This Friday In The Garden

it is too darn hot. In fact, it's so hot that the Neighborhood Lion is hanging out in the sprinkler!

If you zoom in, you can see him there under the raspberry bushes. When I first looked out, he was chasing the water droplets, but then he settled in for a quiet shower. I had no idea that a cat would do this!

Inside, I've just about finished this tiny little quilt. I want to add some washers to the corners, but that involves a trip to the hardware store, and that seems like an unnecessary trip right now.

I will also add a little ribbon loop for hanging.  Turns out that springs are heavier than you would think. When I get the washers, the one for the lower corner by the dog's behind will need to be larger than the others, to balance the weight of all the springs on the other side of the quilt. This was so much fun to make, I think I might do more.

Have a great weekend, everybun. If you are having the heat like we are, try to stay cool, drink lots of fluids, and don't forget to check on your neighbors.

That neighborhood lion is CRAZY!! I'm nervous what will happen when lion meets panther :-/

Love your little quilt! so cute!

It is 100 degrees outside but 50 in the office. (and the AC at home is left on 24/7 for the rascal monkeys). We're good!

Great quilt! Will you be doing little quilts for the entire alphabet? One of those misting systems for the patio or an outbuilding would make a nice addition for the lion and other outdoor creatures.

That lion is one smart kitteh--he knows how to keep cool when it's hot!

Love that sweet little quilt, especially the springs! I hope you do decide to do more.
