My goal last weekend was to work on Erik's quilt.
He is such a sweet man, so funny and smart. I really admire him. He also tells the best stories about coming over from Sweden and makes everyone laugh.
He married my mom but because they live in a different state, I haven't gotten to know him very well until recently.
I do know that he will like this panel - and be very appreciative.
So I started ....
by sewing fabric around the blocks.
And then - of my gosh Foxtails got in the way!
I realized I had to clean up my yard. That damn gardener wanted to charge me $400.00 to weed wack them.
Wait - here's a picture.
It does look bad doesn't it? It's 100 feet to the end of the property.
Not having $400, I started weed wacking them myself.
And in the meanwhile I called a guy off Craig's list. Now that's scary. You never know who will show up!
A nice guy named Joe came out (with his buddy) and cut them all down in 2 hours!!!
2 guys for 2 hours equals 4 hours!
Which means that damn gardener wanted $100 an hour!!
And Joe only charged me $60 to do the whole yard. Which is about what I usually pay.
So guess who's looking for a new gardener?
And then I got back to work on Erik's quilt.
And for your viewing enjoyment:
Lily and Marzipan sitting on the couch together.
Hahaha - aren't they cute together? And where did that dog learn to sit?
Linda - enjoying the little things in life.
