What I've Been Up To

I spent a great deal of time in my garden yesterday.  It seems like the more I do out there, the more there is to do.  I found some gorgeous peonies growing in the back of the garden where they were hardly seen.  So I cut a few and stuck them in a vase.  They are on my kitchen table and they smell delicious.

We have had a bit of rain over the past week and that has given me some quilting time.  I am working on this quilt today - the sun is starting to come out so I may have to leave the quilt and go outside.

If I do stay inside and sew, I will be putting the strips in between the long zigzag blocks.  I have no idea how big this quilt will be.  I am just playing with it as I work on it.  Mimi is helping me.

Beautiful peonies you have and they will fade fast. Mine do!
Not so our Mimi. Welcome back again Mimi!

Beautiful flowers. We have them in our garden too, but I can't take them inside. Ants all around ...
Love your stripes. You put a good balance into it.
Sweet Mimi. Does she often have her eyes like that? Our Bibi does it more and more, now that she is getting old. Sometimes I want to give her a pair of sunglasses.
