I have been contentedly sitting in my settee, radio playing, needle in hand, cool air blowing, working on this rather intricate tree for the last week. I think I've got the hang of it so it's going a little faster than it was when I started. I had to force myself to work on it some days because it isn't particularly interesting going up and down - up and down using the same fabric day after day. But, I knew it would be worth it so I kept plugging along. It's looking great!
This is the tree on the left side of the lower panel on the Roseville Album quilt. I would be getting close to celebrating the finish if it wasn't for the fact that I need to do another similar tree on the other side of the panel - gasp!
But, I've decided that's why summer was invented; a cozy niche to sit in and a project in my lap.
Speaking of summer, look what my DH brought in this morning. Yum!!!
Here he is working hard digging up some plants he no long wants to keep.
The iris' are still blooming away. They were gorgeous this year.
I just found this fabric at my favorite quilt store (that I've never been able to go to). It is called Country Sampler and is located in Spring Green Wisconsin. When we stayed in Wisconsin I never could justify the 2 - 3 hr. trip. Once we were about 1/2 hour away when we were out inspecting apartments but we were in too big of a hurry to indulge a whim. Sigh~
This is a new line called Riverbanks by Jeanne Horton the owner of Country Sampler. I think this piece would make a wonderful border or alternate blocks. So. . . I ordered some.
My youngest son and his wife moved in the basement last week. It is going to be fun to have them around for a while.
Off to eat as many strawberries as I want.........................
