Over an early dinner of couscous and shrimp salad with sugar snap peas, basil, and cherry tomatoes, I was telling Sean that I still needed to write tonight’s blog post. I wasn’t sure what to write about.
“You have a lot of borders and fronts sewed,” he said, motioning to the fabric strips draped over the back of one of the dining room chairs.
It took me a few seconds to realize what he meant by “borders and fronts.” I’d spent the weekend cutting and sewing binding strips, as well as piecing together the nine-patch blocks that I’d shared in yesterday’s blog entry.
“Oh,” I told him, “you mean binding and quilt tops.”
He tapped his finger on the top of the quilted placemat underneath his salad bowl. “Like I said, borders and fronts.”

Anyway, I decided not to take photos of the borders and fronts for today’s blog, mostly because I wanted to share a bright outdoor photo rather than an indoor poorly lit one. So I went outside this evening and took pictures of my birthday angel trumpet plant and the pumpkin seedlings that are no longer seedlings but turning into full-on plants with vines. They really loved this weekend’s rain and were very happy to soak it up.
See, don’t the plants and gnomes make for very cheery photos?
