Tomatoes and spinach.

This quilt now has a finish date. It has been slowly but surely being quilted on my lap without a hoop.
It is now back in a hoop and the quilting is happening a block a day. Lap quilting without a hoop is not for me, this I came to realise this past week.

This quilt is being lap quilted. With all the rain and humidity we do indoors for the moment. So quilting this quilt at the moment.
It will be given as a birthday present in September. So with the weird summer weather, instead of enjoying summer outdoors, we are doing that indoors!
We have had so much rain, it seems to follow us wherever we go. So we want to send some rain to area's most which needs soft gentle rains to put out wild fires and to stop droughts and give new life to where it is needed on our beautiful planet.
Celebrating my littlest lemon tree, it was grown from a grocery store bought lemon. It is almost a year old!
Tomatoes seek up on me, one day we had flowers and then nothing. Yesterday I noticed these young fruit on the plants.
Zucchini, two different coloured ones on one plant?

July has been an interesting month. This is a free mystery quilt along that was offered by Laundry basket quilts. Waited until the whole pattern was released as I was not sure if there was enough fabric. Bought this a long time ago.
Making a few blocks a day. Over two weeks, then you have a large quilt top.
Binding made with some orange and the piece of green that was no where to be founded when this top was started. Good thing too that it was missing in action, it would have been too much in the quilt. Works far better as part of the binding!

Sweet peas flowering, love the collection colours.

A lone star quilt after mire than 33 years? Thanks to a you-tube video from Jordan Fabrics.
The progress so far.

Working on the dark blue binding. Once it is done, it will go into the box with the top waiting to be quilted.
With the rain and humidity we do indoors for the moment.
