Remember my prediction about Summer, and how quickly it would go by......
I can't believe we are almost done with the #SSSSQ (Simply Sensational Summer Scrap Quilt)
But.....this Thursday will be the final installment for this sew along/mystery, and for those of you who are participating, you will get to see what a great scrappy quilt this is! I LOVE quilts that allow us to utilize as much of our scraps/stash as we can in one fail swoop......and I definitely feel this one does. Stay tuned for Thursday!
Blog posts have been slim to none during this summer, but, I have taken several photos I would like to share with you now.
Snake Quilt Awarded Update
You all have followed the progress of the making of this
Quilt of Valor along with my friends
Cherie, Dar, and Jan.
It was a joy and delight to help create this
Please follow the link
to view the wonderful post my friend
made to honor this deserving U.S. Military Veteran.
He is such a good boy.......but, alas.....he IS a kitten. He is doing things that Valentino NEVER did!
Climbing up my scrap resources!
Notice that rope wrapped pole in the background?
The previous owners of this house must have had
a kitty or two? Sal LOVES that scratching post!
Such a good Kitty Boy at the Veterenarian
for his check up and vaccinations.
Abigail Rose and Salvador are truly best friends!
I have been so impressed how patient Abigail is
with him......and remember, Abigail is only
6 months old right now!
Tired little cat.
This was the first time Salvador fell asleep on me.
He is such an active feline!
Well, someone was feeling blue!
I will definitely have to start
putting things up as I am working on them now.
This photo op was too cute NOT to take.
Please understand, I am aware many people
have allergies to cats. I in no way want to
harm those that come to my lectures or trunk shows.
LOOK WHO TURNED 13!!!!!!!
My baby girl Sophia Annabella turned 13!!!!!
She is doing pretty dog gone good if you ask me?
She celebrated with everyone and enjoyed
her birthday cookie!
I sure do love this little girl!
And, I LOVE this pic....even though
it is out of focus and she is sticking her tongue out! LOLOLOL
Look who turned.........
79 years young!
My daddy celebrated his birthday with
all of the family! He requested my maternal
grandmother's chocolate sheet cake for his birthday cake.
Momma obliged to make it of course.
Many of you saw this photo of my
amazing parents on social media and
recommended I frame it.
You know I am gonna do that very thing!
I am so proud of these 2 very special people!
Here is this fine feller with his birdhouse gourd plant.
As you can see, it has taken over his back yard off
of the patio! LOL
My dad, Lil' Bubs, and I are having a contest
to see who can grow the most gourds to make
birdhouses from. You guessed it....
my dad is in the lead!!!!!
My Sis and I sure are blessed with the parents we
were given here on earth!
Speaking of growing things...........
I am beyond blessed with the garden this year!
The garden has produced
SO MUCH PRODUCE!!!!
Isn't this a gorgeous site?
As is this.......
I finally figured out how to grow cucumbers!!!!
Look at the center of this photo.....
Can you make out a trellis???
Can you see how the cucumber plants
have started growing in the trees?????
Evidently, this is the way I need to grow
That song from the old "Jungle Book" movie....
"The bees are buzzin' in the trees......and makin'
honey just for me......"
Well, evidently they are buzzin in the cucumber
I have had enough cucumbers now to make pickles
3 times! That is a first for me!
I also made some salsa!
Not to mention a lot of pasta sauce!
And a boat load of Caprese salad!
I hope you enjoyed my little photo update of some of the delights of my summer? And, I hope
you all are enjoying your summer!
See you all Thursday for our last clue in the #SSSSQ!
Thanks for all of your encouragement!
Keep on Quilting!
