We had a couple of loud rain storms lately, and I didn't stop the man from mowing and cleaning up the yard. Spring is here, and the grass was getting thick and unruly. He also added the new layer of mulch to the gardens and gravel to the side of the driveway for drainage. Most of the garden plants are self sustaining and don't require much attention, but the lawn is another story. He is constantly trying to get grass to grow in the hard, red clay. Gives him a challenge!
|Flowers and shrubs starting to fill in the rock gardens.|
|Gray gravel along the drive. Looks good!|
|He did the patch in the back, too, next to the compost staging area.|
|Cute wallhanging for a grandchild's room|

|This is a modern art quilt, meant to represent a window.|
|The customer requested randomly spaced horizontal lines.|
I think Mr W did a great job with this custom quilting task.
|He loaded this at the end of the day, ready to quilt when we start again.|
|I made the label on the computer yesterday after work, and will get it sewn into the binding along with the sleeve today.|
I hope this entry hasn't made you too drowsy...it would be nice to spend some time on the porch watching the baby squirrels scamper up and down the tree, or the birds visiting the feeders, but the quilting comes first and we have to keep at it to make the customers happy. Don't get me wrong, I love the quilting, but the siren song of sunny warm weather and the awakening of the flora and fauna is strong. We want to go out and play!
Our daughter comes tomorrow, so there will be another dreaded task happening...cleaning. Have mercy! Until later...
