Baby Blanket completed and more Covid Projects Done
Friday, August 28, 2020
Previously I wrote a blog about how I was keeping busy during the Covid pandemic to keep me from being too depressed.
After completing the previous projects, I undertook more projects. One of the young adults on the Distinguished Young Women board is expecting her first baby in December so I decided to make a baby blanket for her. Here is a picture of the finished project:
The picture isn't the best, but it is a very pretty yellow and I love the detail in the blanket. I am quite proud of the finished project.
Another project I decided to undertake came about because I got so tired of fighting all of the weeds all summer long. Along one wall there were a lot of gladiola bulbs. They were interfering with the sprinkler system and it was very hard to get the weeds out, so I decided to dig all of the bulbs up and then put landscape fabric down and cover it with red lava rock. I will then put flower pots with flowers on top of the rock. I figure then I can spray the weeds if they get bad. This was a hot and challenging project for me, but I got it finished. Here is a picture of that flower bed.
I liked it so well that I decided to continue on around the next wall. It didn't have bulbs so it was much easier, but it was also much larger. I got it all ready and the landscape fabric put down and then I had Bob go with me to get the rock and he ended up putting the rock down for me. I was so thankful for his help.
I will continue with the rest of the flower beds in the back yard. There are a lot so I will be using bark mulch for the rest of them and then maybe replace it with red lava rock later if I can afford to.
