Not Much Quilting......

...but I have been doing a lot of gardening in the past couple of weeks.  Mostly pulling weeds and digging up and dividing perennials and also doing some planting.  Here are some box plants I have to plant out in my garden today.

I have also been working on my hexagon quilt and I have started, yes you heard right, started on a new quilt.  I saw this one on Rose Marie's blog.  Here are a few of the 28 blocks I am going to need.  I figure if I do one block per day I can have this top done in about a month.   I have 10 blocks done so far and another one to go today.

That leaves me lots of time to enjoy my garden.   My yellow Columbine in full bloom.

My chives are looking pretty.

And then there is my blue and white iris.  This is my favourite iris in my garden.  I was really worried about it because last summer some kind of fungus attacked it.  I had to pull a lot of leaves that had rotted away at ground level.  But it came up healthy again this spring.

And how can I post pretty things without putting in a photo of Mimi.  She is feeling much better as you can see.  Here she is in the cat bed I crocheted a couple of years ago.  Just napping away.

Beautifull garden, Hetty!
I am still pulling weeds.
Glad Mimi is there and is okay.
