I got my wool box out at the end of yesterday to look and see what I had for the egg decorations to make – and they are so pretty – there are so many bright colors available – yesterday though was all about the yard – I have been so busy cleaning up the fall leaves while the weather is so nice – it has been about 68 degrees for 3 days in a row now and well stay in the 60’s for a couple more days – we do need rain – it is so dry out there. I use fertilizer for the apple tree that you are stakes are you pound them into the ground – I needed to put two in the ground for it and could not pound them in the dirt was so dry and hard I had to use a trowel and scrap out a big enough hole on two sides of the tree to drop them in instead.
I have another box to look through still but that one has the duller colors in it so will use some but I would rather have some of these bright colors. I think for Slow Sunday Stitching I will be cutting out the first Xmas egg to decorate and do some of the quilting at the frame too. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework today.
Even though I keep the water bottle by the quilting frame to spritz out the blue lines I forgot to use it so here is the quilting from Friday night with the blue lines still in place.
See no excuse to forget – it is hanging right there!
Still a little bit of yard work to finish today – I have one of the raised beds to turn the dirt over, and part of two sides to put mulch down to keep the area around the beds free of weeds – also need to plant the tulips still. Then I am done and it will be time to quilt. I do believe (hope) that today I will finish up the yard work that needs to be done and then other than helping Mike with clearing brush or cutting small trees down now and then in the winter months we will be done with the yard work for the fall/winter.
