My crafting and family life journal

Window Seat

With all of the rain that we have had the last two weeks I have just about finished another UFO. Last night I finished folding down the flowers and stitched them in place and started adding the beads that represent berries on the branches. The quilting was done with gold and copper metallic thread — not one of my favorites to work with, but appropriate for this quilt. All of the flowers were created with an origami folding technique — it is a lot of fun but takes a bit of time — maybe that is why it took me a year to finish this small wall hanging.

It may be a few days before I get back to adding the berries since the weather took a turn for the better and it stopped raining… so I spent this morning deadheading the flowering plants in the beds around the house, mowing the lawn and weeding and fertilizing the vegetable beds. Since we received 6 days of rain I am really enjoying the outdoor activities … now if we could just get caught up around the house so that we could spend some time with the kayaks on the water…. There is always next week…
