Murrieta Stars is coming along and will come along faster now that I decided to forego flowers or anything fancy and just get on with straight stitching on this flannel quilt. This half of the quilt in the section across that I reach is now done.
This much to go before it gets rolled down and one row of stars is complete and 5 more rows of stars to complete – I am working on the second row of them right now.
I am putting together a small quilt from the charm package that I won mixing them with a charm package of Kona Snow that I got on a daily deal from Fat Quarter Shop I think for 99 cents – so with a backing from the stash and batting pieced together from left overs you are talking basically a small free quilt – I will probably mail this off to someone in need of a donation quilt – if anyone needs a small quilt let me know – I’m not sure what the size will be and a border will be added to make it large enough to use.
A little work is started on the left hand side of Handful of Scraps – I figured I better get back to work on this and get it finished. I do not know what size it will be still but I will add the three rows on to the left side and then decide from there – this will make the quilt 56 x 62 when I finish this section.
Leaves were mulched in this section of the yard and yes a little more will fall down and need to be cleaned up but it won’t be as much as what I took care of the last 3 days.
All the mulched up leaves are being dumped all around the raised beds to keep weeds from growing too close. And yes this area needs to be mulched still too! It never ends in a yard this big.
I still have some marigolds and petunias growing – looking pretty still but straggly.
I still have some roses growing too – this one taken through the sewing room window
the pretty trees in back of the workshop
And the ferns are still alive on the porch – I am keeping an eye on the nightly temperatures and only have protected them once for two nights – will possibly have to do that again for a night or two – I wonder how long they will stay alive – I really think they will die if I bring them in the house and have little natural light for them in the winter and the house gets too dry for ferns.
More yard work to do but very windy tomorrow they say so maybe it will be inside work instead?
