A few pictures

I've been waiting ever since we moved in to see what color my azaleas are and they have finally started blooming! They are all pink! 
 There are 4 bushes but there is an empty spot where it looks like there should be another plant but I didn't want to plant one until I knew what color the others were.

 Now that they are all budded out I can make a trip to the nursery. We also had some kind of grassy looking stuff (don't know what it is called) that we didn't like so hubby dug those up a couple of weeks ago (and killed a snake in the process!) I want to plant some hydrangeas in that spot. 

I haven't got a lot of cross stitching done lately as I have been working on a couple of quilts. I'm almost finished with the binding on this one then I have 18 yo-yos to sew on. The other one is the same pattern but different fabrics - it is finished except for the yo-yos. They are both gifts so I'll show them once they have been delivered to their new homes. I took a short break on the quilts to work on another sewing project - I'll show that soon too.

Once I finish the quilts I'll get back to stitching. It's time to get geared up for the stitching get-away - it's only two weeks away!

My screen just went dim so I better sign off and go put this computer on to charge.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Those azaleas are gorgeous, Tina! I miss having them in my yard.

Happy belated Birthday to your hubby!

Your azaleas are pretty, Tina. We have some at the end of our driveway that we inherited when we bought our property. Here's a tip to get blue hydrangeas -- put used coffee grounds in the soil. The quilt is lovely.
