Tulips two

Not a real good picture of the top but tulips two is done. It measures 65x74.5. I like it but the tulips are a bit squatty for me. I used the technique I wrote about earlier, using Bonnie's boxy star pattern. The tulips come out at 6.5 inches. I think if I did it again I would figure out how to elongate the tulips a bit. I can't say I a really happy with the border either but I just wanted it done so done it is.

I woke this morning with a very sore neck. I must have slept wrong last night. I have not had a very easy time turning my head all day. I hope it is better tomorrow.

Today is hubby's birthday. I took him to lunch a Thai BBQ. It was good. We went shopping for bedding flowers after lunch. To hot to plant today, our temp was 95. I hope to get them planted tomorrow, early before the heat begins.
Well off to shower before my detective program. Enjoy your week-end, what's left of it. Dot

I like it! Don't be so harsh on yourself!!! Hope that neck improves - I hate having a sore neck it's awful :-(

Oooh! I hope your neck gets better soon.

I like your tulips, they are just fine how they are. I know sometimes we are our own worst critics and thats when it's nice to have the rest of blogland looking in.

I think it's very pretty and I love the border. I especially like the different shades of background fabric you used.
