I thought I would remind you all what my “Uncommon Common Bride” looks like y’all know I started the Common Bride quilt and then kind of changed my mind after I got going on it and it has been set aside for sometime now – I have not forgotten it! I never forget something I started! I just was undecided in how I was going to finish it and for sometime now I had thought to finish it off as a tablecloth quilt. Here it is on the table – all wrinkled from being folded up and put aside for so long. I decided to add one or two more borders – pieced/appliqued? not sure and call it quits. When I decide what kind of border or two it will have I will let you all know. It will be a “table quilt” a thin batting and quilt like usual. It will be removed of course and placemats put down when food on the table.
I finished the Floral Fantasy block yesterday morning. That makes 6 done and 7 more to go. With the flash the blue turns out perfect.
When it was a little different setting in light the blocks are all looking so much darker! I guess wherever I end up having this large wall hanging I will need to make sure it has plenty of light. Please excuse how they are all overlapping each other up on the wall – just don’t have enough room to spread them out good without getting out the portable design wall which I really don’t feel like doing.
Pretty daylilies opening up in the flower bed that I took apart in the spring and never quite got back together – I will work on this in the fall.
One of the smaller sunflowers open and facing the direction of the porch so I could get a photo better – I will be pleased to see that really tall one open – I’m hoping for a really big flower. The one that is open is bigger than my hand.
I am so glad I put these tomato plants by the workshop wall – I have had to support them a couple weeks ago as they got taller than the cages and were bending over horribly. I have never had tomato plants get this tall – I did toss in some fertilizer in the soil and these are fresh raised beds this year – but wow, looking at them one would think I had a green thumb which I don’t.
I have a cucumber plant down here underneath the sunflowers and the cucumber plant decided to attach itself to one and start climbing – if you look towards the bottom there is a cucumber growing there!
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
