Summer bounty

The rains have really helped our flowers, and the Russian sage finally took off.  We feed the hummingbirds, but I really enjoy when they visit our flowers the best. 

The swallows have successfully incubated another set of eggs, and they're just beginning to hatch.  Lots of viewing entertainment for a second time this summer.

I've been working on the wallhanging that will accompany the oriental lanterns quilt, though yesterday was mostly taking out some quilting.  I had decided to cross-hatch the background of the kimono, but didn't like the look.  I'll probably load it on the longarm and do some kind of fill on it.  Thankfully the quilt is finished since Lindsay's birthday is Tuesday.

I think the wallhanging looks great - how are those shams coming?! LOL! Running and ducking!
