Glorious Baskets Quilt

Here are some pictures I took tonight of my Glorious Baskets quilt. I started hand quilting this in September 2007. I'm on my last row (which is the top row) of blocks to quilt and then I will get to start on the borders. I have a simple vine design I will probally do on the borders. I love this smaller quilting frame I bought to replace my larger one I started out with. It will be so exciting to do the borders and I should be able to hopefully finish this quilt by this September. I have 3 more quilt tops waiting!

Table Runner

Today I finished a double sided table runner that I started about a month ago. Worked on it alittle bit at a time during the past few weeks and today I finished putting the binding on it. I am SO happy to having finished something as I have been working on several quilt projects since last fall. I am going to make a little quilt to match this table runner eventually.

July 4th

Happy 4th of July!!

It was a quiet 4th of July for us today. It was just Mike and I today doing some bar-b-que and doing things around the house. I took a few pictures of some of my flowers and one of Ginger today. She certainly loves to sit and sleep on Oscar's doggy sofa.

I've attached a picture of my Banana plant I have in a hanging basket on our back porch and also a close-up of my Mezoo Doreanthus hanging basket. I need to look up the Mezoo Doreanthus and see if there is a nickname for it.

The last two pictures of the white flower in bloom, I have not been able to find what the name of it is. It grows from bulbs and has long shiny green leaves. Blooms once a year with these white blooms. It reminds me of flowers you would see in a Sci-fi movie going on another planet somewhere in space!
