Enjoying life......

These summer mornings and evenings are so delicious!!  Starting out  the morning on the patio where the day is fresh and new and then the close of day enjoying dinner when the sun is starting to descend in the western sky......that means the temperature is just right and oh so pleasant.  I'm endeavoring to savor these moments.
A sneak peek of what I've been stitching on.......Broken Dishes

Bow Tie....the bow ties are made from some new Marcus fabric which was sent to me.

Orange Peel......the background is a new Marcus fabric, and the light fabric is a favorite from my stash.......old and still wonderful.

This is the beginning of the next block.....Posey.

Valerie shared with us the beginnings of her strawberry quilt.....so fresh and sweet looking.  No doubt she will bring it finished next month.

She also shared this fantastic star quilt from the book, The Blue and The Gray, by Country Threads.
"Each person has an ideal, a hope, a dream which represents the soul.  We must give to it the warmth of love, the light of understanding and the essence of encouragement."
