It was a wonderful weekend to be in the garden. Cool mornings that gave way to breezy afternoons. And, I took full advantage of it.
This bloomed. The daylily is called Bernina. And, what a showy flower for such a fantastic name. My Mom bought it and gave it to me because I quilt with a Bernina.
I know this daylily is yellow, but it’s so pale, it looks green.
I had a couple of blooms from it this weekend.
Rob put these blue pots in hangers that we bought on vacation last year on our front porch. They have purslane in them that should drape over the edges very nicely.
And, of course, there was time for quilting. You’ll need to click these to see the detail, but the silk house has a lawn and a frame now.
For the lawn, I did a free motion zig-zag. I set my machine to the widest zig it would do and just went to town, leaving some spaces open. I had to use a hoop for this because the zig-zag pulled the fabric in, but that was okay. It looks so much like grass, I can hardly believe it. Next is reinforcing the lines between the grass and all the other stuff. Hopefully, that won’t be too much.
That means I’m out to the corners. And, again, I am undecided. But, something will come to me. I pulled out three ideas yesterday and none of them made me swoon. It’s a good thing I started this early.
Everybody have a great Monday. I’m looking forward to a couple days off work this week. Found time is like found money. It must be spent.
