The days are long, but they still fly by

I've been busy for about the last month -- never enough time in a day, since so much of my day is wasted at work, when I'd rather be quilting, gardening, felting, hooking...

Finished up quilting a top that I started a while ago.  I quilted pretty densely, so I used lots and lots of Aurifil! Just have to square it up and put some facings on it (instead of regular binding), then it will be done.

And more felted vessels- 

A few weeks ago, the bee balm started blooming.

And of course, the day lilies.

Yikes, found this snakeskin in my yard, too.  It's only about 3' long, I've seen snakes that are twice that size.

 And I also dyed some more wool pieces, for rug hooking projects.  These look like irises, don't they?
 And maybe some poppies?
