Over the next few blogs I will share with you some of my quilts and projects which have now come home to rest. This is a quilt from the nine patch book which I was a part of. I named it after my mother. Along with it I designed the bolster pillow for the bed. Quilts give so much warmth and personality to a home. This quilt especially does because of its association with my mother who is no longer with me. The small wall hanging over the bed is also a design from the book.
One of my readers responded to me that Pinterest is a sponge of a persons time......I certainly agree, however, it certainly is enjoyable. There are two tips I tried off pinterest and thought I might share them with you because they worked! We had a mound of ants which was annoying to us, so we placed orange peels on and around the mound, and in a few days the ants moved on! Tip number two....my climbing rose was covered with aphids...yuck! A tip on pinterest told to put liquid soap in a spray bottle, just a tablespoon or so, then add water, shake it up and spray the foliage......24 hours later the aphids were gone.
