Finally done with this top! Seemed like it lasted forever – it hasn’t really I started the top around April 5th or so not a whole two months what with working on multiple tops at a time I never finish a top in a weekend like some do – does anyone really do that? LOL I swept off the deck and laid the quilt top down and the wind kept blowing before I could take a photo so I finally had to put things on each corner to hold it down but it is still not flat – don’t worry it will be when I quilt it! 100 x 103 inches. I will be hand quilting this quilt – possibly with Perle Cotton – not positive – but I think the bigger stitch would go on this one well. I will need to find a little star stencil pattern for the blank squares – they are about 9 inches if I remember right. It will be awhile though before it is started – I need my 3 roller frame set back up – maybe the end of summer?
Both chairs done and ready for some relaxing time. Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting.
On my walk around the property last evening I brought the camera along and got this shot of the wild black-eyed Susans. So pretty and I have them growing wild in numerous areas mainly on the edge of the woods.
A shot in the distance on the far side of the property away from the house where I walk on my trail which is actually looking like a trail with two years of walking it off and on now.
A shot of the house and the workshop from the same area.
The apples are growing – well they make it? I hope so. Shortly after I posted a photo about 3 or 4 weeks ago of some of the leafs drying up and spots on some of the leafs some told me it was something called Cedar Apple Rust or something like that – I found some stuff that you sprinkle all over the tree and it is supposed to get it under control – you are to do it before the apples form but I caught it late. I have a lot of cedar trees around so I can’t do anything about it but use the dust in the early spring. We will just wait and see what happens – I have made a note on the calendar to do this every spring.

A baby Bunny rabbit – she thinks she is hiding from me but I sure did see her. I have seen a baby several days in a row now – I doubt I see the same one – after all the saying goes “multiply like rabbits” I have probably seen several but it is always in the same area and always one while I see two or three mature rabbits in the back yard – this one is on the side near the deck where it can hide under and by the workshop.
Have a good weekend everyone. Don’t know how much quilting I will get done but I’m not going anywhere.
