Red, White and Blue

I had remember the other day that it has been 6 years now that I started blogging and have enjoyed every time I write. Some days are better than others but the main thing is how lucky and grateful I am for all of you who take time to read and comment.
Thank you so much.

Yeah the top is finished.

Measure out to be 61 x 47 as it is now.

I'm not sure if I want to add a border, sort of like it as it is. Plan is to hang it up on the wall.

I did try auditioning some different pieces of different colors and just didn't like any of them.
Thinking the binding will be all it needs.
I still haven't heard back yet from the designer Amy in Texas about a pattern. I'll let you know when I do.

Today and yesterday morning have been perfect (weather wise) and been taking advantage of it. Been weeding some of the beds around the house. I'm only about 1/4 done. 
And then some of the potted plants  needed to be

Had these Boston ferns that have outgrown their pots.
Two of them I just potted into larger pots 

and then the other one

I divided up into thirds

 and potted them up into same size pots like the one it came out of.

I would've used a hand pruning saw but couldn't find it so I had to use a hacksaw. Worked out just fine but pruning saw would of been easier.

They will all do fine.  

Have some more to do tomorrow and will try to get to it but Mom does have a doctor's visit to check on how she has done this first week on treatment.

  6. Oh! That turned out really nice! I love the neutral patchwork in the white stripes (also like it without borders sewn on). I hope your mom's appointment goes well.

  7. Loving the flag quilt. Hoping you get a pattern together !


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
