It's July and Summer is Here!

Happy Fourth of July !

I haven't posted since February, and it's not like I haven't been doing anything, but a friend stopped by yesterday and wondered why I haven't Blogged. Well I've been busy with finishing my Quilting projects, and starting some new ones. This one to the side, was my way of adding a little Fourth of July touch, it was fast and fun, I really like it. Thanks to Dawn for getting me on to blog about it. I think the one thing that did keep me away was a project I couldn't show until my Grand Daughter saw her new Quilt for her self. I finished it around March or April, but her and her Dad were here a week ago and I got to give it to her then. I'm sure she Loved it, and was very surprised when she saw it. It was a year ago when your new Quilt shop opened in Twisp, her and I went there, and she picked out the pinks, then I got the rest of the fabric in Kingston, and Paulsbo while going to Knitting Retreat. So here's our picture!!!!!! I really had fun making this Quilt. Sewing seems to be my choice of creativity, I have started another Quilt from my stash from before we moved here, it feels good to get these done. Now that the very slow start of Spring and Summer, my garden seems to be doing very well, compared to others, why I don't know, but I'm having a bumper crop of Strawberries and Raspberries. I have a good feeling that this garden will do well, and we will eat well too. Hope your summer has finally arrived, be sure and buy your fresh produce locally, it's the best.
