Normally I am not a big fan of rainy days but every once in a while they are a godsend!
Lately we have been having “unusually” nice warm sunny days which means I have been spending all my time outside in the garden…pulling weeds, planting bulbs & flowers…spring cleaning outside. I can tell you that my muscle pains had muscle pains! I can’t believe all the new muscles I discovered that haven’t been used all winter…I am getting old ! ( I have always been out of shape but now I am old & out of shape!)
So, this sore body was very happy when is started to rain yesterday! Yippee! A day I can stay in and sew!
I am happy to report I cut up allllll the FQ’S for my new project … 240 pcs…… …all the blocks are marked ready for stitching …36 blocks… now I just have to stitch them…I hope we have some more rainy days!
In the meantime my Hubby and I will have to plant these flowers ( yes, I have to stay out of the nurseries…but I like them as much as I like fabric shops)
I have always loved Bleeding hearts..they use to fascinate me when I was a little girl…they still do!
Some true old favorites…every garden needs some “Forget-me-Not & Impatients I had my Hubby dig out the old roses bushes ( they weren’t getting enough sun in this spot) … and now I want to plant these Hydrangeas there ( I love Hydrangeas and they love me ..LOL)
I figure that should keep him busy over the weekend…pity we have to go to a Christening otherwise I could make him plant more..LOL
Don’t these make you think of the song …
I wish you a sunny day …or maybe a rainy one?
P.S. I see clouds rolling in..it may be a rain day after all…..yippee…sewing machine here I come!
