It's been a rainy year so far in my part of the world. The grass and flowers have taken off after a slow start from a cooler than usual spring. Mr. CPA is in charge of the yard but likes my input on where and sometimes how to do things. Having been raised on a farm growing things was part of daily life for me but for my Army brat husband it has been a learning process over the years.
I was surprised when he came up with an idea for using something again. Do you remember this? The long box contained the 12 foot long roller bars and frame pieces for my Innova.
Well now it is going to be holding something else. Hopefully it will last a few years.
It has been painted and filled with potting soil to make a flower box at the base of the deck.
How's that for re-using something? Hopefully the flowers that go into it will add some beauty to the yard. Here are some of the lilies that are blooming in front of it now.
This is some of the flowers on the hydrangea bushes now. They have grown so much! I'll have to get a picture of the whole bushes tomorrow, if it stops raining.
No pictures of quilty things today but I have made a little progress on a few things. I am practicing my free motion skills with the longarm on a baby quilt panel. Pictures will come after it is finished because it is full on blue markings right now. At my two monthly quilt group meetings, yesterday and today, I also worked a little on my Scrappy Trips and finished piecing the units for my new Churn Dash quilt I cut out last month. Now the blocks need to be assembled.
I've been trying to make up my mind about furniture for our spare bedroom this week. I found some that I like but I'm not sure how it will fit in the room. Decisions, decisions, and I have to live with the consequences. Maybe you can help me decide.
If you were furnishing a room for guests would you do 2 twin beds, bunk beds or a daybed with a trundle? OR Would you just put in a double bed? (Queen is not an option.)
OR If you have to stay at someone else's home for a visit which of the above would you rather get to sleep on with/without your spouse?
