I have had the circles appliqued on these blocks for over a week but hadn't checked my photo and put them back on the design wall to prepare for sewing it together. I will sew it today and then start appliqueing the circles on the other 9 blocks.
I have tamed the back yard jungle a lot this year. There are still weeds but they are short ones at this point. I have been mowing around the bird feeders and mowed a path to my neighbor's yard. It is a natural bird sanctuary, not a formal garden by any means. I'm just happy we have had so much rain this year and everything is staying green.
