered a couple of those cute little balls of thread – brown and some needles should get here next week probably – I will have time to finish one by machine by then and start the next! Sounds like a plan anyhow.
I bought two packages of Bleeding Hearts last month and planted in two pots – flowering already – I am amazed at how fast these grew – I plan on keeping them in pots for a little bit and then when the ground warms up enough I will find a place to plant them outside – part sun/part shade – I will have to figure out a good place to put them. The weather will be nice after Thursday to put them on the porch for awhile – I do believe we are heading towards a spell of 60/40’s for awhile. (I didn’t expect these to grow so fast!) Does anyone know if they do best in more shade than sun? those are usually my best areas here to plant.
