my wonderful daughter has been home for almost two weeks now and it's so good to see her safe and sound and happily re-nesting in the U.S.

the sprouts that i planted a few weeks back are coming up like gangbusters!

i have to show off the pumpkin because it's the biggest by far. i planted four of them and they are supposed to grow into a plant that bears GINOURMOUS 200+ lb monster pumpkins. the thing is we generally don't have the season for a great pumpkin crop so i probably won't have that sort of result but i couldn't resist trying. i have to say that at the sprout stage they certainly haven't been disapointing and bring a smile to my face every time i see them so maybe i can count it as some sort of success already

i've been able to get back to the string quilted donation quilt that i started quite some time ago. i'm going to tease you with this macro shot for now but hope to show something much more complete soon . . . 
remember "soon" is reletive . . .

i've also been able to make progress on my Amish/Fragment piece. the applique addition is done (you can just see it up in the left hand corner there) and has been sewn on and the quilting has commenced. once again i've only shown it in part but it's coming along nicely and i'll continue to tease you with it's progress before i show the whole piece.

this last goodie is a postcard that i made for a friend way back in the late fall. i just realized the other day that i hadn't ever posted it. and guess what? believe it or not, no tease here, it's actually finished.

i am still working on the feathers and fins card so stay tuned for that one soon.


  1. Isn't is nice to see things we plant grow? Miraculous!
    I brought my Amish Sunflower all the way to NY so I could do show and tell with the gals from NJ. It's bound but I still feel it needs a little more quilting and an appropriate label.
    I love your postcard!! Too cute!

  2. what lovely show and tell. The post card is wonderful. Love the amish piece too.
    Can't wait to watch your progress on the "great pumpkins!"

  3. Hi Libby Q!
    I'm so glad your daughter is home safe!
    Wow! Those quilt peeks are wonderful. You are a quilting whiz!
    LOVE the postcard! SO CUTE!

  4. Hope to see some giant pumpkins later this year! Love your quilt progress and the postcard is just whimsical and wonderful.

  5. are you have been much more productive than me-both inside and out!

  6. I am waiting to see your Amish style quilt. It looks very intriguing. Good colors from what I can see.


i love knowing what your thoughts are and knowing that you've paid a visit if you have the time to drop a line or two.

i attempt to answer all comments and/or questions. if this is important to you make sure you are not set on no reply which leaves me no way to get back to you.
