Another Finish #7

Finished this small quilt this morning had 2 charm packs of Antique Fair, I meandered loops so it quilted up fast. So this would be 7th finish for the year. The only other top that's near done would be the Granny Squares can't decide to make it bigger or just add a border and it would make a nice baby crib quilt.
Picked up my new glasses and trying to get used to the progressive lenses, will take a bit of time.
It's a long weekend, we are planning to watch some fastball games on Sun. other than that just play around home.

Civil War Journals complete

Finished #6 for this year.
Last weekend we went out of town and I added more fish to the pond 3 Koi and 3 Shabumkins, so now I have a total of 11 fish, it was so funny to watch the big goldfish chasing the new ones which are quite a bit smaller around the pond, Randy made a medal boat with windows and they like to hide in it.
The tomatoes that I got are now planted hoping all chances of frost are gone, so I don't lose these like the last ones even with the plastic tee pees.

Veg garden planted

Finished planting the veggie garden the only thing left is to find spaghetti squash seeds, and onion sets think we are going out of town on Sat. so will find them there.
Randy is going to Brown Creek for work tomorrow and will be staying in camp over night, so that means I don't have to cook supper and the weather is not going to be nice so my plan is a sew day Yahoo!! Should get the binding done for Swoon and then cut the backing fabric for Civil War Journals and get it loaded on the frame, not a lot just a relaxing day.

Productive weekend

Well I got my hanging baskets done went to the rock bluff and got the moss for them, Randy got some 4 yr old horse manure so the garden got tilled, today I will get some of the veg garden planted, lawn mowed love spring as the grass is so green.
I got swoon quilted with lg. meandering was undecided about the binding whether just white or coloured decided on a colour got go go through my stash. The weather is going to be nice so don;t know when I will get it done. CW Journals is the next to be quilted, I got the backing and batting so just need to load it, might do that this morning waiting for it to warm up a bit,  I need to do some quick housework, well better get going.

New Project

I found a tutorial using your scraps but I had a jellyroll so I'm using it, I cut them 2.5" x 3.5" and sewed 5 together. Then you sew a 1" strip of white to both sides, then I added a small polka dot grey 4 7/8" cut once on the diagonal centered it to the middle 2.5 x 3.5 piece, squared it up to 7"  Sew 4 together.
