Rain On

The rain is really coming down this afternoon. I really love it when it pours. There's no way I need to worry about the gardening at least. It's out of my hands. No guilt. The ground has been so dry lately it needs a good soak. The weeds will love it. As long as it's sunny again tomorrow then all's well with me.
The chicken quilt is coming on. I only get to squeeze in half an hour a day but it's amazing what gets done. I find that if I keep my sewing area tidy (ha ha) it helps so much and if the next stage is put out and ready to do I can be productive in any available moment.
This is a self-seeded plant in my garden - I think it's a Verbascum. It was about four feet high until the rain began. It's now four feet horizontal.


  1. Lucky you with the rain! Where did you get the pattern from it's wonderful, love the blog have been following for a while this is my first time commenting.

  2. I too feel you are lucky to have the rain. I'm in So. Cal and we desperately need rain!

    Your block is sew cute! I'd love to make one too!

    Thanks for sharing. Your blog is great fun!


  3. I like the way your chicken is flying.

    Shame about you plant," four feet horizontal". I have some in that position too!

  4. I have some of those flowers too...the type not the position. I think you are right about the name.

    We've had a bit of a drizzle, but not enough to really water anything. Disappoints the lazy part of me. It means I'm going to have to water everything soon.

    Your chickens really are fun.

  5. This is a very sweet quilt block...can't wait to see more!
