I guess my post yesterday was one day early. The gardener showed up late in the afternoon and did the Fall planting, pulling out the Hibiscus and Pentas. He agreed that I only had a couple of weeks left on the Hibiscus and probably only a couple of more blooms. The new plantings look so bare but clean. He put in Cabbage and pansies and replaced the Hibiscus with shaped boxwoods. I kinda like the boxwoods as it gives the courtyard a real French country look. My little plantings from last week look anorexic in comparison. Let’s see, my 36 pansies versus his 300+ , He wins!
I am not just messing around in the flower beds! I did finish the smocking on the younger granddaughter’s dress and will start on the older granddaughter’s dress tonight. I have designed a couple of more quilts – one for a baby and one for a wedding gift. Below are the fabrics. These two quilts are the first of the year projects unless miracles happen before then and I can start sooner.
Here are the fabric selections
The wedding quilt will be Steps to the Altar. I love the brown with the birds which will be a wide border.
Have a beautiful day wherever you are.
