Prep work......again..........

While I had the big roll of batting out I did some pairing of tops, batting and backing.  I am going to quilt this one on my straight stitch Babylock machine.  Here is the full view of it in my monthly recap for November 2014.  You can click on the photo for a closer look.  Here is the book that has the quilt that inspired me.

 All I have to do is piece the backs and then I can proceed to finishing all of these.

Bugs have munched on most of the blooms on the Rose of Sharon but here is one that is pretty much intact.

We ended up with 3.85" of rain in 12 hours starting on Friday night.  We got through the rest of the day yesterday without any rain.  My granddaughter was happy because they had a thank you party for all of us that helped with cleaning and painting their house so they could move back from North Dakota a year ago.  The kids were happy outside but it was too hot and sticky for me so I stayed inside with many others.
