It is raining today. I would show you how happy my cucumber plants are, but they were too ashamed. My husband is Skyping his brother in Ireland and I am trying to just chill. The quilt that Zoey is sitting on, on the porch has as its filler our wedding quilt. In 1980 when we got married, I made a log cabin quilt in Irish colors and embroidered our names and birth dates and birth places and eventually the names and birth dates of our children. We used it so much, and with the exposure to the Miami sun/light, it became so faded, that I covered it with this quilt top. Now the "treasure" is on the porch with Zoey. I cannot throw away anything.
The aluminum platter and pitcher is from my grandmother. She could never throw away anything either...lucky me. There were Hydrangeas in this pot as well with the herbs and Coleus. I knew I could root Basil and Coleus, but was so very surprised to see that the Rosemary rooted as well...great to know as Rosemary grows year round here in Charlotte.
I have vowed to "take it easy" today. I have had a rough two days and Mr. O'Quilts and others have said it is because I am doing too much. That sneaky drive on Thursday to see my mother did me in, as well as using the design wall. So when my sister brought me these pre-cuts yesterday, I decided that if I must sew, which I must, it will just be sewing and not thinking.
