What a week

I've been working like a maniac on this quilt - it will be done by Sunday!

These pictures were taken a couple days ago. I have just 1 corner left to quilt, and I'm stopping on my way home to find some binding fabric.

I've been running here and there - soccer practice, 4-H, walking calves. The camper that we borrowed to use at the County Fair next week - needed a new tongue jack. So I had to drive 40 min. away to Akron to pick one up. At least Tyler and I got to stop at my Mom's and see her for a little bit.

And we have finally gotten some rain. Not enough, but a start. So I'm sure my garden is overflowing with peppers and more tomatoes. Never fear though - I'm going to be running the dehydrator full tilt this weekend drying onions, garlic, tomatoes and the various peppers. I'm tired of canning, tired of freezing (although another batch of tomato sauce would be nice!).
See ya,

LOL! Been there, my friend. By the end of tomato season, I'm oven roasting and drying all my tomatoes becasue I jsut cannot make another batch of sauce if my life depended on it! :) Wonderful work on the quilt, btw.

Now, I have a question....where did you get that little chicken quilt?? Did you make it?? Is there a pattern? I LOVE it!

I love the look of the white quilt. I especially like the patterns sewn into the white parts. I had a quilt sewn like that once and I just loved it!
