Prom, Plantings, and Quilting


Yesterday, I finished the quilting on my customer’s butterfly quilt.  She said she liked it.  I sure hope so.  She is planning on putting it in an area show.  It isn’t a judged show, but has viewer’s choice awards.

I got some of my planting done yesterday.  Since I can’t have real hens & chicks, I planted some. 🙂

I planted some herbs in my pots this year.  So far, I have dill, parsley and cilantro growing in my herb garden, in the corner of my yard.  Have to have some dill & parsley for the swallowtails.  In my pots, I have some dill, basil, mint, and oregano.  I need some more dirt, and want to put some rosemary & thyme in a couple of pots.

I planted some vinca, and my cherry tomatoes.

My son went to the junior/senior prom last night.  He borrowed his Aunt Lisa’s little red sports car, to “arrive” in.  Family members gather at the high school to watch the kids drive up and get out.  They either have a driver, or drive themselves and have a family member waiting to hop in and drive off, after they get out and make their entrance.  All the kids get their pictures taken in front of their “ride”.  There was everything from antique cars, old clunkers, fancy sports cars, and even an old ambulance.  One kid came in a motorcycle.  Of course, there were some rented limos, etc., also.  It was fun.

When I was in school, it was a big deal not to have a “date” for prom, but here, most of the kids go with friends.  The majority, it seemed, were not with dates.  I think that’s pretty cool…they just go and have a good time.  There were carloads of all girls, or guys, or mixed groups of friends.  Some with dates, some without. 

As far as stash reporting, nothing going on there to report.  No changes.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms reading.  This one is off to do some laundry.

  1. I have never heard of the “arriving” tradition but that sounds like tons of fun!!!! I hope he had a great time! I see lots of awards for that quilt too!! Great gardening too!! Happy Mother’s Day!

  2. Love the quilting you did on the butterfly quilt. Really added a wonderful design element. Your pics of your son reminded me of days gone by. He’s a handsome boy. Cool tradition. Never heard of that before.

  3. Woohoo, he’s a cutie! 🙂 We didn’t have the arriving tradition and just about everyone wanted to have the longest limo there was…times have changed.

    Love the quilt and the planting…hope your Mama’s day was a good one!
