A cutting day.......

I need more pieces in my personal collection of batik colorwash squares so while I'm cutting I'm making more kits to sell too.  I have 102 fabrics cut so far and will need 240 total.  I always lay out one kit grouped by color as I'm cutting so I make sure I get a good variety in the kit.
I went out between rainstorms and took this photo of the almost fully opened Dahlia.  There are a few buds but the one shown is the closest to blooming.  We got over a half inch of rain yesterday.
This one has just started opening on another plant.  I brought these 2 plants into the garage and just put the rest of them up by the garage.  A possible frost was predicted at 10 p.m yesterday.
