summer bits

It's been a good summer.  And if you know me, you know I rarely say that.  I'm not big on summertime.  Especially since I've been living in the mid-atlantic.  I guess I got spoiled growing up on Cape Cod.  Summer is way better on Cape Cod, I'm sure I don't need to elaborate...

But this summer is bringing me first eggs, and more eggs, my first successful tomatoes, and leeks!
Yes, Leeks! from my garden! Along with cukes, and beans and squash and herbs and more tomatoes, and more eggs, and on it goes...

I've finished quilts, and finished more quilts.

(Claire's quilt, I call it a "modern crazy quilt", because it sure is crazy.)

But it definitely is Claire's.

I took a road trip with my family, from Philly to Boulder, where we visited my mom-in-law.  It was a great trip.  I don't have too many pix, but my husband and daughter have been blogging about it

I did finally get to photograph the quilt I made for Barbara last year.
  I loved seeing it in her garden.

And I did a bit of work on the Process Pledge
When I get further, you'll see more! Oh, ok, here's a peek:
It's coming along just as I imagined.  Funny how processing is good for that.

I'm about to go into rehearsals for an intense show, so my crafting may be sporadic, but hopefully, I'll be better at blogging.  Stay tuned...


  1. These are the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen. Gonna save my pennies so's I can git me one. xoxoxox

  2. You may not be on the Cape but you are in garden heaven! Your planting season starts in March yes? Such yummy treats!

    And bless you for posting these new quilt pictures!

    PS I am starting to plan our trip out to New England for next summer. I sure hope we can meet!
