Friday afternoon and Saturday I was power washing my porch and decking – and I’m not done yet – I’m either very slow and/or this thing was just plain dirty – and large!! I hope to do some more of it today but it depends on when the rain starts and really I might just need a break and finish it sometime later in the week! It’s not like I need it for anything right now and it is just us using it.
This much done!
And here you can really see where I stopped yesterday.
this much left to do
And the walk way around this garden spot.
I’ve got way too big of space around here!! I’m getting too old to keep up with it all. This is what happens when you live in the country and have a little space around you!
On Friday night I got Patchwork of the Crosses rolled down and now I will work all the way across to finish up row 5 of the Crosses. I am linking to Kathy’s Slow Stitching Sunday today. It is going to rain so I will be quilting or sewing something today.
While watching the evening news the last couple of days I got a little more applique done on Floral Fantasy:
This is the fabric ready for the backing on the red and black checkerboard quilt with the applique flowers. I just need to sit down and sew it – I will have time this week – Monday and Tuesday we have a cold front coming through – possibly down to freezing or below both nights – glad I didn’t plant anything yet. I did buy some bedding plants but I have not planted them and will hold off so I can bring them in the house if I need to.
This is how much I have had to cut my hydrangea down to – this is smallest it has been since I planted it 25 or so years ago. I hope it grows back this spring.
this is the size the same hydrangea was last year the same month. I have never had to cut so much off of the plant as I did this year – the ice and cold winter sure did a number on it. Last year I see I had a little garden planted – not this year! I’m waiting until May
