One top down!

I've finished one Lewis and Clark top...I couldn't get it all in the picture, so you will have to use your imagination a bit. I love the scrappy look! I'm a little nervous to start machine quilting it. It is 80" square, and I've never quilted anything that big (by machine).

Tonight I hope to work lots on the other L & C top that I'm making....I'm nearly done with it also.

Garden invaded by aliens??

So, what do you think of my strange foxglove? It is obviously some very weird mutation. The core is very stiff, but the little leaves are soft. It really feels like some sort of creature. I'll be anxious next year to see if it returns!

Today, I plant zennias and work on my Lewis and Clark quilts. Should be a great day!

Quilt update

I've finished the next round of my Lewis and Clark quilts. I'm liking the way they are turning out! I have one more pieced round (which I am starting this evening) and then a simple border. I hope to have the tops done by next weekend when I go to my sister's in Morro Bay. I need some imput on machine quilting.

We finished state testing at school today. Now we can have some fun!

Spring garden in California

My yard has reached its peak, I believe! We have had such a beautiful spring...perfect weather for flowers! I'm sure our hot days are just around the corner, but until then, I will enjoy all this color.

Spring break in Washington

I just got home from 5 wonderful days in Washington with my oldest daughter and her family. The weather was beautiful....surprise, surprise! My granddaughters were so much fun! The oldest one, Sammy jo, had lots of fun dressing me up. She and I had a sleep over every night since I shared her bedroom.
Tomorrow, I hope to get lots of sewing done on my Lewis and Clark quilts!
