I placed the blocks on my design wall to evenly distribute the colors, now I will sew the rows together and add the inner border. I need to piece a second border and the top will be complete, I shouldn't have a problem completing this quilt by October.
On Sunday I went outside and got some yard work done. During the week I dug out a tree, root and all with the backhoe on the tractor, here it is waiting to be limbed and cut into smaller pieces.
I left the really big piece for one of our boys to cut with the bigger saw. After limbing the tree I chipped the branches, look how nice and neat my wood area looks now! To the right of this picture we have a large pile that has to be chipped. Hubby wants to show me how to sharpen the blades on the chipper then we might get to that pile today if the heat is not to oppressive.
Here are the next two trees that we are trying to dig out, the roots are tied together and are giving us some trouble, might have to wait for the boys to help. Our boys are very helpful around the house, but we still like to do as much as we can by ourselves.
We have lots of rocks on our property and here are the ones that have been "harvested" while digging around the trees we are taking out. We plan to use them somewhere not sure where yet?? Maybe later today I will take a moment to take some pictures of what we have already done with rocks on our property. Over the years some of our neighbors have come and taken rocks to use at their houses as well, maybe we should have a rock sale, LOL.
