I noticed last evening that there were several butterflies and lots of bees enjoying the lavender I planted in June. The plants have quadrupled in size and are covered in flowers. I wish I had planted more. It seems not to mind the heat and dry conditions that have been going on for the last couple of months.
The wife of the man I made the feed sack quilt for called me last night to thank me for the quilt. She loved it and thought I had done a wonderful job.
My next projects will be to fix my nephew's equipment covers and stitch up a seam in a t-shirt
and to finish another UFO. I made this quilt with the linen and Essex I printed when I took a workshop at QuiltCon 2015. The linen I added is a mix of pieces I had and a Irish linen plaid pair of pants that I got at a garage sale my neighbor where I use to live was having. It is beautiful fabric. I have it almost pin basted. This will be a fancy baby quilt!
I was horrified with what happened in Las Vegas. My heart goes out to those killed, injured, the survivors, and their families.
Then Tom Petty passed away. I saw him once in an interview that cause me to have a paradigm shift about getting older. Tom said "If your not getting older, then your dead." Thank you Tom for such a profound statement. R.I.P.
