Penny Garden...

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.

Bicycling...Gardening....Porch-sitting....Grilling...oh and Ice Cream--anything with Chocolate.

I love your blocks - they are looking fabulous. You're right it's not a race; it's important to work at a fun pace. :-)

Your blocks are wonderful. A friend from our quilt group is working on this BOW as well, but I haven't seen her blocks yet.

Glad you are enjoying the summer; we're busy over here as well.

The dessert looks yummmy. Sadly I am very behind in my BOW - but like you said summer is short and winter is looooong :). There's always hope I can work on them then :)
