Happenings...

First I have to say a big thank you to crazymomquilts. She gave away her Oh Cherry Oh! scraps and I won! WOOHOO!!!


And we have been pretty busy as usual. The boys have cross country practice every night and T is finishing up baseball. Last night we went to a 4-H fun show and J received a 2nd and a 3rd. He had some issues earlier in the night, but we worked through them and he was much better after that. The fair is coming up and we are working on getting project books done and posters made for display...only 1 more month till fair, but the pet small animals and still exhibits are judged ahead of time so that is in 2 weeks! Plus phyiscals for sports, eye doctor for J, I have a check-up next week and our 4-H clubs horse show this weekend!


I have been watering my garden and flowers to make sure they have enough. It hasn't rained, but it certainly has been cool. We have been drinking hot chocolate at ball games and at the show last night! Where is summer???
Here are a picture of 3 of my 8 rows of corn and 8 of my 15 pumpkins. These pumpkins should be blue when they grow and mature. I can't wait to see if they really are...the seeds are so we shall see!



I have been working on my PIF's and they should be mostly ready to go out next week. Just a few little things to finish up with those. I did stop and pick up these items today. I want to make Rich an neutral quilt so this jelly roll should work (Its Thimbleberries) and these fat quarters to finally finish the squares for my batik/black quilt!

Lastly a picture of 2 of the kittens inside the hay elevator. I am sure they won't be doing this again once we use it this weekend!

And Kylie, using it for her own personal hayloft ladder!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

No corn here, although our neighbors have some. Hoping to plant pumpkins soon to have them for Halloween.

Can't wait to see your quilting projects with these fabrics!

Did I read right - blue pumpkins? Oooh - I'm jealous of those scraps - gues it wasn't my lucky day - looking forward to see how you use them!

Lucky girl!! I can't wait to see what you do with those scraps. Thanks for the birthday wishes, I'll pass them on to Juice. Wanna see those blue pumpkins too! Last night at our game in Wellington, we all had on hoodies, and blankets. We waited in a long line for the hot chocolate. We won 13-0, just hoping we don't need any of those runs for tonight!

the weather is very strange this year, we had too much rain in May and my tomatoes and other things never grew properly after that. Then we got way too hot - oh well there is next year. Good luck with your pumpkins!

Congratulations on winning the giveaway. Other people's scraps are so much more fun than our own. The neutral quilt sounds fun, what pattern are you using?

Laura said...

those blue watermelon are the sweetest I've ever had, my old neighbor grew them, and brought me one every summer day for years...and I miss his watermelon almost as much as I miss him...they are'nt as big a the usual ones, but they taste soooo good!!
