I've been working on my Kick in the Pants quilt.
Yay!! I'm having a good time with it.
What happened to this picture? - not very good quality. It must be because I took it at night
I did sew all the rows together, added the little yellow flange and I've sewn on two of the borders.
This is a close of the border print.
Where I live roses grow super well.
So I have lots of different rose bushes around my house.
I thought I would show you my one of my favorites.
I've loved roses with a blend of orange & yellow since I was in High School.
I planted it front and center in my back yard - so I see it as soon as I walk in my house and from the dining room and kitchen.
Now check out this rose bush. It's a Jackson-Perkins Rose.
Do you see that it is a blend of pink and white. The plant is about 7 years old.
And this is the first year it has produced two colored flowers. Previously they were solid pink.
This is another favorite of mine. I love the many ruffles of petals this rose has.
And this one I consider my birthday flower. At our old house this plant would bloom each year on my birthday. How cool is that? At the house I'm in now it starts blooming a couple weeks before my birthday, but I still consider it my birthday flower.
Last year I planted sweet peas. Oh I love that they reseed themselves and I have flowers again this year with no effort on my part.
Have you met Sandra Kaye yet? She's a girl that loves color! And I enjoy her blog, there is always something fun and inspiring over there.
