I finished The Gypsy Influence, made a little progress on other projects, and took more pics of the deer and flowers in our backyard.
Remember when I made these small quilts after I finished Gypsy Wife? Well, I finally sewed them together using Wendy's potholder method. I've so admired her quilts that I thought I'd give it a try.
Each mini-quilt is quilted and bound . . .
. . . then whip-stitched together. I love the result. Thanks, Wendy, for sharing your tips! Make sure you hop on over to her blog The Constant Quilter to see what she's been up to.
The label. Ta-da!
I recently published my 2014 blog book via Blog2Print. I'm working backwards so have now completed three.
I'm always pleased with the quality of the color printing.
This binding winder gadget definitely comes in handy! I'm getting closer and closer to that final step on my Flags quilt :)
Here's what's blooming in our yard:
Feverfew reseeds itself every year so there's lots of it in and around the garden. It smells so good.
Tiger Lilies make a big splash of color at the end of the driveway :)
A late-blooming Rhododendron.
The deer were back the other day. Mama started pawing at the ground when she saw me. The little fawn is getting big. So cute!
And the other day my son-in-law sent this picture of the snapping turtle in our yard at the cabin. Every year it returns to the exact same spot where she digs a nest and lays her eggs. Unfortunately, we've never seen any hatchlings. Maybe this will be the year!
Have a great week!
