Yesterday was busy.
I laid out the background and
started quilting the sky.
My new art quilt will be a road
disappearing into the woods.
Lots of trees and leaves.
This is the last of the melons from the garden.
We will savor this one.
Next week on to the watermelons.
I am glad to be back in the studio again.
The pantry will be full for the winter.
I will be happy as a clam in the studio.
Watching the snow blow past the windows.
I am probably the only person who likes winter.
Enjoy your day.

I love trees.
I can see a quilt in here can you?
Ready to start on the tree art quilt this morning
I have the trees cut out
and the background ready.
I want to make this a fall scene.
I will cut scrapes of leaves
let them drop than free motion over them,
Have a wonderful day. I know I will.

I just love the look of old wood.
The original homestead is west of our garden.
Lots of great weathered old wood.
Bill picked 15 melons out of his garden today.
I went around the neighborhood to share the bounty.
I think we have harvested at least 50 melons so far.
Cantaloupe will finish this week
Than the watermelons will start.
They should last through mid September.
That will leave the potatoes to dig in October.
Summer is going too too fast.
But our pantry will be full of goodness.
I finally went to the studio and started
a new art quilt of a road bordered with oak trees.
Felt good to touch the fabric again.

A quiet stroll around the pond
and some nice photos for future quilts.
Such a peaceful way to spend the morning.
He thought if he stood still I would go away.
A needed rest full day after a Saturday of
canning a bushel of tomato's into
17 quarts of juice and doing another
5 meals of corn, going to an auction
way too much for one day.
