Out In The Garden Again!

The Sun Is Shining and I'm Gardening!

I ordered my seeds and I am going to plant watermelons, cabbage, carrots, pole beans, beets, cukes, spinach, red globe onions and pearl millet.  Most are old heirloom seeds and I am anxious to see them growing.  I will also have some squash and zucchini in there somewhere.

I have been out in the garden the last three days (mainly because I move a little slower now) cleaning up the yard.  Raked all the leaves I had left covering my gardens for the winter and raked the grass.  I pulled up and transplanted most of the things I had growing in an old garden spot and rototilled that up for more vegetable garden space.  I needed another sunny spot and that was it.  Also rototilled the regular vegetable garden spot and a space behind the shed.  Whew!  I am whipped.

So not too much going on in the quilting department with all that going on.  But, I still have two quilts that need binding.

 The end of the month we are going on a trip to visit 3 children, all in different places.  Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.  We have a friend that volunteered to come and stay at our house and take care of the animals and house sit.  I feel so good about that. We have 4 fur babies that are going to miss us.


And Sugar

All are spoiled rotten of course, and needs lots of love and attention.

I hope all of you are finally enjoying some warm spring weather at last.  Until next time,

A '365' Flimsy

Well, I have finally gotten my circles sorted, edges put on, sewn them together, and come up with a flimsy!  Want to see them? Of course you do!

My husband really likes the variety in the circles, and all of the color.   Here are some close ups.

There are circles from pieces left over from quilts I've made, and some from material that was given to me from my friend Mary.  It's pretty colorful and I like it.  Still have to add another border to it, but all in all I am pretty happy with the way it is turning out.

So have a good day, and keep on quilting!

March's '365'

Here we are in another month already!  We have had a lot of rain which will bring May flowers!  I can hardly wait to get outside and start gardening again.

 I can smell the fresh air, the crumbly dirt, and the fresh flowers!

So it's time to show you my progress on the '365'.  I decided I needed to get my circles organized so I started sorting them all.  Then I thought I had better whittle these down, so I sorted them into sets.  Then I sewed some of the sets together.

Here are some close-ups of the sets.

I also have some sets ready to sew.

And a pile of circles that still need to be sorted.  Some I need to make more of  as there are not enough for the sets.

This has been a lot of fun and if you would like to see what others are doing you may visit Quilty Folk.
A lot of neat ideas out there!

Thank you all for visiting, keep on quilting, and have a great day!
