I do not think I will be getting much sewing done this weekend. I am power washing the porch and deck. I got part way done yesterday and hope to get it finished today if not Monday.
Got this much of it done Saturday – the stone area, the swing (to the left not in this photo) and part of the deck – we get so much moss going on the stone area – it can get slippery if you don’t take care of it now and then.
I will work on this porch area next – what has the roof over it doesn’t get near as bad as the open area.
This area really needs to be totally redone – some of the boards are getting bad even though they were treated – they have been in place for 20 years or more. I will clean them off too though so they won’t be slick and hopefully Mike will be able to get around to redoing boards next year – doubtful for this year – too much on his plate right now. This is the flower bed that I have mentioned I dug out and replanted – I used to have just roses in here years ago but then diseases struck and I got rid of them – except two that aren’t in the photo and two more on the edge of the deck above– then I had some veggies in here but it is shade all morning and late afternoon – sun only for part of the day so I decided to go with flowers and the mints lined up.
I did select the next hexies to baste for Handful of Scraps and well do that when I am taking breaks from outside – I can not just power wash with no breaks – my shoulders, neck and arms would be killing me!! the lilac color well be the eight pieces around the center.
I will continue to work on Winter Wonderland in the evenings.
