My effort to fill a bucket with weeds each day hasn't worked out so well. There have been many rain days and there have been several days when I just did not have time. So this week I am thankful for Round Up. In two days I "weeded" around all of the trees. Now I can focus on the vegetable garden where my time is better spent. The garden is off to a late start because of the cold weather but it's underway now and everything is growing well.We've planted corn, cantaloupe, squash, 5 varieties of peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots and potatoes. The potatoes are supremely happy for some reason. The gardening is done for the day so after a few errands I will spend the rest of the day either sewing or washing out the fabrics I dyed yesterday. I can't think of a better way to spend the day!

I'll send an email to both of you with your certificate number.
I think it's time for some hand dyed fabric so this week I'm offering this piece. It's the leftover cuts from a quilt back and, while it's an odd shape, it's probably close to 2 yards total.
If you are interested just leave a comment on this post and tell me about one quilt project on your lifetime list of quilts you really want to make. For me the project is Karen K. Stone's Indian Orange Peel. I've had the pattern for years and do want to make it "some day".
