The Chevron Blanket is Finished

 It is finished ! (and all I can think about is what am I going to make next )!  :)
 I just did a row of single crochet around it for a border. I only did the roses on one end , because they are kind of heavy and were a pain to sew on ! If you want the pattern for the roses or the ripple ,you can go back a few posts and I linked both of the patterns.

I also finished this patriotic stitching last night .. I am hoping to do all the months and have one frame that I change them out of. Its not on Aida cloth , so I am getting better :)

 I planted lots of zinnia seeds in different parts of the garden and flower beds so that I could pick them to have bouquets all over the house. So far I just want to leave them out in the yard ! The ones above are little mini zinnias cute !
 These are kind of ruffled petals..
 and these are spotted ..
 These in the back of the potato patch are big flowers , tall ones too.
My tomatoes are growing haphazardly everywhere .. I use tomato cages but the cages would have to be twice as tall as they are to contain them. I need to think of something different for next year, suggestions would be great !. There is a sunflower plant right in the middle of the tomatoes, ( planted by a bird or chipmunk) I am leaving it until it is finished flowering !
Yesterdays garden goodies... love the raspberries ! This is the view out of my kitchen window yesterday .. Love this time of year ! Thanks for stopping by and your nice comments !

Congratulations on a lovely finish--the yellow roses are such a nice touch, too! Oh, those raspberries look delicious and the rest of your garden seems to be thriving as well...

Hi Priscilla! The blanket and roses are just beautiful! You sure do turn them out fast!! I think you are a lot like me, always busy!
The Patriotic stitching is beautiful. As I said in IG, it makes me (almost) want to take up a new hobby!!! I planted zinnias too, but my big ol Lab laid in the bed where I planted them, and I only got a few to pop up. But I also love these happy flowers. Your yards are beautiful!!!!
Have a great day. I am going to have a day of fun with some blogging buddies with our grands and kids!

Beautiful finish! The top photo made it look lavender and I thought you had made yet another and did not think that was possible. ;-)

The garden is lovely, Priscilla.

Ooh what a nice blanket you've made! It looks great on the chair by the cone flowers. Love it! Your raspberries look delightful and so do the sunflowers. I should plant them again- it's been a long time. There are so many nice varieties.

Priscilla, it turned out so darling! Love the flowers and the staging in the garden is just perfect! My Zinnias are just starting to bloom. I sprinkles seeds in front of the rose garden fence. Wishing I had sprinkled more here and there. Will do next year. Your garden looks beautiful. Love the July stitching too. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Your blanket is gorgeous! I love the pop of color the yellow flowers add too.
