Quilting and Gardening . . .

(Note: This post was created yesterday, but it wouldn't upload until today - I've got it figured out now! The Microsoft Customer Support (Nadia) saved my day and gave such wonderful directions on fixing my problem).

Lovely Sunday! A bit of this and a bit of that . . . couldn’t ask for more – except more days like today.DSC03630Stopped over at Bunny Hill today and Anne was explaining about this new Windows Writer that she discovered quite a few months back. Of course I’m always curious about new-to-me stuff and have spent huge portions of today trying to figure this all out.


I’m finding this just a little time consuming trying to get the right things to show up in the right places, but I think I’m catching on to this. There is some very interesting things that you can do with the pictures and fonts that I couldn’t do before this . . . so that is fun in itself! DSC03625Before I started mowing the grass this afternoon, I hit to the perennial garden with the camera to see what has been sprouting out there. WOW!! Look at all of my beautiful flowers.


These little rains that we’ve been having have made everything come into bloom or just about ready to burst into bloom – even the weird ones.

DSC03628Some only last a day or so and others will bloom for another week or two – those darn poppies are here today and gone tomorrow type of plants – gotta catch them when you can!


I did squeeze in a little quilting early in the morning and later in the afternoon. Started a little appliqué project and continued with my little half-square triangles – these are sooooooooooo adorable and little and I can’t wait to see how it goes together. There are at least four different layouts that I’ve thought of so far, so we’ll just have to wait until all the blocks are done and then I can play with them to see what looks the best.


When you’re using colors that are so nice and bright and that you really like, it makes the whole process so much fun!

‘til next time,

Gorgeous flowers! I especially love the poppy, but you are so right about how quickly they are gone. Fabulous photos to keep those menories alive.
