I feel great! The temperature finally dropped, we can breathe again!. A big part of the garden has shade this early in the morning, so I can get out and do some weeding and pruning, which is really necessary. Weeds love water and heat, they really bloom!
Yesterday evening, like nearly every evening, I swept the path next to the house where the Campsis stands in full bloom.
I love the colour combination of orange and purple. The garden is like a big green patchwork quilt. It gives you a nice example of colours blending with each other. Combinations which you might consider strange seem natural.
A little while ago I made this bag with orange flowers. Maybe it's a nice idea to make another one with some deep purple added to the orange and beige.
But first I have to finish the cushions I'm making for my friend's garden chairs. And then, I have still to finish two quilts. I made a green one. The front and back are ready, but not stuck together yet. I am also making a red one for a customer. I finished the patchwork and now I have to put the border around it.
So, still some projects to go!
In the meantime I made a few mug rugs last week. I saw them on other people's blogs and liked them. As two friends of mine have their birthdays in August, I bought some nice cups and made the rugs. Lovely presents! The pictures are still on my camera, so I'll show them another time.
