First of all – did you watch the Field of Dreams game last night? It was fabulous with an ending only Hollywood could write – haha! Wasn’t the corn just beautiful? I say this every summer but last night everyone could see that gorgeous corn! I hope they replay the game because I’ll watch it again.
If I can move the pictures I will.
I’ve had such a super busy week – colonoscopy prep on Monday, procedure on Tuesday, friends from Vermont coming on Wednesday and I had promised a homemade pot roast meal so even though it was 90+ degrees, I was cooking. One of the Heath Bar cakes was for that supper – it was great fun seeing them again with their Sheltie named Sonny.
Yesterday I went to Walmart to get my second shingles shot – got that over with this week, too! Last night Connie and I took Becky out for supper at the Muskie in Ventura – delicious shrimp and walleye. Then home to watch the game.
Today I’m going to get caught up! Here on the blog I am going to post all the waiting reader quilts.
Remember last winter when I worked on this red and white Farmer’s Daughter quilt for my cousin Jill who lives in California? She visited yesterday so I could give it to her. I had made the comment in a past blog that I was going to give away all my quilts at my funeral and Jill wrote to me and said she wanted hers while I was alive! Haha! So I made this quilt in her color choices and I picked the pattern Farmers Daughter because Jill’s dad was a farmer who died suddenly in his 50’s of a massive heart attack. The quilt is a tribute to Herman Harle, Jill’s dad.
Here is the brown and tan quilt I’m just getting ready to bind – for another relative’s birthday – it’s name is Good Fortune and will be available as a free pdf download in our online store. This is my “go to” quilt pattern when I need to make a nice gift.
And don’t forget Hayseed –
I’m going to start cutting this out in blues today. Pattern in our store.
Sorry this got so long but I needed to catch up and now I think I am – if you sent me a quilt photo and have not seen it posted, resend it because something didn’t come through.
I’d like to go to the new movie Aretha tonight but I think I’m too tired. Happy Summer Day to all of you!
