The weekend

It was a glorious weekend!  DD2 was home from college and we had a blast!  I miss her so much.  She insisted on my chicken pot pie for dinner on Friday night, so I had it ready for her when she arrived.  She needed a few clothes so we went shopping and then ate at our new favorite place, Chopstick House.  It was awesome.  I even bought a few things for myself.  We came home and took a nap and then went back out and bought plants for us to plant our gardens.  Ever since she was young she wanted her "own" garden.  I dug up a spot and she had been tending her own garden ever since.  First she weeded her garden, then she planted the annuals, Impatients do so well around the border of her garden because of all the shade.  Each year we add a perennial.  Her favorites are lilies.  She has a few now so we added a Fox Glove.  I remember them from my grandmother's garden.  She told me that the spots were from the bees walking into the flower with muddy feet!  So here is a photo or 2 of her garden! (I planted the pots)


Now in case you didn't think that I did anything, quilty, I did dig out TUQ to put the binding on, as she wanted to take it with her.  I had to move the UT quilt to get to TUQ and Mosen liked it just fine as it gave him a great place to sleep.  I need to put a sleeve on the UT quilt which is why it is even out in the first place!  Isn't he cute?  I had both Aiden and Hallie "helping" me with my binding this weekend too.  I should be able to finish it tonight while watching the Red Wings play.
Now, I found this interesting item on the web too.  It is a site that has blogs about quilts all in one spot arranged by state and country.  My blog was there!!  Maybe yours will be too.  Go and check it out, Quilting Bloggers.  Let me know if you are there too.

The garden is so green. Winter really has gone away!
I didn't make the cut for the quilter's blog ;-(, but it was fun seeing all the familiar names and faces. What a great resource!

The garden is waaaayyy more grown than mine, your hostas are twice the size, and my lillies are just now starting to shoot up.
I checked out the Quilt Bloggers, wow, what a sight! thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks for posting about my Quilting Bloggers site. I appreciate the support!

Natalie, you can add yourself to the list. I added tonnes of blogs before it went "live", but any quilting blogger can submit their own site for inclusion. (I'll try to email you privately too.)

Happy quilting!
