FLOWERS AND QUILTS---


I can not believe this weather!!!
It really is like spring here--
and it feels good as we have not really had a spring in a couple years--
it has just went from winter to summer!!!
So this afternoon I decided to do a job that I had wanted to do all week--
This is the small garden that I care for here--
and I took it from this look-- 
To this one--
and look at how much higher the tulips grew while I was working out there--
guess they love me!!!!!
the reddish looking bush in the front here is an azalea bush--
I can not decide whether to leave it or move it somewhere's else????
and I seen a couple of my hyacinth's are coming along nicely!!!
I did alot of pulling up and digging out--
Had 3 rather tall invasive flowers take over last year--
and I want only low growing ones this year!!!

Now taking about flowers--
It is Wednesday--
and here are my flowers for this week--

two more for the quilt garden!!!  


And talking about quilting--
I am doing a happy happy dance here tonight--
( or should be, but after cleaning out that garden!!!??)



cause I took this 'pile' of binding and--
sewed it to the 'Forever Pink' quilt--
Oh yes yes yes---we are now finished totally--
it took me 2 months of daily hand quilting on it to get it all done--
did not even really realize until today--just how large this quilt really is!!!!
I am sooo very happy it is done--
on to the next quilt project!!!!!!
So this is my 'report' for this Wednesday!!
Hope you had a great day tooooo!!!!
Happy stitching tomorrow--
Hugs, Di and a lazy Miss Gracie
