Take a look at this Joseph's Coat rose today! Isn't it beautiful? It will eventually climb the trellis where it will meet my two Hops vines. This is just one rose with so many different colored buds/blossoms.
Here is the newest picture (and probably last) of the rose I posted several days ago. It's truly amazing to watch the color change by the day.
While out walking the lower part of the lawn this morning, I took another view of the hollyhock bed.
I'm getting things ready for my retreat in mid-August as well as getting my applique sampler done. I have five blocks done and the sixth one is underway. I had one piece appliqued, had started another and basted a third when I found a flaw in the background fabric. Part of the flaw would have been covered by an appliqued flower, but the other part wasn't. So I removed all three pieces and moved them to a new piece of background. That's one reason it is always wise to buy more fabric than you think you'll need!
Okay, Di, how are the yo-yos coming? I'm keeping my end of the bargain--how about you? Thanks, Sheila for the Brett Cullen info--who knew? But Coke over Pepsi? Could be a deal breaker ;-)
Good night, all! Are you remembering how special you all are?
