Inspired by PINK!

I love this time of year, about a month after planting flowers, they are getting filled out and not getting that bedraggled look they get after a long hot summer. Here's a few from my yard...




Yeah! I got my hydrangeas to bloom, I just love them




Impatiens starting to fill in





Astilbe --such a soft looking flower




gerbera daisy--JoAnn's finest!  hahaha  these are in a metal pitcher in a place that is hard to get a hose, but yet I wanted color, so I cheated! It looks great from the road. I might have to re-think my planting next year and totally wipe out all that watering time. 

Inspired by the colors in my yard....I grabbed all my pinks, oranges, yellows and a bit of green here and there to make....


60 degree scrappy diamonds.  And then turned 40 of those into this.....


A baby quilt for some sweet little girl.  Next, I'm going to gather blues/greens for a boy quilt.  And my scrap pile is still as large as it's ever been! How on earth does that happen?

by the way, thanks to those who commented on giving me advice with my new Mac.  I'm loving it..I wish I could have unlimited time to sit and play with it. I've been spending a lot of time on it, but there is just so many hours in a day and too much to do. But I am making headway and learning something new each day and even teaching hubby a thing or two....

Beautiful little quilt! And I totally know what you mean about your scrap pile - mine seems to reproduce itself every time I pull something out!

Love the pinks & greens - no doubt we will see some lovely flowers - in a few months time - after our winter!!
Good Luck reducing the stash!!
