Weekends go by too fast. On Saturday we went to a casino in Michigan's upper peninsula with my Mom & Dad. We had a good time, but I lost all my money--oh well, maybe next time I will win it back.
Early Sat. morning, I sewed the binding to my log cabin. Today I watched taped episodes of "Simply Quilts" while slipstitching 3 sides. One more side to go and it is ready to put on the bed.
It was a beautiful day here (nearly 70 º). I worked outside a few hours, planting 6 Alberta Spruce shrubs in the rock garden. They are very tiny, but will slowly grow to about 8 feet. I love them (I already have 7 of them). I also did some more border cleanup, but was not really in the mood for that today. My energy level seems to be declining each year. I can no longer spend 8 - 10 hours working like a mad woman in the gardens. After 3 or 4 hours of rather slow paced work, I have pretty much had it. So it takes me a lot longer to get the spring chores done these days.
I had DH haul my cana lily out from under the crawl space of the house where I stored it through the winter. In the fall I just cut the foliage off the plant and stick it under there right in the soil. I never look at it again until spring. Today I looked and was sooooo excited when I saw it was alive (see those two little pink shoots? It is still way too early to leave it outside, but I will stick it in the garage each night. Looking at this, you may wonder, "Why is she so excited about that?". LOL. I know it does not look like much at the moment.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
