I call this Through My Garden Window. This was an interesting and fun project. I saw a quilt at a Quilt show and noticed how the blocks were made and came home, pulled out a bunch of florals, cut squares and made the blocks in one night. Then thanks to my design wall, I finally got a layout that I liked. Came out pretty good. A few of my friends liked it enough to make one of their own. One woman, I helped her with her layout and instead of one floral border, we actually carried the floral of the blocks inside, to the outside. It was very cool.
Yesterday I had a lovely mani/pedi and wanted to show off my pretty toes! I always do a french tip finish on my toes, and just a plain clear polish on my hands. For many years I had acrylic nails, and liked many things about them! But it sure did a number on my natural nails, that I have been suffering with ever since. Working at the hospital means no more acrylic nails, but I really need to be more regular at getting them taken care of. It will be harder when I am doing more gardening, since I tend to just go for it and not put on a pair of gloves. Something about feeling the dirt, and the release of the roots of the weeds, that gives me pleasure.
I'm pretty proud of myself that I have stuck with my quilt photo a day intention. I'd love to know if you are following along. Leave me a comment and I'll send you a small gift!!!
