I sort of forgot to post yesterday. I realized yesterday evening that I had not done a post but also realized that I didn't really have anything to post about. I'm doing quite a bit of yardwork with weed control and trimming shrubs
Unlike most of you real gardeners, when I say I'm "trimming shrubs" it means that once every 5 years or so I go and do this. These 2 boxwoods were so big that the foliage completely filled the back of the pickup truck. They will either live or not and, if not, I'll plant something else.
But I also have the sides of the guest house and garage that look really ratty like this and I'm trying to to be so brutal with them. That's what I'm working on now. So this just isn't anything I'm interested in blogging about daily.
There just isn't any sewing or quilting going on right now.
Because inside the house I've become fixated with finishing the beaded wall. The mess was getting out of hand and that means it's time to wrap it up. Late last night I finished be rest of the beads. Today I will start finishing off the background and I'm going to focus on it until it's done.
After this my goal is to finish the dye sink backsplash. I have tiles to do another section of the basement but I'm really trying to talk myself out of doing another section because I'm starting to look like a crazy person. Chris is not helping. I discussed it with him this morning and his response was "Yes, you will look like a crazy person but it looks a lot better than concrete block."
You probably won't hear from me tomorrow because I'll be in the basement listening to a book and filling in white tile.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
