My work on the porch continues with the power washer – I didn’t get done like I hoped I would – I took so many breaks yesterday – It is a very big area to cover and I just didn’t get done.  I will work more on it this week and hope to finish!  Or maybe I will wait until the weekend LOL – we will see.

I did manage to get the hexies basted for the next and final diamond but nothing stitched. I spent more time reading a book then stitching.


And there was more stitching on Winter Wonderland in the evening.  I am linking to Em Scrapbag – Moving it Forward and Cooking Up Quilts.


I was very disappointed to find all of my strawberries in the garden were eaten by something – I had finally noticed on Friday morning that I had about 10 to 15 large strawberries that I thought would be ready to pick on Sunday and when I went to get them I couldn’t find them! Not one – all that is left now are tiny berries not even a hint of pink color on them yet.  I was disappointed and no if I keep the plants I would need to make a netting of some mesh over them and it is too much of a bother with such a little area – not worth it in my opinion so I do believe I will be ripping them out and plant something that doesn’t attract the rabbits or whatever it was that ate them.  Sometimes that is the way it goes when you plant a garden – you learn what to plant and how much and what the animals want too!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Power-washing is, indeed, work!!!! And protecting your strawberries is crucial (we’ve learned that the hard way and have a totally enclosed metal mesh cage surrounding ours!!!!). Your quiltings/piecings continue nicely!!!

    It is always the same story. The wild life finds the garden produce ready a day earlier than we do!

    Progress is some tines slow, in both housework and stitching. Hope you finish off your power washing and get in some more stitching time.

    My hubby and I laugh that last year we planted a salad bar for the deer because they got all the good stuff out of the garden. This year the fence is much taller so hopefully we will get the bounty and not the deer! So sorry about your strawberries – they sound so yummy!
