No Sewing, Only Yard Work

Not much sewing going on when there is so much yard work to catch up on before winter. We down sized our yard when we moved into this house two years ago, I thought there would be less to do but somehow it still seems like there is sooooo much clipping and pruning to do. I cut back the ivy, a couple of bushes and hubby mowed the lawn and that was 2 trips to the recycling depot, I can only put so much yard waste into the back of my Subaru.
Since I don't have any progress to show on stitching, I took a couple of pictures of these older quilts "old to me but new to you". I haven't shown these yet. The top quilt is a Blended quilt I made over 5 years ago and I would guess the crow and chicken stitcheries are just as old.
The chickens haven't been quilted yet....on my "to do" list...along with many other flimsies. I should finish this one, I like how the tea dying turn out and it would look nice in my kitchen.

Hi Wendy, I'm not sure how I got to your blog, but I love your work. The polka dot girl quilt is going to be very special, is it a block of the month?
I'll be checking back,

I love it all - you have the best stitcheries! In fact this has reminded me about something - hmmm - time to do a little digging. LOL

Very cute "old to you, new to me" quilts. Love those stitchery ones - but as you know I like those type. Good luck on the yard work - it's not the most fun thing to do, but there's something rewarding about it when it's all bedded down for the winter.

Hugs - karen

Great quilts there Wendy. I love doing stitchery and I know you do too. Only you actually make something. I just do it then put it away.
