Party Prep Begins

My weekend was very busy! We had quilt-till-you-wilt day on Sat and I managed to finish the binding on my little wedding memories quilt. This one will be going to Brazil in September to Karen's mom and dad. I used up all the left over fabrics from her quilt in this one. I also learned that I love the disappearing 9 patch quilt!

A peony from my garden. So beautiful. Mine bloom much later than everyone else's because I have so much shade from the woods we back up to.
Sunday was filled with work in the yard. I even got the men to help! Here is DH and DS along with Laxy putting up the new gazebo. They didn't put the top on but I will show that later once it is done. To the right of the patio area is DD2's garden. It is always so beautiful! I weeded and mulched it yesterday so it is looking even more beautiful. She has huge Aisiatic Lillies that are ready to begin opening and then it will be gorgeous. I will try to remember to take photos of them too.
Do you remember me going shopping at my friend Cori's last week? I bought this pattern and these charm packs to make Christmas gifts with. (but after the party!) I need to clean up the sewing room(aka living room) for the party. This means all sewing stops. = ( I finished the Designer Mystery BOM top on Sunday too. Now I need to make the back and the sewing room can be packed up until July. No photos of that top right now but I will take some soon. You can see Mosen "helping" me to clean the sewing room too. My cats are such wonderful helpers!
After my garden work I feel really old and kind of like someone beat me up! It's an Ibuprophen Monday!

I SO understand the ibuprophen monday!! All my muscles, in fact my whole body, screamed "NOOOO" this morning. *lol* Prepare yourself: after 50 it's only getting worse haha!!
Hope you can miss the sewingarea for so long!

I love the wedding quilt. I do not like DP quilts but your color choices makes this quilt wonderful.

Love the picture of your helper, it is important that seating will be comfortable LOL.
