Here's a pic of the garden from the second floor bedroom. John put the fencing up (those dang critters just love tender little seedlings!, and the electric wire will go around shortly!)....so I put in 12 tomatoes, 6 zucchini, 6 pickling cukes, 6 jalepeno and 6 green pepper. I screened two wheelbarrows of compost for the little guys, so they should have a really good start! I'll be setting seed with the green beans and corn tomorrow AFTER I get one of those screen hats.....because I have at least 20 blackfly bites on my head! And they are all welting up, and hurt! Sheesh! I'm like a magnet for bugs that bite! And it wouldn't be so bad, except they seem to go for my eyes! So I have a big old welt right next to my left eye, and I'm looking a bit like Quasimodo! Fun times!
Hubby has gone to the Jersey Shore for a huge kite festival. For those of you in that area, it's going on Fri-Sat-Sun at Wildwood. It's really fun, but I bowed out this year, cuz I'm taking a lot of time off for my other trips, and as it is, I have almost all of June off, so he went alone. So I'm taking advantage of being home alone, and quilting my brains out!
I finished making all 480 flying geese for Jeanne's quilt. And got them sewn in strips of 4, too! Sweet! It's now on the wall, and I started to sew strips together.....got the top left corner row done, then realized I had something else I needed to do first! Eek!
My friend Betty at the town office is having a birthday on June 2! Yikes! And I've been talking about making her a wall hanging for over a month now! Have I started it!?! No! So I got busy on it last night! It's the same technique I blogged about on my October 30, 2010 post, an idea from Jenny Bowker at Postcards from Cairo.
I got brave this time and used the contrasting thread for part of the design! I'm loving it! I borrowed a piece of the pinecone fabric from my friend Brenda, who made Betty a quilt last year using some of this.....so the wall hanging will match perfectly! Yay! I'll finish the quilting up within the weekend, and have it ready for Thursday delivery!
And am I worried Betty might see this ahead of time.....No! Cuz NONE of my friends here ever read my blog! What's up with that!?! They always ask what I've been working on, and the first thing I say is, "Have you read my blog?".....and they always say no! Sheesh! I have pics of my projects and everything! Oh well.....maybe one day, right!?!
I can't believe I have to work this weekend.....I have so much quilting and gardening to do! lol
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
