While I am not a circus goer, I do love a bright happy quilt. This little gem was for sale at the quilt show and depicts what I suspect is every little kids idea of the circus. Myself at a young age included.
The reality of course is much different, but that's a topic for another time. It is simply quilted although someone took the time to quilt the different areas in different ways.
I was smitten with it and it was at a very nice price.
The quilt show itself was nicely done. Many beautiful quilts. I got there early on Saturday and the place was hopping a half hour in. I snapped a few pics here and there. I got no maker information as these were just pics on the fly. Enjoy.
Bright orange Phoebe pants came out of the sewing room this past weekend. These are done in a smooth summer weight linen.
I wore them yesterday when I took my Mom to the movies. We couldn't remember the last time we had been to a movie together. I know the last movie I remember seeing at a theater was Hidalgo. So our pick yesterday was The Jungle Book and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Worlds better than the completely animated version I saw as a child. Highly recommended for kids of all ages from 10 to 100.
I had close to 6 yards of heavy white linen left over from making the reversible coverlet and decided to use it up as a summer weight coverlet. A single layer with a deep willow green linen binding all the way around.
It was a bugger. Doing anything king sized is, but it's done and ready for use the moment the real heat hits.
The garden did get a decent clean out last Friday. I yanked woody lavender, weeded down clover, pulled a few other things that didn't come up and planted in Black and Bloom Salvia and a couple of Hot Lips Salvia. Some red lambs ear went in too. New variety that looks nothing like the traditional fuzzy lambs ear, but I'm told the hummers love it.
After all, this garden is really done to cater to my favorite little birds anyway.
This is what the carnage looked like in process.
We need to get our deer deterrents out. I planted 3 rhododendrons in different areas around the property. So far no deer damage. I hope they make it as I have no problem dressing up the woodland boundaries with them.
Oh and a half whiskey barrel was planted with some herbs and two cherry tomato plants Gene brought home.
The planting may be just about done, but the tending is just beginning!
Parting shot: Jail time.
