1. I finished a quilt top for one of my guys. He's had his first child and is very excited about it. Here is an "in progress" shot of the top. I used a Moda jelly roll purchased here in a colorway tag that is long lost. It is crib sized and has a simple mitered border in cream. All I have to do is schedule time here to get it all quilted. I am waiting for several tops to be done and then I'll make a day of it.

4. My much neglected garden is beginning to give up her gifts. It seems this summer I could not adequately keep up with the watering between the extreme heat and the near drought-like conditions. On a recent maintenance visit, I lost a tomato (I plan to fry it up green). Also there are some thai hot peppers and habaneros and more rouge mint. More stuff to get mixed into the daily cooking.
