Minot to Lansing package has arrived!!

Thank you thank you Becca!! I love my apron and all of the wonderful tuck-ins!!
Everyone else will be so jealous that they didn't get you as a partner! I sure lucked out as one would say. Here is a picture of my apron!!
                                                          Becca sent me several fun tuck-ins...Patterns to make scarfs and sundresses for a little grandchild named Robin that I know"LOL", a beautiful pill box that will come in handy, a small tin of hard candies, a note pad with a card stock cover with a magnet closure, ceramic measuring spoons and a purse hanger for a tabletop!! Pattern and fabric for a small quilt top. She is trying to keep me busy for a while... I plan to make the quilt, and ship it to her to quilt for me on her long arm quilting machine!! Good idea, right?

Thank you so much Becca!!

I lost all the history on my blog awhile back and never replaced these swap participation stamps!! So here goes...

I'm not sure how to put them in order, but that doesn't really matter does it?

Loved the Alice in Wonderland Swap!!
Here is the swap that got me lots of ooo"s and aaa's...The original went to Connie in Wisconsin. Jen W commented that she wished she had this runner, because it matched an apron she had!! So you know I had to send one to her too!!
I want her table!!!, forget the runner!! LOL!!

Here is a picture of one of my gardens in the back! It is an on going project! I will never finish it!!
Here is the otherside of my back yard!!
These Star Gazing Lillies are not what I expected!! They should be lots taller! Rather a disappointment.

I have finished my apron for Becca!! Yeah Rah!! Actually, I finished it a couple of days ago!! I took pictures of the package this morning, and also took pictures of my gardens out back!! I have been busy weeding...just like all of my fellow gardeners!!
Here is what I originally wanted to make for Becca, but decided in the end to follow all the rules and make the apron look like the Moore apron!!

So here is the apron...What do you think!! She wanted Red and Pink!!

Now if I can find the pictures I took of my yard, I will show you all of my hard work!!

Oops! This is one of the tuck-ins!!

Here we go! Not sure what this plant is called, but I do know it is a Perrenial that grows well in the Calumet Region!!

So am I suppose to cover the hoses with mulch?? Help!!

Hoping these Hostas will survive the deck cleaning that is happening this next week!!
