Hi everyone! How was your week? I bet you can guess how mine was. Just a little while longer and then this night mare semester will be over.
So, here's what I accomplished this week:
Yep, these are the remaining multicolored Steps to the Garden blocks. I'm feeling a little iffy about the block made with the bright gumball fabric. They look like flowers to me, but I'm afraid the block might not fit with the others. To check, I took a picture of all 12 of the blocks together:
I laid them out on the grass because they're garden blocks, and because it was really nice outside. In retrospect I should have put the gumball block in the middle to check how it fit in, but my brain was not working really well. I blame all the pollen in the air. Still not sure about that block.
The only other thing I worked on this week (besides student papers) were a few more blocks for the strings quilt that I'm making for donation:
I'd swear I made a fourth one, but it does not seem to be there! These blocks are super easy but they take a *lot* of strings. If you want to use up some fabric, make one of these quilts. I threw in some other florals I had to help fill out all the strings I need as well. I'll be happy to get rid of those. And someone please remind me to stop saving such narrow strings! The pattern for this quilt is in Amanda Jean Nyberg's new book No Scrap Left Behind.
Since we kind of have a "floral" theme, how about a couple of pictures from the garden? It turns out that the ugly bushes in front of the house are all azaleas:
Who knew? I'm still taking them out, though, because they really have been neglected and look pretty bad. But one thing I'm not taking out is this tree:
It turns out that the pink trees at the back of the property are pink dogwoods! I'm not sure I'd ever seen one of these in person. It's so pretty!
That's the dispatch from here! With all the azaleas and other flowering bushes around here, I'll be dodging the bees while we're working outside this weekend. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
