I'm home


My flowers look pretty pathetic after 10 days but I pinched off all the dead ones and watered it well so cross your fingers it comes back to life. Geraniums seem pretty hardy and my baskets last year survived all season in spite of neglect when I was traveling so I'm hoping this one will too.


On my design wall this Monday:

Not much progress before I left on the last trip but you can see the Stars and Pinwheels slowly taking form. I continue to make half square triangles and assemble the blocks - hopefully I'll get a couple more blocks made this week. I'd also like to get the Hearts top loaded and quilted but first I have a lot of mail and email to get through.

So glad you are home safe and sound! I really like the arrangement of the blocks on your design wall. I really like the pink and brown combo. Hope the wedding went well for your brother. Best wishes to them all. Jenn

There's something you can get to keep your plants watered while you're away. I tried a dry water one that worked well but was a pain to use and expensive, but I've seen much cheaper and simpler systems. Sorry, can't remember a name but they are out there.

Yes Mary, my dog loves my kitty, and the kitty loves the dog. I went back in my pictures and with my hubby's help we scanned a couple of pictures. We don't plan the color it just works out that way. Fern
