This is just a photo of dill in my mother's garden. I think I was working on the "days of summer" photos or something like that. I know I really enjoyed doing the challenges that Ashley came up with and would sure like to start something again. It makes me get the camera out and "think and play".
Mesa Falls on one of our drives. It was just so beautiful.
Again...down in mom's garden. I was taking photos...but eating all of the ones that were ripe. I think she was gone, or I probably would have been in trouble!
This is some queen ann's lace on our way through to Mesa Falls. Sometimes I take some great photos and then never do anything with them. Just thought maybe I'd share a few.
Last night my good friend Liz came over and spent the evening crafting with me. Thanks....what a treat. It's been awhile since I've had someone come over and work with me. Loved the time together.
I've been sewing like crazy, trying to finish my quilt top. I'm getting there...finally. I have the center done, the middle border, but it seems to be bigger than it's supposed to be, so I've quit for the evening. I'll hit it again tomorrow night.

Hopefully you can tell there is actually three different recipe books. I made these to give as gifts. A couple went to girls that live in our neighborhood, and I included some muffins tins with one, and pizza pans and a cutter with the other one. The last one, went to my nephew's daughter who got married a couple of weeks ago. I made her an apron to go with hers. She acted pretty tickled with it...I sure hope so. I just love her! These are such fun things to make, and I hope the people that get them like them as much as I love the ones I have.

Here are some of the flannels that I'm using to make rag quilts for Christmas this year. It's the last year that I'll be making them. These are all for the boys...can you tell? Hopefully they'll like them. I'm sure it's not the most exciting thing they'll get, but...I don't want to leave them out. I'm hoping they can take them outside to play with or wrap up in at the games.
