i am no good with the wonky. i need to know every step of the way what's next. i'm that way with recipes too. i want to follow the directions! that's what i'm supposed to do! so for me, wonky is more work than it should be. i'll get it finished tomorrow. this will be a beautiful quilt though...
next up, the you are here block from happy zombie. i love monica. she would totally be my BFF if only she lived next door. i love this block! it's a lot of fun to play with the different color combos. it would be gorgeous in solids, don't ya think? and in a quilting cotton wouldn't slip around like the sheets.

so, besides that i haven't gotten much other sewing done. we been outside enjoying the sunshine, and i planted a new flowerbed along the driveway. i put in about 40 plants, and then the next morning i found my silly dog had dug up about five of them. it wouldn't be an issue if i hadn't planted a precise arrangement. that'll teach me! so i got some replacements but then it stormed last night and now i have to wait for the ground to dry out a bit.
i still have some pots to plant, and the kids' window wells to clean out and plant. the toads are back already, so i need to do it soon! i let them each pick out an annual to plant in some pots and they will have morning glory vines cascading down the sides again this year. after that, my next big project will be the upstairs deck and entrance. it needs a good scrubbing and fresh paint. it's where we wait for the bus, so i want to make it a happy space!
