I have been staring at my dead-head roses for weeks now and finally went out front and trimmed them. Luckily, they weren't all dead!! They even smelled as good as they looked.
I did get a little sewing done, working on my Mount Mellick Di Ford project. I am trying now to decide on the circles that go on the diamonds... Next up will be four hexagons in each corner; then the border goes on. I may add more flowers in the vase but I wanted to start with this. Can you see my butterfly and bird??? Such a gorgeous quilt. I didn't want it to be too busy which is why the center is not filled in. It'll be easier to add items, I think once I get more of it onto the center piece. Any ideas for colors for the little circles? I'm thinking maybe green? They will also be the centers for the four hexagons in the corners.
We did have a little visit from the youngest grandchild, Eli, who is now nearly 7 months. My daughter in law's family from Dresden was visiting and we invited them over for an American barbecue. Julia's grandmother had never had a hamburger; her brother had never tried corn on the cob! They were real troopers to try it all (along with the salami, cheese and beer I had, too!! vbg)
