Garden goodies, More quilts and Birmingham quilt show....










The garden has been producing some yummy things finally. I picked fresh blueberries, this morning for lunch and some fresh grape tomatoes, with a few tomatoes for slicing. I love fresh tomatoes. The peppers are finally growing..in that I can see them... a couple of inches. The only peppers going great are the cayenne. I have no idea why I planted them...except they sounded good that day at the garden center. We are preparing for family to come for a get together. So have loads to do..extra baking. But have finished up a few more quilts for customers. Two sisters sent me similar colored lone star quilts. I wanted to do them slightly different...but still keep them similar. They actually turned out so well...that I really want a red, white and blue one of my own. I love these quilts..but don't think I have the patience to do one of my own. For myself. I have finally finished a simple little bargello style flag for Independence day. Now I had never done my own pattern...and these were scraps...so they didnt turn out exactly as I planned, in fact...I forgot about cutting the pieces apart to sew back together...so it is narrower than a waving flag should be...but Its finished. Yeah. I started this quite a while back...so that is another UFO done. I also had the pleasure to go to the Birmingham quilt show in Alabama last weekend with some other quilters. Let me tell you it is a very small world... while standing in the Altzeimer's exhibition looking at the quilts another lady and I began chatting...and somehow having a longarm machine came up.... come to find out we have emailed and chatted online. What are the chances.... I had no idea ...it was definitely fun seeing a face to put to a name. It also was a lovely show. Lots of beautiful quilts. I really enjoyed seeing each of them. I loved this chicken applique, pieced wall hanging. It was lovely and so beautifully quilted. And today is my darling Elisie-Pie's birthday... she is growing up so quickly. This photo was taken by her mom at the "Broadway" evening at her school. She of course was one of the performers. She is so talented... making quilts... I am going to recieve one very soon of her very own creations! I can hardly wait.

DS2 planted a pepper and chilli, even though he doesn't eat peppers, well, at least not voluntarily.

The blueberries look good! You have to make some kind of pie or cobbler. Our peppers are just starting to grow, too.

The harvest plate looks so yummy!

The Lone Star quilts are beautiful. It is such a beautiful pattern anyway.

I have seen one of the Altzeimer exhibits and it is inspiring. Is it one of the Ami Sims projects? And....that chicken quilt is great. I saw it in one of my catalogs and thought it would be such a fun challenge.

Happy birthday to a beautiful and talented girl.

Oh, you'll find something to do with those peppers *s* Last year I went a little crazy with the jalapenos - this year I cut back the number of plants. I think we'll all be happier about that!

Those garden goodies look great, I can almost smell the tomatoes.

Love the quilts too, thanks for showing them. The quilt on your sidebar looks great, and I'd love to see it close up.

The patchwork covered vehicle was soo funny - it really made me laugh.
