August 30,2013

My orphans are still waiting patiently on the design wall.I pieced a few small ones into larger blocks and added sashing to a few.  Maybe over the long weekend I'll get it put together.

Still using up tomatoes from our garden.

Taking photos in a friend's garden.

Lord Baltimore Hibiscus. Blooms are as large as a dinner plate! Gorgeous.

I didn't feel like piecing or painting or much of anything. So I pulled out this top and started quilting. Lovely, mindless work.

went ahead and made binding, and got it sewn on.
