Cutting for a friend..........

I started cutting Drunkard's Path pieces for a friend several months ago.  I had to get the piles of fabric out and see how much I had done, how much more I needed to cut.  There is enough for 78 blocks already cut and it looks like he might need 130 blocks for a large couch quilt.  Luckily when I stopped working on it I tied the bundle of fabrics that were already cut and pinned a note on it.

I started deadheading my peonies last evening.  I looked up whether I was supposed to do it and how to do it.  I got about half done before it got too dark.  It should still be cool enough this morning to work out there for awhile and finish it.  When I came in I mixed 2 batches of cookie dough and put it in the refrigerator.

One of my boys "deadheaded" my peonies before they had bloomed back in '78. You can imagine my disappointment!

What is the correct way to deadhead peonies?

Those are some cool fabrics! Last evening was beautiful, but I spent it indoors embroidering.

I would like to plant more of my iris tonight when its cooler but I am concerned about the chiggers out there, so far I have about 50 bites on my knees where I was kneeling in the grass. I do love my gardening, but chiggers are not fun. My peony plant is very small and has not grown much at all due to the fact it's not in the best situation with sun. I guess I need to replant that too !
