I finished the purple and gray Halloween quilt.
Besides working on the Halloween quilt I spent time this weekend working in the yard. After seeing a show on PBS, I realized I needed to mulch around my pine trees. Three of these trees were free with a mail in coupon. The were just a stick when I got them 10 years ago. I had to replace one two years ago, the one that had the cage around it. I think it got rust. Here they are before.
After three hours crawling around in the wet grass, I got the grass and weeds pulled from under the trees, put down landscaping fabric, and mulched each tree keeping the mulch away from the tree trunks. I don't know it this made them any happier, but they don't have to compete with the grass and weeds for the moisture around their roots. I will have to put the cage back around the small tree to keep anyone cutting thru the yard this winter from stepping on it.
Tonight I have to work on fixing that dress.
