A Little Of This & That


Hello Sweet Blogging Sisters.
Look at these sweet pins . . .
They were 3rd prize in 
a Give-A-Way from Kyle
at
Timeless Reflections


The top of this case held numbered pins
and the bottom held arrows 
all for planing and putting a quilt together.
Kyle is an excellent quilter,
and absolutely leaves me in the dust, LOL.


This fat quarter was included in the prize.
So sweet! 
I am wanting to do a red & white quilt 
before the winter 
is over and I can just see this fabric
 included in it's blocks.  

Check Kyle's beautiful blog out here:

I've also started a new quilt
that includes these little houses. 


And when I'm not quilting 
or working outside . . .


 I'm canning tomatoes.
21 quarts so far,
but more to do :)

Well, back to work.
I've got garden to pull up,
windows to wash,
and more tomatoes to can.

I hope that you are having 
a productive week . . .
or better yet a week filled
with fun and relaxation.

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Queen Anne Lace

Don't you just love being able
to easily go to Google 
when you have a question about something? 

Look at this . . .

My carrots are going to seed  . . .
and they look just like 
Queen Anne's lace. 

Guess what I learned?
"Belonging to the carrot family,  
Queen Anne's lace is a biennial 
that is also known as wild carrot." 


While I was in the kitchen
with the camera . . .
I had to take a few more shots. 

We are still busy canning.






 I've also had a Birthday 
since my last post.

I was blessed with so many gifts 
and visits from friends & family . . .




Just to show you a couple gifts . . .
this MUG RUG and card are from Nancy at: 
Cozy Thyme Cottage
http://cozythymecottage.blogspot.com/

 This is the first bowl that
Steve has ever turned on his new lath. 
I love it!

I have one more gift to share.
I just found out about a new granddaughter.
She was born 29 years ago and found me 
on the internet.
It's a long story . . .
but a delightful surprise :)

How blessed can one woman be?

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Morning Glories, Finished Quilt & New Mowed Hay



The Morning Glories are growing so well . . .


That they are trying to come into the 
Art Barn :) 



Aren't they beautiful!


Our neighbor cut his hay . . .
and it smelled heavenly.

 
 And I finished a quilt that I
was making for a dear friend.


This month she will turn 65 . . .
and become a grandma for the first time.


I think that calls for a nice present.
This is for her and not for the baby.
It is for her to keep at her home
as a cuddle with Grandma quilt.

So I made it nice and large
to last for many years of cuddling.






The Back.
 

 


Well, that's my post for today.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.

Keep Smiling!
