I'm wondering if I could get by with a post of mostly pictures and very few words??? ;0) It's been a FULL day and my brain doesn't want to get creative...
Pulled out the yellows this AM for some Rainbow Scrap Challenge time. Scrappy Stars has been on my "to-be-made-someday" sidebar, and it really seems like the perfect pattern to use up some yellow. But rather than use purple/yellow, I'll be using Blue-n-Gold, the colors of my school. :0)
Hit the 1.5" scrap drawer and pulled everything I had in blue-n-gold...
Here's a goodies that clearly came from Grandma's stash.
My morning hours were completely used cutting HUNDREDS of HSTs in blue-n-gold (596 Gold, 3## Blue --can't remember exactly how many). But now, ready next to the machine as my next Leader-Ender project until I can hit it full speed :0)
After lunch, it was time to get outside (guilted a BIT by Paul---what a mover-n-shaker he can be!!!!). Besides, I had been avoiding this eye-sore! UGH, right!??!?! So, with the girls' help, we all started removing ALL (MOST) of the rocks....
Four hours, loads of rock, and a sunburn later.....it's ALMOST finished. I need to get some mulch. The reshaping of the top occurred because one of the bushes had perished, and I really didn't to have so much "deadspace."
This is the bottom-view (OBVIOUSLY before....)
And after. If you zoom in, you'll see there's a hole prepped and ready on the left to be filled with a bush being transplanted from a different location. AND, the girls FINALLY were able to play after working ALLLLLLL day for either myself or Paul.
Then, after dinner......I COULD have been done, but I figured I'd do a couple quilting passes on With Heart while the girls were in the bathtub. Although I was ready to be done long before I actually stopped, I persevered and FINISHED the quilting! Tomorrow AM----binding and labeling. Maybe I'll be able to deliver this to Jody tomorrow before she's done with her summer school course.
Okay....NOW, I'm done for the day.
