Happy Birthday, Uncle Gene. I looked and looked for a picture to better reflect Flashback Friday and couldn't find anything from back in the day. I wanted something with the two of us, but I guess this will do!!
Note: I found this post in my drafts having completely forgotten I had started it a few months ago. After Christmas I stocked up on sale fabric for some projects I want to do this year. I found this table runner pattern at From the Blue Chair. I ended up making smaller blocks than she did.
This was the first project I started on but others have gotten completely finished before these and blogged about.
I started with some squares and made them into half-square triangles.
After getting them made, I squared them up and made them into pinwheels.
Then it was time for the layout. I added some white squares too.Sewed them all together and added the borders.
I made enough pinwheels to make two at the same time.
I'm going to teach myself how to quilt with my sewing machine so I can do these smaller projects myself. Note: Since I started this post, I quilted and bound them so I added a couple new pictures.
I just realized that I haven't posted any pictures of my flowers since early spring.
Late blooming daffodils.
After a rough winter, I wasn't sure my roses were going to survive, but they pulled through.
Not a very good picture of my clematis. But once again this year, it looks great!
And then this happened during a thunderstorm while I was out of town. It's not connected to the house, but I've never had a problem with it before. The trellis isn't tall enough but most years I get it to climb back down instead of being top heavy like it is this year. But I got it staked up, and it's good as new.
