Summer 2014 Flowers

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.


More roses.


And lots of beautiful lillies.

Baby Boy Quilt

A few weeks ago I whipped up a baby boy quilt for a friend at work. I had the top done in plenty of time, but then I found out her baby shower was going to be before the baby was born so I needed to really get moving.
I stuck with my usual pattern. It's quick and easy. I used flannel this time since I'd found this cute fabric.
Put it on the frame and tied it... 
...and bound it.
After the baby is born, I told her I'd put his name on it.
