Whew! I'm glad to get back to work!!! This weekend was spent spring cleaning the back porch, spray painting the wicker furniture, and working on getting the yard and flower beds in order! I can hardly move! But it was well worth it! Here are some pictures of the back porch. The garage-sale wicker pieces have been freshly painted a brick red, the old oven cleaned of winter grime and a few plants are on display. The couch pillows are still in the dryer and I need to add a few more homely touches, but it makes it feel like spring has finely arrived here in Iowa! I didn't get much stitching done this weekend, but I'm loving the way the yard and porch are looking (clean, at least)! Do you have any pictures of your favorite summer sitting place to share?
