Morgan's Quilt

The borders are on and I have started the quilting.

 

I am using the circle template as a visual reference so that my flowers are close to the same size.

 This girl loves her green.

Critters in the Garden

There are still a few things blooming in our garden.  I love the colors on the Hot Pokers.

Autumn Joy sedum is a garden staple.  The bees love it.

 And we have a visitor.

I don't mind seeing him out in the middle of the yard, but when I run into him coming around a corner  . . . lets just say I immediately reverse direction.

And a new little dragon friend.  He followed me home from Morganton, NC.  Oak Hill Iron + Wood to be specific.

Square in a Square

I haven't posted the progress on this in a while.

 Three or four more repeats and then it will be big enough to use as a throw.  It is perfect knitting for my Knitting Group.  I can usually talk and manage this pattern at the same time.  It's also easy enough that I can fix my mistakes when I can't manage doing both at the same time.

Me Before You

From the Goodreads website:  "Louisa Clark is an ordinary young woman living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair-bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A love story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?" 
 
Finally, a book worth mentioning on the blog.  I've read some real duds lately but this book was great.  I didn't want to put it down.  I'm looking forward to the next one and I will likely read all her other books.
