Urban Poppies & Dancing Poppies

 "Urban Poppies"
I finished binding this quilt over the last few days.  As you can see I decided to add some "pod" to the composition.  I am pretty happy with the results.

 A closeup view.

Then I began "Dancing Poppies"
I am thinking of leaving it this way and not adding leaves.   So it is on my design wall and I will look at it over the next few days since I am pretty busy now with some other projects.

Still finishing up our fence project.  We need to order some dirt to level out the area in front of the fence.  The landscape guy came out and said we need two truck loads!  So the first one will come on Tuesday and they will dump it in our driveway.  We want to save money so will wheelbarrow it over and do it all ourselves.  I am not sure about that part but Bob thinks we can do it.  When do you get too old for this kind of stuff???

I love the way the poppy colors stand out against the grey background. BEautiful!

I am already to old for that stuff, lol, no heavy lifting for me. I just love that background material, I need to keep my eyes open for prints like that, great idea for art pieces.

with the green background in the second one the leaves might not even show up much but I would want a couple partial leaves in there is it was mine.

I dealt with my last truckload of dirt and the wheelbarrow when I was 63. I couldn't do it now.

Both of these are wonderful. Love the colors in the new poppy piece. I do like it without the leaves.
