I finished the
little big boy's quilt early this morning. His name is Bill, so I marked it for him real good!
I don't know that it's altogether fair to call it a Texas quilt, but it makes me think of some of what people think of when they think of Texas, especially young people - horses and cowboys.
This was such a fun quilt to make. The tumblers just went together so easily! And the bright, cheery colors and fabrics and designs just made it that much better.
It's been through the washer and dryer now and is soft and crinkly and totally huggable.
I had thought I would put a red and white binding on the quilt, but when I tried it, I just didn't like it. The green seems to work pretty well, don't you think? Our church congregation will pray over this quilt on Sunday morning and then give it to young Bill. He will have a tangible piece of comfort to take with him when he goes to his new home. I really pray that he will be blessed there and that he will be a blessing. He is so incredibly sweet. I wish you could see him.
I have one lonely zinnia that just grew of its own volition out in the garden. It's the only one I have this year anywhere on our property, and I think it is doing its best to have a good showing. It has bloomed like this for months, even in drought situations. Got to love it!
And this little rose is the most electric orange I've ever seen! The little rain we had last week has encouraged it to bloom some more.
I know we're supposed to be moving into Autumn here, but you'd never know it. We're in the upper nineties all week according to the weather forecasters. But as long as I'm in here in the air conditioning, it sure does look pretty outside.
Hope everything in your world is behaving itself!
Hugs and kisses,
