Work and Rest

 I took one of the quilts off the design wall so I could get it on the frame,
 using a simple meander for this one--roads for all of the vehicles and such--the back is flannel in license plates!
 I needed room to put up blocks for a new quilt!  I am going to offset these blocks so that
I will get a zig zag secondary design between the vertical rows!
I am using a  combination of charm blocks and fat quarters to make these blocks!
 Bill and I finished the end of the porch border garden.
 Isn't the frog very cute sitting with the caladium?!
 The soil doesn't hold water so many of the plants we've found do better when they sit in pots.
I like the look.
However, the cactus and the bromeliads do fine in the soil!
These were the last two areas we needed mulch for finishing the front of the house!

Today is our last 'virtual' church service--
I will be attending in person next week!
What a gift.


  1. Holy cow! Your pencil cactus is HUGE!

  2. Your yard is so beautiful! So tropical. I love your new blocks. Stars are my favorite.

  3. The license plate fabric is fun and perfect for the quilt. You know how much I love stars. Eager to see how you’re going to set them.

  4. Your gardens are so beautiful. Looks like everything is thriving. Love the star blocks.

  5. It all looks wonderful! Enjoy.
