Two flowers were made this week — one with 1″ hexagons and one with .50″ hexagons. To see more flowers made this week, go to the page at Karen’s blog here where there’s a list of all those making the flowers.
In my ongoing organization, I found these little stars — some of them made by me, some by a friend — made with .50″ diamonds. That’s a penny on one of the little stars to give an idea of their size. I have enough of the tiny diamonds printed and cut out to make about another 15 or 20 stars and am playing with the idea of a setting for them that will use 1″ hexagons. That’s yet another idea that’s going in the ideas book as I’m trying to stay completely focused on the quilt for my aunt.

At the moment, these are the only flowers to be seen on the roof garden. Tuesday the gardener was busy out there adding soil to the flowerbeds, so I’m wondering if he’ll be doing some planting before the weekend.
There has been a lot of grackle and robin activity on the roof garden for Lester to keep his eye on.
Smudge seems to be not as interested but I have a feeling that if and when the woodpecker shows up, he’ll be on that windowsill in no time.
