I finished sewing the vertical seams and got 5 of the horizontal seams sewn. It will shrink 5.5" more in length when all of the seams are sewn. I changed some of the yellow pieces to a softer golden yellow instead of the bright pieces I had in there in previous photos.
Here is my little bouquet of zinnias along with some more tomatoes ripening on the windowsill.
I love the centers of the zinnias. It is like a ring of little flowers circling that center.
I love the view from my kitchen window. There are more flowers back there this year than ever before. I have kept it cleaned up this year keeping out the weeds that grow tall. There a Creeping Charlie carpet in many areas. I tear it out by the armload but it grows back in. I also have Virginia Creeper and wild strawberries as well as hundreds of violet plants. The hostas are doing great this year too.
