Soldiers, Sailors and a Rhodi

The last Dear Jane block I finished from earlier in the week. Not too bad… applique and piecing. It’s called C-11 Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Much better looking than the block I am fighting with right now, C-7 Megan’s Mountain Laurel. What a struggle that block is! I’m at the point where I’m about ready to put it on my rotary board and run over it about 20 times with my rotary cutter. Do you ever feel that way? ARGH! But it’s the last block I need to do for row c, and I want to get it done and move on to row d. Geesh!
The phrase of the day at work today seemed to be “Calm down, go to your happy place.” So ahhhh, now I’m at home and my rhododendron is in bloom. Isn’t the color fantastic?! I love these flowers, but this poor plant won’t seem to grow very much, and its losing its lower leaves. I’ve had it now for about six or seven years. I need a rhodi expert to give me some suggestions. Any takers?
Jake and Sammy are coming tomorrow to spend the night while their mommy and daddy go see Tom Petty. I think I will have more fun than they will!!! Really looking forward to their visit. Jake just turned four last week. Time to bring out the floor-size dinosaur puzzle I have hidden away!
Have a great weekend – I know I will!
