The weather this week ranged from cool and rainy, to very hot and sunny.
The sunny days were perfect for taking pictures of the day lilies in our garden.
This variety is called Minaret. Although, the blooms are not as large or showy as some of our other lilies, they bloom later than many other varieties. They also produce numerous flowers on tall, thin stalks. They hover over the other plants and sway as if they are floating in the slightest breeze.
I am 5'7", the flower on the tallest stalk reaches my nose. The name of the purple beauty below has been lost over the years. It's even prettier in person.
I used the rainy days to get some piecing done. My One Monthly Goal for August is to complete a Halloween table topper. I found a pattern at The Cloth Parcel. I finished the three blocks that are needed and have lots of three inch squares leftover. I might add another block to make the table runner longer.
I sewed blocks for a baby quilt the last week of July. This week, I put them together and finished the top. It's 41.5 inches square. When it's quilted, it will be donated to the Little Lambs Foundation for Kids
