What are you all up to these days? It seems that spring brings many jobs and chores, like planting and cleaning out closets, to light. My dear husband and I planted 71 mondo grass plants around our oval island in the driveway. We also planted 3 Knock out roses in that area which also contains our fountain and some sega palms. My sister in CA suggested that 2 rows of mondo grass would look even better. Well, maybe next year. Here is SC it is hot and muggy much of the summer and it will soon be too hot to plant. I haven't put in nearly the amount of plants I unusually do. It is going to have to do.
I had such a good time at my friend, Karen's home back in March. After visiting with my daughter and her family for several days in Ohio, I went to visit Karen who lives about 45 minutes from daughter. Karen had a purse kit all cut and quilted for me. Several of her students and I made our purses in a class she taught. I mean how great is that to have a kit ready to go! She and I also worked on a Kaffe Fasset project out of his new book, which she gave me for a birthday gift. I provided all the lighter color strips and she used her darker colored strips. We got much of the quilt finished. I have had some other things to do, and haven't finished mine yet. It is really a beauty and I have a picture of it not sewn all together yet. But I think you can see where it is going.
