The corner of my front porch (which is more of a step or landing, really) was looking kind of bare and in need of some color. One thing that grows well in that shady spot is impatiens, so I picked up some of those. Then I rooted around in my garage looking for a suitable container. You know how one thing leads to another.
Found this plastic tub that had been used to drain the lawnmower oil. It had a little hole in it (drainage, right?), and it looked about the right size, but I didn't want it to be blue. Which led me to dig out an old can of cream colored spray paint.
Sewing-wise, I'm working on a baby quilt. I finished the top this past week and stared at it on the living room floor for a couple days, debating about what to do for the backing. Since the front is kind of bright and busy, I thought I'd tone it down for the back with just one strip across a Heath gray background. I may actually like the back better than the front! This photo doesn't really do it justice, but you get the idea. I'm using some bits I'd cut for a kaleidoscope quilt that wasn't.
Anyway, I'm hoping to get it at least basted together this week. Lots of other things competing for time and attention, though. Isn't that the way of it?
