Brianna loves her quilt. She is a doll. Her mom is a photographer can you tell , you can look at her blog here. Brianna and Gracie are 6 or 7 months apart. I used the same fabrics but a different color way. The lady that quilted them did it the same design. I can't wait until they are 3 years old and best friends. I can just see it know they are playing house with their baby dolls wrapped up in their matchy blankies.

Homemade salsa, everything but the lemon and pepper. This photo makes me laugh. I didn't think to take the picture until the bowl was almost gone.
Corn Corn Corn. This is a picture of my super tall corn after a storm. Thank goodness for my Father-in-law, he came over and roped it back up for me. We got awesome corn out of it, almost as big and nice as the corn you buy from the stands. Next year we need to plant lots more of this.
Next year I need to look at the seed package better. When it reads marigolds, 30 to 36" high it means that is not the height in the middle of the summer, liked you hoped, but at the end of August. I thought for awhile I got the wrong seeds until I looked again. Now that I know they will be that tall inside my 12 inch boxes, I will plant them in a better place. I will get some others that are shorter and faster growing for my boxes.
It's been kind of a joke between us that if I start a quilt before people get engaged, then they usually break up. Well this one wasn't started until after they were married so it is sure to tie the knot between the two of them.
My new brother inlaw Brian is a Reuse, Renew, Recycle kind of guy so I used old levi's. Randi picked out the gorgeous back.

After I wake up in the morning and the first thing I do is pull back the blinds. I look at this Awesome view of my growing garden. I have only gotten a few things out of it yet. 3 cherry tomatoes, 3 zucchinis, lots of beans, lettuce, small potatoes, 1 green bell pepper, 2 hot peppers, green onions, cilantro. My boys go out and pull carrots all the time. even if the carrots are only 1 1/2 inches they love them. I love having a vegetable garden, I can't wait until more stuff is ready...

This sweet thing is for my friend Lori and her little babe. This quilt is so spring... If you look at Gracie's quilt its the same fabric different color way. I didn't have a pattern it. I just have seen this quilt around so i just started sewing squares together. I think when I do this one again I will do the light green pieces a little smaller and maybe a red. I quilt it on my brother and shocker I didn't have any puckering. I only had unpicked two inches because the corner wasn't pined very well. I love how it turned out. I LOVE that I found the back in the same shade to match the front. Wow I was lucky this purply pink it really cute but rare.
You got to love this face....
