When we moved here 32 years ago, the back yard was a total mess. we cleared out a section in the back and opened up more than half the space. We spent the next 15 years landscaping, building a Japanese Rock Garden and a beautiful deck. And more recently Carrie and I built a back patio of slate stones.
In the furthest back part there has always been these trillium that appear and bloom in the spring. they are a weed found all over Louisiana and Mississippi. It looks like something one would cultivate doesn't it.
I really need to make a piece featuring the lowly trillium.
I have some big plans for the grandbaby soon. I am working on setting him up in some classes we can take together. Fun, more on that later. I have to go to the Zoo this week, so I can grab him and get him in the wagon and wheel him through to the back. I used to work at the zoo. part of my job was to help prepare the food for the various animals and birds. Amazingly, a lot of them got raw onions for dinner.
And in quilting news, I was able to get Diamond Dogs on the frame and quilt a meandering pattern all over it. I have to say, the quilting actually
improved the look of the quilt. I really like it.
It is very flat, which is a good thing.
I got it trimmed up tonight. I was able to cut and apply the binding, but still need to sew it down.
I am still working on the binding for the Triangles quilt. One more side!
I am linking up to Freemotion by the River so hop on over there and see what the others are working on. Maybe add your own linky!
I spent some time this morning
with Trinity who did some dry needling on my back and hip. I feel a lot better but the places she worked on are sore. I am hoping I can continue the dry needling for eternity.
