Color Riot for Late Summer


The hibiscus is providing a little shade for my happy little Buddha. The coleus is nearing the end of its beautiful cycle. Those were the smallest plants when I put them in. I really love coleus. You really get your moneys worth and very big bang for the buck.
Sorry for the odd angle but I had this one draped over a chair. I had enough Holly Jolly pieces to make another little wall hanging and there are still more to make other things with. It's really amazing how much you can get out of those little charm packs and a couple of fat quarters. Roger is taking Fridays off until the end of September. He has some days off coming to him and needs to take them or they will be lost. A 4-day work week sounds like a great idea for him right now. Long weekends are wonderful. I plan to sew the bindings on the mini quilts and put this last one together for binding. That should keep me busy. Well, that and the usual crap like laundry...

Nice photo, and I love your cheerful little quilts. Wish we had even a glimmer of fall here, but it's hotter than heck.
I'm glad Roger is taking it eaier these days. Enjoy your time. Jen

Sounds like a wonderful plan for both of you, having 4 days "off" together. Just what the doctor ordered, perhaps.

While working in my sister's quilt store, as someone picked up a charm packet I heard the comment "...but what in the world would I do with them?" What COULDN'T she do with them!?! Silly. Glad you're getting lots of enjoyment from your charms, Dee! ;-)

I agree, long weekends are wonderful. Let the usual crap wait until Monday. Hope Roger is feeling his Cheerios by now.

Hope you had a great, long weekend! I wish I could manage to grow coleus . . . we don't seem to get along *s*
