My complied BOM for July

I have finished the first Annie and Andy BOM that Kaaren at http://thepaintedquilt.blogspot.com/ is hosting. I decided to use 30's fabrics because a had all of this in my stash. I am happy with the results, If you are interested in this BOM I have a link to it on my side bar. Thank you Karen for this fun project.

Look what I received in the mail yesterday.

I received my fat quater bundle plus a few extras from Cyndi at http://www.bluebirdswing.blogspot.com/

Cyndi hosted a very generous giveaway recently with several winners. I was one of the lucky ones. Sorry Cyndi H and Gerry, better luck next time. :-) I have not yet decided what to use the FG's for but I will think of something with a little time. I love the cherry note pad and pen.

Thank you very much Cyndi. You are the best...

Recieved my Giveaway.

More flowers for you to enjoy...

Most of my sewing has been for gifts that I don't want to share yet. Therefore I will share picuturs of more of my flowers and plants.

I will have another cactus blooming in just a day or two.

These are some of my star gazer lillies that are in full bloom. I have four stalks like this. They smell so nice.

These are castor bean plants. They should still get much taller and produce beans that are poison the we plan to use to get rid of the pesky moles that have done a lot of damage to the yard this summer.

This is a Cleome in bloom. The common name is spider plant or Grandfather's whiskers. These re-seed themselves every year. They are pretty however they do not have a nice fragrance.

This is a Liatris, somethimes referred to as Blazing Star or Gay Feather. As you can see the bees love this plant.
