Hello blog reading friends. Today I had several pictures of daylilies that are blooming in the garden. Instead of making this post extremely picture heavy I decided to create a few collages using Picasa.
Can you tell that daylilies are my favorite perennial flower? They are almost carefree and reward you with these large beautiful flowers.
This is a little grouping of daylilies and blue speedwell veronica that I have planted beside the garden shed. The orange ball is my Dad's old bowling ball. My dad passed away 3 1/2 years ago. I think about him everytime I work in this bed. I sure do miss him.
This week my husband and I built a rotary cutting table for my quilt studio....woohoo!! I was using the kitchen bar to cut fabric since it was the correct height and didn't cause my back to hurt from bending over. The only problem with this was.....I had to put everything away when it was time to cook.
I went to a local building supply and purchased a pre-built unfinished wooden kitchen cabinet.
He added castors that lock, cut plywood for the top, nailed it on and sanded it. Then he added rounded trim to soften the edges that I would be leaning againest while cutting. Next I painted it, we added the hardware to the doors and drawers and last we placed peg boards on each side to hang my rulers.
The table is the perfect height 37 inches. We cut the top to fit the size of my cutting mat 24"x 36".
I am using it to store my batting stash.
Having the rulers hanging on the sides is very handy.
Rotary cutters and scissors in the drawers.
This was a great addition to my quilt studio. Thanks Hubby.
I feel everyone needs a passion and I am very passionate about my garden. I live on 1.5 acres and spend most of my free time in one of the 6 garden areas in my yard. My hobby is quilting. When the weather is too hot, too cold, too wet or I'm just tired of the yard I quilt. I am a 60ish wife/mother/grandmother, married to my soul mate for 40+ years. I have 2 daughters, 2 granddaughters and 5 cats. I am retired and living the good life in Oklahoma.
