Round Robin Ready to Mail

I am part of a Round Robin project over at the Quilt and Needle. Seems like it took forever to get this one ready to send on. Deb, the medallion owner, is doing this for her husband, and wanted fabrics that felt western, or like leather..... I had two pieces in my stash that seemed perfect! I had seen this blended ninepatch idea and decided to use it to turn the medallion on point. these small nine patch blocks are finished at 2 1/4", and there are over 100 of them! It will feel so good to get it in the mail tomorrow to the next participant.

Blue Iris !!!!

What a wonderful surprise!  I have a clump of these delicious blue variegated bearded iris in my yard!!!!

It is so much fun to work my way through a first blooming cycle in our new home..... 

I only wish there was enough of them to divide and share with my friend Dean, who has shared many wonderful plants with me already this season.  

Now that i removed the black plastic out from under them, maybe I can coax them to multiply quicker.....   I'm sure some good fertilizer will help tremendously. 

I am also the lucky owner of several bunches of this very pristine, pure white bearded iris!  

I  finally  figured out how to upload pics from my new  phone to my photobucket site..... 

There are lots more pictures there.... you can check out the link....

Garden progress

I feel like I'm actually making some progress in my garden!   I'm still harvesting black plastic out from under the barkdust.... but I feel like that will be long term project.  One section at a time......  I have to keep telling myself that it's a "work in progress" and probably will be for many years.....

I'm not making as much progress in the sewing area... seems like it's one or the other.  If I can just keep up with my exchange projects until school lets out,  I'll be happy!

This is a before view.... now if I can figure out howto get pics out of my new android camera.....

What a Rainbow!

for the second week in a row,  on Wednesday evening, we have had the most awesome rainbows!  this is the one from last week.  It ends, in my neighbor's pasture!    last night, it was in almost the same exact spot!

There is nothing like looking out your kitchen window to something this spectacular!  Last night, my camera was getting it's battery recharged.

I am so blessed.
