No I haven't fallen off the grid, just incredibly busy and have not gotten much sewing done.
But we did finish our landscape redo last Tuesday and are very happy with the results. We pulled out/dug out old Spirea's, Japenese Yew, hosta's, Stella lilies, layed new landscape fabric down and hauled in 5 ton of rock! Talk about hard work, I am so not used to that kind of physical labor. Plus a month ago I painted the shutters a rusty red along with the front door, it's like our house got a face lift!
Here is a before picture...
And now the after...Of course since I took the pic the Stella lilies are starting to bloom.
Another reason I have not posted was because we were gone for 5 days to Country Fest is Cadott, WI. What a wild place but we sure enjoyed the music, best ones for us Blake Shelton, Braid Paisley, Rodney Atkins, Randy Houser, Carrie Underwood. We did get rained on a few times-actually it poured down but we ran for cover before we personally got soaked. We would liked to have heard more of Gary Allen-it started pouring down after he had been playing for only 15 minutes.
But here is a scrap quilt I am working on little by little in between other things. I am using lightweight interfacing as my foundation and it is working out nicely.
And I made up this little basket-I have been seeing them posted all over the internet and thought I just had to have one too! Sorry I don't remember right now who's tute is was. Super simple though.
