Flowers and Quilts

Yesterday the girls and I went to Wal-Mart and purchased a bunch of flowers for $1 and $.50 and planted them. It was sprinkling most of the time Lillie and I were out there, but it felt pretty good. I am not much of a gardener, but have enjoyed looking at a little bit of color in my yard.
I have also finished the quilt I have been working on for the past several months. I had purchased the blocks on ebay earlier in the year, and had pieced them together, but had to stop mid-way thru for a couple of other projects. I finished the quilting on Monday and finished the binding on Tuesday. It is a bit smaller than I had planned, but I didn't win all the blocks from ebay that I wanted. It is a throw sized quilt. The whole time I was quilting on it, Lillie would ask if this is one we were giving away or keeping? We decided to keep this one for her since she liked it so much.

Tomorrow we head to the zoo for some family time with my sister and brothers and their families. Have a good day and a happy fourth of July.
