Ralph got me a new present last Friday - a battery powered leaf blower. (The old old is a backpack gas powered blower, and I have issues getting it started.) I put it to good use this weekend! Here's the pile of leaves from the front yard:
And the front yard after the leaves were removed - most of the leaves came out of the rock areas, so the yard itself didn't look too bad. I also discovered that the yard was bone-dry - the timer on our sprinklers had an issue. Not a good thing for August in Redding!
I started a new quilt this weekend, too - I found out Friday that a friend that was in our original book club group is pregnant. Unfortunately for me, she's due in a month! Oh well, baby gifts can be late, right?? And I may be a bit slower than usual - I had some help....
I would have put it up on my design board, but it's already full!
This is about half of a quilt I'm working on - I need to get busy and finish....and get some actually quilted, too.
