These quilted hills in the center window are much less pointed and I think look better. I also did straight line quilting in the fields.
I wasn't sure how to quilt the pasture but decided to just stitch around the sheep. Good enough.
The right window had both the background stitching and a field.
The left window and this window both had stalks of feathered wheat. I really like how they turned out.
There is just one more block to embroider for Miss Jane's Best.
I've been in rather a slump with my sewing machine. After the embroidery is finished, that will be the next sewing project which will then turn into the next quilting project.
I'm still enjoying spring, the color green and all the flowers. This year I bought some hanging baskets for my porch.
The baskets look very nice hanging from the porch and the begonias perk up the hosta bed.
The hanging baskets are going to do double duty this summer. Our daughter and her husband have listed their house for sale. To give it more presentation, she's going to use the hanging baskets and planters.
The porch faces the east. Several weeks ago I showed you a bleeding heart that wasn't very big. She's in full bloom now.
While the bleeding heart on the west side of the house is starting to slow down blooming.
The peonies were just starting to bloom nicely last Sunday.
We've had several heavy rains since then so they are looking rather bedraggled.
I didn't think the poppies were going to bloom this year but they finally sent up buds and started opening a couple days ago.
I wish the blooms lasted longer but they don't so it's enjoy them now, they'll be gone in 2 weeks.
I don't know what the name of this succulent ground cover is but it is going crazy and is 8" tall! It loves all the rain and is starting to bloom. By the end of this week it will look more yellow than green.
I'll be showing you an updated picture of this spot in a week or two. The lilies are so tall and full of buds, I never remember what colors they are. I do know some of them will be white from previous planted Easter lilies.
