Summer Activities

Its that time of year when my outdoor activities are restricted to early morning or very late afternoon. The rest of the days are spent indoors, or running outside for a max of 10 minutes at a time.

I've been working on this baby quilt with "Don't call me Betsy" for a couple of weeks and yesterday afternoon I I enjoyed the coolness of the indoors and finished the top. Its the Kaleidoscope pattern. I'll be quilting it this week.... as soon as I get a crib size quilt batting.

"FLOWER CHILD" for baby Aven:





Early Saturday morning I picked peas and put up 4 more bags. That makes 14 bags so far. I also froze 2 more bags of tomatoes.



Here are some of the morning glories. They aren't coping too well with the heat, poor babies. I think I need to quit watering altogether, and what ever lives, then only plant those next year. Just kidding! But, I do want to plant more drought resistant plants to cut down on the work load of watering all summer around here.





Happy Monday!

Baby Aven will love her beautiful quilt... I know I do!

The heat has been awful and you're smart to stay inside... you'll be enjoying the fruits of your labors next winter!

This quilt is so pretty with it's wonderful spring colors. So fresh and cool looking for spring and summer. You have accomplished a lot in a short period of time.

I love the little quilt. Those peas will taste so good this winter. I love to put fresh peas in a salad. They add just the right amount of flavor.

You are so very productive!!!! I love the quilt top. The morning glories are coping, and what more can I say about the peas. I can only hope there might still be some on the vines in three weeks.
Talk about wishful thinking!!!!

Love you.

Enjoyed your post - pretty quilt top! My morning glories are growing, but haven't bloomed yet. I water them every day. LOL
