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.
