Yesterday I finally got done with the power washing of the deck, porch, and sidewalk around the flower bed- it took all day as I had to do it in between rain storms. I started in the morning and was ready to take a break as I shut the machine down I could hear thunder in the distance and it had been getting darker so I went in the house to take a much needed break and it started to pour and lots of thunder. After lunch the sky turned blue again and it warmed up – I got back to work and I got done about an hour before another storm – that gave us about 2 inches of rain yesterday and washed all the dirt off that had flown all over the place from the spraying of the power washer. My plants that had been near by really needed a wash down and I imagine all the trees and things needed a drink so that was fine. I can tell after the rain that I missed places on the wood here and there, it is old wood, not all of the dirt is going to come off – but it is done for another year – I just wanted an improvement – I didn’t think it would all come off. More rain off and on all week – glad I got that chore out of the way.
Cleaner than what it had been — but now wet.
Water all over the place, but it will soak in fast
Finally towards evening I got the last diamond for Handful of Scraps center piece finished. Now to get more pieces cut and basted and start to join the center together. Linking to Lorna’s Sew Fresh Quilts today and My Quilt Infatuation.
More on that tomorrow maybe – or maybe I will tackle those backings for the two quilts mentioned the other day.
