past.present.future.

Last night....
 I delivered my donation quilt.
Sooo....I guess it's really not MY quilt....
But I DID help a little!!!
I'm Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the FINISH! ;(

I TRY to add to this pile
ONCE a month.
It doesn't always happen...
but that's my GOAL.

My Local quilt guild,
Quilters by the Sea in Long Beach, CA,
does an outstanding job of
Making,
Collecting,
and
Distributing
QUILTS!!!

Here's the lady that is really the MUSCLE
behind this operation.
Thanks Randy!!!

Today...
I'm packed for an overnighter.
This is the MOST important bag.
I can do without a lot of things.....
But NOT my handwork!

Do you think this quilt will survive a
ONE night camping trip?


Yeah.
Me too.
In fact...if I'm cold....you know what I'll do!
;)

The backing is so happy!!!
Glad I had these chunks of fabric to back it with!

Tomorrow.....
I'll cut some flowers for the table.

Maybe the grapes will be ripe.

Tomorrow...
or the next day....
there'll be another zucchini to
sneak into dinner.
I have lots of fun figuring out
new and unique ways of using this
wonderful vegetable!

And tomorrow....
Maybe this pepper will be joining that zucchini in
something or other!!!
;)

  2. Oh my, thinking the same thing - ratatouille! Miss our garden, but just not possible. The local farmers' market gets our business.

  5. The guild gave out something like 100 quilts on Thursday to three different charities. These ladies are all amazing.... and you are a part of it Beth. Thank you!

  6. 'Almost' once a month is a great achievement as I expect you have a lot of other stuff on-the-go.
    We've grown zucchini (courgettes) for the first time this year and they're doing very well. I don't think we'll be able to keep up so will be making into some kind of sauce to freeze rather than waste them!
