Turkey Tracks, etc. progress report

I know you are just desperate to see how I quilted the Turkey Tracks quilt, right?  no?  too bad, that's about all there is to share this week - so here goes!
on the frame, 6 more triangles to do....
chalk marks for spacing only... here is a closeup of the block quilting.

and the only other thing I 've done this week is pull weeds!
but at least I don't have to pull weeds from the boot!
It is filling out nicely with all the rain we've been having.... but I'll probably have to water it every day next week as a heat wave is predicted - notice the little white funnel in the boot top?  that's where the water goes.
and the coral bells are in full bloom to the lower right - the bees are loving them!

and the daylilies are also in full force with this nice weather - I know it looks like this is two pictures of the same flower, but these are different blooms - they are a juicy dark red/plum color that does not photograph well, but I hope you like them anyway!

that's all for today - I'll be teaching crafts at Vacation Bible School next week, so I don't know if I'll have time for garden pictures, what with the heat and all.

let me know you dropped by - leave a comment & say hey!
