Moving along....

House warming was a huge success.  Lots of friends and lots of good food and drinks.


I have started #20 Cherry Tree block.

Next birthday block (fire engine red/tea dyed color tan) is on its way to Maine. Neen, if you see this, happy birthday.

It's, also, that time of year that the hydrangeas are ready to pick and dry, so I told my dear husband that I was decorating the garage.  Isn't it lovely?  LOL.

He's already asking how long they will be there.  Apparently he just doesn't appreciate all the loveliness.  LOL. 

Gotta get some stitching in tonight.  There is a terrible storm abrewing and I don't want to lose my light.  


  1. I love the look of the hydrangeas. And they go so well with the beautiful red car! How long will they take and what will you do with them when you finish? I am working on #7 and it looks like the same basket as #20.

  2. I just finished piecing this One Block Wonder and now I'm off to prep for an evening of BTCT and some TV! Love your flowers, I've never seen them green before. Mine are purple and blue!

  3. I have some too and would love to dry them .Can tou tell me how you do it! Thanks

  4. What is it with guys and their ladders? They just don't understand all the other creative purposes one can get out of something like that.

    I think your garage looks very chic!
    Interesting how all the hydrangeas dry differently...mine tend to stay ivory with just a touch of the green sometimes.

  5. I saw my first green hydrangeas the otehr day, they are fabulous.

  6. Enjoy your stitching time. :)
    Lovely hydrangeas.



My husband built me some shelves for the "stash" closet so that I no longer have to stack all my large Rubbermaids on top of eac...
