I'm showing an update on the flower bed~ Finally got the weeds out, the edging done and the flowers planted, now they just have to grow!
And as of today!
Quell difference! or however you spell that french stuff! (just read it with a french accent)
Next I have been doing some small quilty things that can be finished up in one sitting- a motorcycle print mug mat for my husband- no he does not take it on his cycle! ;-)
Next I was having some trouble with my water bottle "sweating" all over my desks, so I made it a little quilty bag thingie- both of these are lined with that silver fabric -can't think of what it's called, but it insulates them and they are working great! See the awesome vintage cooler it's sitting next to? I found it (well I bought it) at an antique mall. Silly isn't it? My parents had the same one and I'm sure they got rid of it years ago in favor of a lightweight and bigger one. ;-) I like to use this one on the porch to transport cold drinks in ice. I think it looks cool, but then what do I know? ;-)
Last is the start of (yet) another quilt. My cupcake blocks. I did a few smaller ones that I finished as birthday cards, or started to finish as birthday cards- and then I thought that they would be a cute quilt, (or wallhanging for birthday parties) so I dug around and found anything that looked remotely like frosting to me. Some are REALLY frosting looking and some sort of resemble that imaginary food in the movie "Hook". But, it's fun and they are portable as I'm hand appliqueing them.
If they end up as an actual quilt, I'm going to do a wallhanging and make a layer cake with funky candles anyway. I've always thought that would be nice to put in my wallhanging space in the dining room for parties.
