We have had a couple of lovely days to work outside. Saturday was the best. We are spending a good bit of time working in our backyard where we just added a patio. I love the outdoors so this is our summer project. We still have a long way to go.
We still need to get more plants in and add shrubbery, more plants, stepping stones, and a spot for my bird feeders and bird bath. I ordered a rain barrel to conserve water. It should arrive sometime this week or early next week. We also have to add the skirting under the sunroom and deck. Will be a busy time but hopefully it will be done this summer. But a garden is really never done. I so enjoy digging in the dirt!!
As for quilting, I finally started quilting my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. I am using a floor model PVC quilting frame. It works just like the small lap one that I have. This is the first time I tried one of these floor frames. My other quilting frame is a large wooden Grace frame that fits a queen sized quilt. It takes up a lot of room. Before we moved, I had the perfect place to set it up but in this house, I really don't unless I do a lot of furniture rearranging. We'll see how it goes. I am also working on a small wall quilt for my Attic Treasures series. All of the quilts in this series are made from vintage fabric I found in our family home attic several years ago.
