The last 5 blocks for the Tumalo Trails are done!! This quilt has been flying along.
Then I got them pressed and squared up. I got the coffee table moved out of the way and a layout done. The rows are all numbered and stacked up and I am ready to cut sashing and get started putting rows together this week. I am linking to Sew Fresh Quilts today and Jo’s Country Junction – Jo has a spectacular quilt top to show today that she has finished. If you like a very scrappy quilt you will like this and I love the border she added. Also linking to Quilt Fabrication and My Quilt Infatuation.
Last night I walked down to the garden and took a few photos of the flowers – I planted a package of mixed sunflower seeds – the colors are supposed to be orange to yellow and the sizes vary. This one obviously is orange – the plant is about 4 feet tall – more growing right next to it appear to be the same but this is the only one in full bloom right.
These are the morning glory plants with no buds still – I’m beginning to wonder if there will be. Peaking out of the top is a sunflower plant – about 6 feet tall. We have had a lot of rain this summer – July usually starts a bit of a dry spell and we have had at least 5 inches of rain this past week! Ready for a dry spell but have not had to water the garden. This sunflower has been growing about 6 inches a day!
Taken from the other side – it was beginning to be near sunset and the plant is turned towards where the sun had been. There are about six buds on this one – well I did toss a handful of seeds in that area so it most likely is more than one plant.
The double blossom lilies are in bloom – we dug these tubers up a long time ago someplace – don’t remember where and brought them home and now we have a lot. Back in the days when there were a lot less people around our area and there were a lot of empty old homesteads around and you felt like you could stop along the dirt roads and dig up plants and bring them home with you. Don’t feel like I can do that anymore.
Thank you all that took advantage of the Craftsy and Accuquilt sales this holiday weekend – I do appreciate you all ordering through my links.
