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.

garden goodies

I made lots of zucchini bread. The kids love zucchini bread but Paul refuses to try it, what a baby sometimes. I haven't done anything yet with my squash but hopefully soon before it rots.

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.

The one and only pumpkin we got this year. It was pretty good size so next year we need to plant lots more to try to get a pumpkin for each kid.

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.

Four Foot Flowers

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.

Basil to pesto

Wow it was so easy. I grew basil this summer in my garden in hopes that it would grow and I could make my own pesto. Lucky for me it grew and I found on line a recipe for pesto. Off of the top of my head, it has basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil. Mix up, add some chicken and put over noodles. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

A Wedding Token

All newlyweds should have a brand new quilt to sleep under.

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.

For my new baby niece. I had some troubles with the placing the fabric for some reason. I should have put the green in the yellow spot and yellow in the green, but I think it turned out cute. I love the back fabric.

My helper could only take 2 photos before he gave up.

repair the blanks

Deano's blanket was in desperate in of a new binding. So I finally got to it. Now it looks like a new quilt.

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...

Vegetable Garden

Paul built me a vegetable garden this year. I love it. It is right outside my window so I will be able to see it grow everyday. Paul brought home the rocks and I (by myself) moved them with a shovel and wheel barrel. I hope the deer leave it alone so I will be able to eat lots of tomatoes ummmm.

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....
