A bit nippy overnight, but a cool, windy, glorious day. I did some hand stitching, cut out the pieces for one of my new applique blocks, made the stems and overlay and basted part of the pieces onto the background. Now I can't find the green thread that I need! I have searched high and low to no avail, but luckily I will be in a quilt shop tomorrow that carries what I need! I have lots of other things to do until I get the thread.
Mowing the lawn was a priority today and I had to rake a few places and I did more weeding. Really need to weedeat, but I keep procrastinating about that.
These are pictures of my shrub roses. They form a U shape on the west side of the house and are interspersed with sedum. The sedum has overtaken most of the available space, so I am in the process of pulling it up. These roses are small but smell wonderful and will bloom from now until late fall.
