I was tied up this week with a project that I will get to in a minute.... first I want to show you my
Just One Star.
This challenge is sponsored by the Moda staff and designers. They ask everyone to make "Just One Star" so that they can piece, quilt and bind 100 quilts in 100 days using the Flag of Valor pattern by Minick and Simpson. The quilts will be donated to soliders injuried in the line of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's not too late to join in the deadline is May 1 so they can meet their deadline by Flag Day, June 14
"many hands make light work"
Now what else kept me busy this week....
Now, if I was 20 years younger and about 75 pounds lighter and it had not been 90 degrees I think I could have gotten a lot more done but..... A mini, (mini?), roll of sod weights 40-50 lbs, there are 5 layers, with 10 mini rolls on each layers on a pallet. Can you do the math? I laid 3 pallets on Saturday. Yeah!!!! I had 9 pallets to lay! Boo!!! I was beat, beat I'm telling you, my legs hurt, my arms hurt, heck my fingers even hurt. Saturday night, called a friend to enlist her son and a friend of his. Now 2 teenage boys didn't want to be outdone by an old lady so they worked hard and we laid 4 1/2 pallets. Monday we had terrible rain and storms, but the boys came back Tuesday afternoon and we finished up the majority of the work. I finished everything on Wed after work.
Look at my yard now!!!!
Isn't it purty? This is the same part of the yard as the 3rd picture above. (of course at different time of the day) You can see the hummingbird feeder in the lower right hand corner.
I'm waiting until my sister comes for a visit week after next to mulch. Shhhh! she doesn't know yet.
Not much sewing and quilting marked off my Monday list but I have GRASS!!!!
BEAUTIFUL GREEN, GREEN GRASS!
