Rain Rain and Rain one week and now nice weather to be outside and enjoy -- or work in the garden wich equals enjoyment! I got this fancy geranium plant up north a couple weeks ago and finally I got to plant it in the planter right outside the front door, so I can enjoy it every day!
The next thing I did this past weekend was get my flower boxes planted on the front porch, this year I am going with a red, white and pink color scheme. The petunias in the front of the flower box are pink with dark veins and the ones in the back are bright pink -- I think this will fill in great.
On Sunday I had gotten this old ladder as a road side treasure last year and I knew it was going in the garden by the creek, but I needed to paint some pots for it, so it was such a nice day on Sunday I painted these clay pots red with small yellow polka dots and screwed them into the ladder - the ladder is also secured in the ground with support stakes, to survive our winds here. The pots are about 1/2 way open so I can do a flower that mounds or trails, can't wait to get this planted this coming weekend! One thing I did that was not the brightest, I put this all together in the driveway -- then Dear Hubby and I had to carry it down to the creek -- it got heavier as the creek got closer!
Then I had to get some sewing done - this is the first month of the Schnibble Parade and it was the Hat Trick -- It was a combo of 20 nine patch blocks, but since the weather was so nice I only got 5 done and made a table topper, I still have to quilt it and bind it -- hoping to get that done this weekend. It will be a nice summer topper. So glad we are having the Schnibble group again I just love working on these patterns and seeing all he different combos of colors.
I love the pattern but because I let it go so late into the month I could not really settle on a color scheme so I am hoping to get some great ideas from the parade this month!
I did get 1 scrap block done, I found this pattern as I was looking for some fabric and I thought this would be a good scrap project. so Thanks Kim at Kims Big Quilting Adventur I know have 2 new projects started!
I better finish up this post and get to bed 4 AM comes pretty early! Thanks for stopping by!
