My Mother's Day

I hope all of my fellow moms had a great Mother's Day!

We had a pretty productive weekend.  I'd decided for Mother's Day, instead of gifts, that I wanted to plant flowers.  It'd been something like 5 years since I'd done anything like that.  Aside from two azaleas and a knock-out rose tree, there was no color happening in our yard.  Saturday afternoon, we headed to Lowe's and loaded up.

After breakfast Sunday morning, we headed outside, and got started.  This is where we were about half-way through.

I ran back out to Lowe's for more supplies.

We were out there for hours, and I'd forgotten how much I love being out in the yard, working.  We still have a few more flowers to plant, and then we need to mulch.  I'll share some photos of everything once it's all done.  

I got some sewing done this weekend too.  Saturday afternoon, I started on a little sampler quilt from some of my leftover Scrumptious squares.  I had to stop because I ran out of the cream fabric, and had to order more. I ordered another layer cake of Scrumptious too because I really just love it so much!

Sunday night, I started on a string quilt, using a box of scraps.  

Here's to hoping I get something finished soon!  Until next time...

  1. You sure do create loveliness wherever you go!
    I am a reds/blues/whites/yellows bloom kinda gal, too...
    And your quilt? Scrumptious, it is!

    1. My favorites are the red, white and blue mix. Nice look for summer!

  2. Oh my gosh...that is a lot of flowers. Hoping you got them all in the ground! I have been planting but I am doing mine slowly, to overwhelming for me to do it all. The quilt, beautiful.

    1. Not yet!! I haven't done any planting since Sunday, but I've been keeping the leftovers watered. I'm hoping to get the rest planted, either in the ground or in a container, by the end of the week.
