At Sharie's House
There really is not much going on at Sharie's house.............unless you want to count the road trip the "Quilting Chicks" and I went on this past Saturday. We went to Kinder, LA, stopped at a quilters house, left off several quilts and then went on to Oberlin, LA where we visited a new shop in town. I could not pass up the batiks. I could have bought many more but you know that pocket book thing, and then of course I do have a few in the house. Look at that kitty cat fabric. It is so cute, it has shiny "stuff" on it. I bought that for a friend who could not go on our trip. She loooves kitty cats. There is a panel in there. I bought that because I have a lot of fabric in that line. I thought I would use the panel on the back of the quilt (when I make it). The others are just things I wanted and the last piece with all the stripes is gorgeous. It will make a lovely binding. I bought enough so I could sprinkle it through a quilt and then bind it to match. So much fabric, so many ideas and not enough time. I wish I could do something about all the time I waste sleeping. I cannot seem to get away from sleeping.
These "Bottle Brush" bushes are in my back yard. I have never seen them so loaded with flowers. All the flowers this year seem to be in abundance. We have been in summer now for at least a couple of weeks. It is 72 degrees and it is 8:30 in the morning. It is lovely weather but it is a sign that we are going to have a loooong hot summer. Everything is very green. You can see from the picture my yard needs to be mowed. I had it mowed on 29 Feb, and I took this picture a couple of days ago, so it is less then three weeks since it was mowed. Everything is growing like a weed. I hate the thoughts of summer, I really would like to have a long winter, but I think that is unheard of in the deep south. Although I have seen winter last a little longer than this one has.
Tomorrow, we have 100% chance of rain and 90% chance on Wednesday. Guess what I am going to do....sew????
