Planning and Hoping.


Is there a difference between Planning and Hoping? The last couple of days I have been planning,thus I have cut out the backing and wadding to get this quilt top that has been ready for about a year. Hoping to get it done,now that is a different thing. David came home yesterday on the early train. See that is where the planning and hoping just went out the window. Maybe I will try to get it done today.
Today I decided it was time to wash the quilts which have been used in the family room over winter. So I have a colourful washing line filled with quilts drying gently in the breeze.

Don't forget to call back on Friday for "Colourful Friday." This week the colour is Blue. You can see the only blue flower we have in the garden at the moment- a Cornflower. The rose in the background is called Mutabilis.
Of to do some planning,or was that hoping.
Happy days.

Good luck finishing the quilt top! I'm stuck completing things too at the moment - hope & planning both required.

I love cornflowers so I'll be sure to pop by tomorrow for a look. Take care.
