Another top finished


It's a lovely day here and the knockout roses are at it again.  Love those shrubs.  The Japanese beetles eat them, the drought comes, they do not get black spot, and yet they recover and make more pretty roses.

This past weekend some quilty friends and I did our own little retreat, on which I did not take my camera - really? -- I packed everything but the kitchen sink and the camera!

Anyway, this top is for my former boss who will retire next month and begin travelling the country in a 5th wheel.  So, it's a little quilt.

The backing fabric just arrived today.  I will explain the need to order this particular line of fabric in my Sunday post.  Gotta get back to cleaning house - company's a comin'!
