On Friday I finished the top and forgot to get a photo before I layered it and started the quilting. I decided to fill in some of the top area with sky which is not in the original photo, but then neither is all that area on the right where I extended it to be long. I think it was a good solution as I had no good fabric for distant prairie to fill it in.
I’m anxious to get more quilting done!
Last week we replaced the stonework on this corner of the fish pond where we had removed it to fix a leak. I smashed a finger and have a bruised nail which is making typing difficult! There used to be an overgrowth of cattails where the liner is showing, but we did not want to redo those really big rocks, so yesterday we bought this floating cork plant holder. I hope when the plants grow, the liner will not be noticeable and will also be protected from the sun.
The local Pond and Water Garden tour is this weekend and we went yesterday. There were 9 gardens on the tour and it was actually a bit of a disappointment this year as less than half of them were that good. I forgot to get a picture of the best one, I was so busy admiring it and talking to the owner, but this one was pretty good.
It was a lovely day with the high only in the 80’s. When we got home and I finished my little planting job, I retired to the hammock with my summer Stephen King read.Â It was actually chilly there in the shade with the nice breeze blowing through!
