A young woman from work raises show rabbits and offered us some manure for the gardens. Even though rabbit manure can be used "green" or fresh, because it doesn't burn the plants, this manure was nicely aged. When it dries out I'll mix it into the soil in these raised beds. Along with our compost, it will make nice rich soil for healthy veggie plants.
It was also a great day for photographing quilts outside. I finally got the binding on this one. And doesn't it look like stained glass from the back?
This one is ready to be quilted. I think I might scallop the outer border. I also have some extra "tulips" left over so I might make some matching pillows.
And lastly, I made this little purse from a pattern in the new BH&G All Small magazine. I changed it up by adding batting to make it sturdier, and doing some embroidery instead of buttons on the front.
I know I said lastly, but really, I have to add my latest favorite pics of Tad. He had fun rocking backwards on our little rocking chair.
