I thought I would get done with the first border on the Murrieta Stars today but I waited too long in the day to get started – therefor I only have two sides done – first border is the same color as the setting half square triangles then the patchwork – I hadn’t gotten this pressed but it was time to get supper started last night when I took this photo – it would wait for today and get the next two strips – top and bottom and then get started on the patchwork – I hope! Linking to Sarah’s Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Crazy Mom Quilts.
I am almost done with two sides of the Postage Stamp binding – here is what it looks like with the Clam Shell border – glad I decided on the stripe – I need to keep my eye out for more stripe fabric as I am always pleased with the way it looks.
And along the sides.
Wouldn’t you know it I haven’t seen a deer in the yard for months and months and now the garden is planted and the plants are all coming up and I saw a deer in the backyard tonight. I guess one of the first things I better do in the morning is check and see if they found the garden – I think some wire fencing will need to go up around the green beans right away – they destroyed them last year – now will they eat the peas too? I hadn’t planted them before so I don’t know.
I finished my book “Golden Prey” this afternoon that is why I had a late start to sewing LOL – I can never put his books down – I brought it to the fitness center and even put in an extra 10 minutes on the treadmill so I could finish – I didn’t want to put it down to drive home
