The long stretch under the apple trees is all barked now and looks so good. It will aid in water retention and weed control all summer. Item #1 checked off list. The grapes and apples have been pruned and the grapes tied up. That is #2 and #3 off the list. The raspberries are nearly done. We will finish them after this next rain spell. It feels good to be on top of the game for once. Tomorrow I will put together the list of seeds I have left from last year and decide what I need to order for this year. Do you realize that it is nearly time to get out food plants started?
A bit ago, I mentioned Mother passed away without finishing these pillowcases and I was going to learn to cross stitch. After trying it, I decided that I definitely do NOT like to cross stitch and will not be finishing them. They are going out in Friday’s mail to a friend who loves doing this type work and she will finish them. Life is too short to get hung up on something I really don’t enjoy. I won’t live long enough to do all that I do enjoy.
I was given somewhere over 75 of these strips of various colors. They are the end pieces when the factory straightens the roll. Since I am in a “use it up” frame, I put these together and quilted it. They are only 40″ wide, so it makes a nice small child size quilt. Previously, I used several of the pieces in other items, so still have enough to make a total of three of these little quilts. That’s another finish and I love finishes as well as starts.
