While I Was Quilting

Not everyone was wide awake.

Matter of fact, they were sound asleep just a lot of the time.  They did both wake up from time to time though to be sure I was still working.  (And to see if I would give them a treat.)

I got the western themed quilt quilted last night/this morning.  Now to get the binding done.

I had the tumblers up on the design wall when it occurred to me that there were no chickens in it.  Heaven forbid!  Maybe not everywhere in Texas, but for sure here - chickens are a part of the lifestyle.

I was out in the garden this week tying up tomato vines which are growing like crazy.

I was allowing those "lifestyle parts", the minions, to forage.  This is what happens when you do not watch said minions closely enough.  I think the chrysanthemum in this planter will survive, but it's sure not as happy as it was before they decided to cultivate the soil around it!

Yep, they're back in the hoosegow.  At least they have nice snacks in there.

I'm trying to get my fabric stash better organized.  You can see that I have really sacrificed my perfect (yeah, right!) diet to eat a lot of ice cream.  These containers are just such a good size, sturdy and they stack well.  What can I say?

Looks like I'd better be eating more of this instead, huh?

It's a beautiful hot, sunny day here.  I can't seem to stay inside out of that sun, but I do take it in small bursts.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Hugs and kisses,

Your things are very well organized. I keep the large cuts of fabric organized but my strips and scraps, oh my.

I have never noticed this shape of ice cream containers around here. They are great for storage. Does that mean I need to go buy and eat more too? maybe so! My grandkids are coming to visit me soon and perhaps I'll go shopping for some. ;/

You've been busy. You fabrics are so pretty. I love the designs. Your vegetables look so good. I sure look forward to when our garden starts producing vegetables. Looks like everyone including the dog had a great day.
