Took some pictures of some of the wild flowers that are blooming all around in the woods. They have such pretty colors. Yellows, whites, pinks and the Orange lilies. All are growing wild.
|These grow wild all over - so pretty.|
Just wanted to share this. It a picture of the side of the house, the main floor – the ivy has a story to it. We’ve met a women here who grew up in this house, in fact her parents built it. She told us about the ivy. On a trip to the east coast her aunt visited Mount Vernon – George Washington’s house. While there she snipped off a piece of the ivy growing around the place and slipped it in her purse. When they got back here she stuck it in the ground. It has been growing like crazy ever since. At one time it completely covered the stones on this wall but was cut back to sell the house. But here it comes again.
Yesterday I took my quilt over to the Historical Center and it is now officially entered in this years quilt show.

AND believe it or not we’ve opened a booth in an Antique/Handicraft Mall……EGAD a job. Actually it isn’t really. After the booth is set up with our stuff – the people there do all the selling and collecting money etc. Be interesting to see if it sells. It opens tomorrow – So have to go over there early and get it set up. Today we’ll be making tags for everything.
I’ve almost finished one of the quilts I’m making. Just have to do the machine embroidery on it. And add the label. Took me awhile to figure out how to set up the machine for the embroidery – it’s been a couple of years since I’ve done any. First the laptop wouldn’t recognize the program and wanted the installation disk. Had to find that! Ended up tearing my whole “craft” cubby –a closet under the stairs – apart. It wasn’t in there. But I did find a lot of things I forgot I had. Then remembered the books and disks were in the big antique trunk I keep in my sewing area. And of course by then I’d remembered how to access the program and it was working fine – didn’t need the disk!
Was reading about a vaccine for Shingles – 1 out of every 3 older people get shingles! WOW – Think I’ll call the docs office and inquire about it. No sense getting something you can prevent.
