It is only 45 degrees here this morning (6:12 a.m.). After 80 - 90 degree weather all week, it felt good last night to sleep under my quilt. I have not picked up a needle in over a month now and am missing it. Next week I am taking 4 days off work, so maybe I can work on the jean quilt then.
Today I am going to cut up an old quilt that I made for my son in the late 1970's--Remember those old calicoes? Well here they all are, or what is left of them. This is the first quilt I ever made and was used on my son's bed for years, but it is now so tattered. I am going to cut it into smaller squares to use on the deck on the back of the benches . The fabrics are the same as those in the little crazy quilt that I use now. I have had reservations about cutting it up (being my first one and all). But it is useless as it is, so I think today will be the day.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
