Family travel in South AFrica, Gardening in the jungle....more quilts and the princess!

Where does time seem to go. In between, working, quilting for customers...trying to make something for me, visiting and loving every moment of being with the grands, and every day life, I can't seem to keep up with posts! Had to post a photo sent to me by a dear friend from South this is family togetherness. Scary but a real reality if you don't want to walk. And the little garden has become semi- jungle.... !!!! I have lots of tomatoes, both large and grape sized.... but the peppers seem to be taking forever. Now, when we visited the princess, she loved helping in her Mom's strawberry patch...Some of the water ended up on the plants even. I have
quilt guild this week...and have been busily working on my challenge quilt. We were given this "Ugly" lime green fabric with little alien people on it and instructed to make a small quilt...many of which will be donated to the Sheriff's dept. for our charity project.( so sorry to the designer of it) Well the more I looked at it...I decided I needed to think outside the box...and oila.... an applique quilt was born. It is fun,
and I have made another to donate to the Sheriff's dept...but will probably use this for Halloween is the proper colors after all.They say that you just have to cut the pieces small enough to overcome ugly fabric.... I think you just have to use it in an unusual way. I also have done several customer quilts..... Here are two that I can share. I have a few more, but don't want to spoil the surprise when TONI from PA, gets hers in the mail.
More later! Unfortunately, maybe much later!

That will be a great crop of tomatoes soon. The watering assistant is doing a great job.

I love what you did with the lime fabric. It is definitely the perfect project for that fabric.

That is a scary pic *s* Hope they don't drive too fast.

Sounds like our gardens are performing the same . . . . tomatoes everywhere and struggling peppers.
