Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

 November and December are finish up months. I made a couple of black 16 patches this week and hope to make a couple of brown ones tomorrow. Then one each will get some flying geese added to make them into the final 2 stars I need to finish off this quilt.


The morning started with me opting out of walking the dog like I have all week. I need to start in again on that tomorrow. Em and Greg took him to the trailhead near us for a nice walk this morning and he enjoyed sniffing all the new scents. Then I took Emily to horses for her riding lesson and the barn was a madhouse! Lots of people practicing for the upcoming show over Thanksgiving week. A quick stop at Culvers for lunch and then a little sewing time before the F1 sprint race. After posting and linking up to the RSC with the rest of the group - I'm headed out to tackle the garden and get the tall grasses up and out and get it tilled for planting. Yes, our growing season is a wee bit strange down in Florida. Too hot where I put the garden for the late spring, summer and early fall. It should work well for my winter garden though now. I'm off to play in the dirt and hope to visit the linkup's later tonight.

Oh have fun playin in your garden spot!! I used to love to put my hands in the
dirt in the early Spring...We don't have a veggie or flower garden here, just a patio shrub spot.
I am still fluffing about trying to find borders for the 2 web quilts..the are 26" square and I want to make them rectangular...so far, I have a cute Christmas doggie print for a top and bottom 3" border--but need a header border on top to make them long enough for the girls...preferably some kind of Christmas blender...hugs, Julierose

Those black stars will be a nice contrast to the lighter colors! Hope your garden does well for you, too. What will you plant?

I always think it is so nice that you are gardening now while the rest of us in the state get cold! The quilt is looking great.
