I prepped by four blocks for handwork this week. By leftovers are centered in the picture. Sometimes I stress over the accuracy of the orginial block photos as compared to mine, but then I remember the quilts will never be side by side and it's my quilt anyway.
I'm saving up for the border package for this quilt. I don't know what it will look like. I can't wait to see it.
Every once and a while something comes along that you want to tell someone about....
And lastly -- the first Snap Beans of the season...

While I may not have bunnies in my garden--- I caught birds playing in puddles after a good watering. I have to watch Ransom because he snitches the blueberries. My wool class with Lisa Bongean taught me to save even the smallest of scraps because you never know when you can use them. Everything but the bunny gray was made from left overs.
I went to a Thirty-One Bag party for a friend's daughter. I saw this-- and knew it really wasn't a laptop case but a quilt block bag. Comfortable enough at work now, that when we travel to inspect machine shops-- I bring along hand stitching to not waste time in the vehicle.
So last Saturday's mail comes. Don says--,"I checked it when I cut the grass-- nothing much... We can get it after church."...This is what was in the mail.
Obviously his definition of 'nothing much' and mine are completely different...

Five blocks down on my BOW quilt for this summer. Yep--- I'm about 2 blocks behind...but it's summer and summers are so short and it's not a race.
We had friends over for supper last night. Mary Ann brought cheesecake-- so pretty I took a picture:
Strawberries were fresh picked. It's strawberry season in the U.P.
