I've been puttering and weeding the garden for most of the week.  The next few days I'm going back to the sewing room as the weather will be hot and I need to rest my body.

In my garden, the rudbeckia--or black eye-susans--are blooming in full force.  They always make me happy.

The flowers are so cheerful that it seems like the whole garden is smiling when these flowers are blooming.

I was surprised to find out that this quilt pattern is referred to as "Black-Eyed Susan":

The pattern was marketed in 1953 by Anne Cabot.  I have seen this pattern in a vintage quilt but always assumed it was a dahlia type pattern.

What is happening in your garden?  Tomorrow is Flower Friday, so please share what's blooming in your corner of the world by emailing me at

Have a safe and happy day!
