Here is the side of the house.  Hibicus are growing nicely.  The other shows the driveway with the new layer of mulch the yard guy put down on Saturday.  Hopefully holds me another 18 months like the last



Here is the other side of the back yard right outside the door.  I took out the old vegetable garden and the sour orange tree and the hibiscus are finally growing.  Can't wait till they cover the fence and I can't see the yard next door.


Here's the backyard.  It makes a nice place for me to read Sundays.  I'll be glad when the weather gets a little cooler.  Here are the before and after pictures.


Well I'm sorry to say there are not a lot of quilts flying out the door since the ALS ones got finished the end of July.  I have a couple done but they are waiting on quilting and binding.  I'm just finishing up my yard and trying to get into the swing of studying again.  The paralegal class is a lot more reading than I ever imagined.  I'll post that veggie magic tile I have on the table as soon as I take a pic then the rest as they come off the frame.  Keep watching.

Going thru my fabrics last night and trying to organize some things since I need to get back to studying at least half the week and I realized I have forgotten to post a picture of my veggies magic tile.  I finished it last week and put it on the kitchen table.  I love the idea of a quilt for a tablecloth and what better for the kitchen than veggies.  When I get home I'll take a picture and add it.  I just love the magic tile pattern.

In the mean time pulling out some fabrics to use for some charity quilts for East Pasco guild habitat projects and working on the challenge patterns the girls picked out for me.   Think I'll get stuff cut up and then between studying I'll sew when time allows.   I find I'm more motivated if I don't have to stop and cut all the time.  I still have 3 or 4 ready to go on the frame I just have to piece some backing and I'll post those also.  Need to finish up 2 for some friends in Wesley Chapel.  Be watching for pictures soon as I need to finish the donation for the veterans hospital lobby as well.


Here's my latest.  Just came off the frame quilted Sunday night.  It's a queen size that is for a swap called Quilts for Quilters.  My swap partner ended up being one of the best longarm quilters I've seen so I was a little intimidated.  But God gives us all differentl talents so I did the best I could.  She likes pink and this screams - I AM PINK.  Adding the binding this week and popping it in the mail.
