Slow She Goes

Are you sensing a theme here on my blog? Slow it is! Since not much quilting is happening here, I’ll share a few beauties from our garden.

This is a tiny little Iris that I believe is named Bumble Bee.

Hubs is the gardener around here. As a college professor, he is teaching part time during the summer meaning he is home a lot more. He enjoys his time out in the garden.

I’m not sure of the name for this Iris, but I love those speckles on the falls.

Both Hubs and I have to find a new balance with the end of the school year, and it takes a few weeks. Not complaining! I enjoy having Hubs around!

Lilly of the Valley. My favorite Spring flower. Sweet scent! We have a large patch on the north side of our house that I can pick and keep in the kitchen. I love walking in the kitchen and smelling that sweet scent. Of course I love their scent out in the yard too!

How has your week gone? Does your sewing/quilting time change with the seasons?

How did I do on last’s week To-Do List?

  1. Hobo bag – I bought and washed accent fabric for the bag this week. But no sewing.
  2. Work on BOMs: Machine Quilting Block Party and One Block Wonders May block – I made a little progress on the OBW.

To-Do List for this week. Oh my! My list is not changing from last week!

  1. Hobo bag.
  2. Curvy Quilters meet Thursday, I’ll work on the BOMs.
  3. I’m adopting a WIP from a local lady. It is a Trip Around the World. I pick it up today to finish the top for her. I’ll share more next week.

Linking to To-Do Tuesday at Stitch All the Things and Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.

    Beautiful Iris flowers, last year I bought some miniature ones, and in a pot they did so well. My One Block Wonder, think this month I will have to give that a miss, lots going on, Hugh not so well, and my time seems to be stretched out way too thin. And SLOW, nothing wrong with that, and a good way to be sometimes.

    The flowers are absolutely gorgeous! I always find it is quite an adjustment when routines have to be switched up, no matter if it’s kids or adults! No sewing this week, I am missing it a lot. Hopefully will be back to the machine in two weeks or so!
