Sunday Morning on My Porch...


Put it down... get ready for church... 

It would be easy to never leave this spot on sunny mornings.  Hopefully by this evening this will be on my breakfast table.  This is a Primitive Gatherings pattern -- doubled in size -wool onto cotton backgrounds.

The thermometer hasn't seen 80 degrees in over a week.  But I sleep with the windows open every night and a quilt on my bed.  The other night I awoke at about 1 am to rain and the sound of raindrops on metal gutters just singing away.  I smiled. Rolled over. And went back to sleep.  Better than lullabies.

I made blueberry bread yesterday.  So keyed up about having muffins earlier in the week and yet having another cupful ripe to bake with I forgot to photograph..  Who cares about diets... the blueberries make it 'good for you'.  I can just about justify anything if I try hard enough.

Days getting shorter.... I intend to make the most of this last month of summer.....

We eat blueberries nearly every day right now. I should look into getting plants of my own. Had them at the old house, but left before I got a harvest :'(

Love what you're working on. And I love blueberries. It's a staple in our household, I think my health is always better just saying the word, 'blueberries'. Smiles.

Blessings for the remainder of summer.

It sounds mighty good to me - blueberry muffins and cooler weather. Bring it on!

What a lovely addition to your table that will be. Summer is hurrying by to be sure, but I'm looking forward to first frost.

Good post - especially the line 'who cares about diets.' Hah!

Beautiful piece; I hope it's on your table now.

My husband's aunt used to take a crochet project to church with her. She spoke with the minister about it before doing it and he agreed that it would be just fine for her to do that. I never asked her but I assume it was sort of mindless crochet.

Last week it was cool enough in Iowa to open windows during the day and leave them open for sleeping at night! It was wonderful! Saturday felt like an October afternoon! Lovely wool and cotton project... love the colors!

Blueberries are a favorite at our house, too. Your project is looking good.
