I finished piecing the mini-quilts (6"x9," pattern I bought at Sweet Home can be seen here: Suzanne's Art House) last night and I went ahead and quilted one while the TV was on (binder clips are temporary until I put hanging sleeves on the back).
Here it is hand-quilted and bound with turned-from-the-back yellow binding.
I have a good bit of yellow fabric ;-)
I often use my junipers as a back drop for photos.
Today when I walked out the front door, I found the yard guys had been by.
And they "shaped" my junipers.
Yep, squared them up and whacked them off.
I had always pruned surgically to keep a natural shape.
The damage will take years to grow out.
Hubby said he hadn't asked them to do it.
