WOOL DYEING

Yesterday was such a gorgeous day, I decided to do some wool dyeing. I needed some muted greens so I decided to dye some and I love the way they turned out. Didn't take very long for them to dry with the nice sunny weather we had.

SUNFLOWERS, BROCCOLI AND SQUASH

Good morning! I was out and about in the garden this morning and took a few pictures. The birds planted this sunflower and it is HUGE. I counted 23 heads on it and it is about 7 ft. high. I haven't seen one like this before. My broccoli is ready and I think we will be having some for dinner tonight along with chicken and some of my sweet corn. The hubbard squash is really getting big too. I'm looking forward to making some great soup this fall with them.

Well, it's Friday, so have a great weekend everyone!!

HALLOWEEN TABLE RUNNER

Yesterday was a rainy day so I decided I was going to make a Halloween table runner. I finished binding it last night. I'll be early for Halloween this year. Usually I have good intentions, but don't get around to it.
I quilted spider webs in each of the cornerstones. I'm happy with the way this turned out. Happy Holiday Monday to everyone in Canada today!

FINISHED!!!

After 7 years I have finally finished my Vintage Nine Patch quilt. It is wool applique' on cotton. Lots of work stitching on this one. I had my friend hand quilt it for me and she did a gorgeous job. I love how this quilt turned out. It was definitely worth the wait.

COOKIES

I was baking cookies before the crack of Dawn this morning. Baked a few for home and a tin for my Co-workers. A batch of peanut butter cookies and a batch of chocolate chip/oatmeal/walnut cookies.
My husband gave me the thumbs up. Hope you are all having a great day. We got a little rain overnight which my gardens really appreciated.
Stay cool everyone during these days.

MORE BLOOMS IN THE GARDEN

Good morning my friends. I took a few pictures this morning of the recent happenings in my gardens. My perennial sunflowers are blooming and the squash is starting to form. Looks like it is going to be a good crop, more blooms are coming. The weather is a little cooler today, so much better for sleeping and working in the gardens.
Have a great day everyone.

MY GARDEN

My husband took this aerial photo this morning of my vegetable garden. It sure is growing. The heat sure is helping it out. We had lettuce from the garden for lunch and beets will be for dinner with pork chops. Hopefully everyone is staying cool in this heat wave.

SUNDAY MORNING GARDEN STILLS

Good morning everyone. I hope my friends in the USA had a great 4th of July holiday. It's pretty hot here in southern Ontario, but I have been outside before 6 am every morning tending to my gardens for 3 to 4 hours each day. I love it and it is so rewarding watching the plants start to bloom.
I took a few pictures this morning of the gardens to share with you.

ANNIVERSARY

Today my husband and I celebrated our 29th Anniversary. He usually takes me out for a nice dinner, but not this year given the coronavirus situation. I made a nice dinner for the two of us. Australian wine, steak with fried mushrooms and onions, caesar salad and lemon cake for desert. We really enjoyed it.





LILLYS

Both my orange and yellow lillys are blooming now. They are so gorgeous. Cut one of each and a stem of wild yarrow and put them into an old mason jar for my kitchen table. It is a hot one today!

Daylily

Gorgeous orange daylily garden. They are opened up today.

We had a nice rain today and my vegetable garden is flourishing. Took a picture of my pumpkins and squash. Below is the vegetables. I am out hoeing at 6 am each morning.



QUILT LABEL

Good morning! I just finished putting the binding on my Halloween Quilt and stitching on the label I designed for it. I had good intentions to get the quilt finished for last Halloween, but that didn't happened. I will be early for this Halloween.
I love to get projects finished up.
On to the next.
Blessings
