Doorthy B was one of the featured quilters at our CIQ Quilt show in April. I had the privilege of quilting her Flights of Fancy Quilt. She is the queen of appliqué.

A monogram on the watering can.

Different backgrounds for different blocks.

This one was fun to quilt.

Swirly girly plus.

Thanks for having me quilt this beautiful quilt for you Dorothy.

The machine is calling.
Be back soon.

Summer has started here with a bang. Hot, hot, hot! We are sticking close to home to make sure some idiot doesn't burn down our house with fireworks. 

I go to the beach a lot. Sunsets are the best there.

Here's a tour of all my flowers. Love my flower tower. 

I got the hanging fire fuchsia from the FFA kids at Stanwood HS. It's done very well.

One of my "Something old, something new" creations is the blue colander hanging basket.
The wild, tall nasturtium is one that came up on it's own in my sweet pea pot.

Impatients on the back desk. My little sanctuary!

Jack & the tomato plant reaching for the sky.

This is a little patio tomato I put in with Jack. A new variety for me this year & doing well.

Come visit tomorrow at the Floyd in Stanwood. Our group has a nice American Hero Quilt display. We'll be there from 9:30-1.

There will be some patriotic items available with a donation. I made 11 of these reversible market bags.

Had to include this shot of the moon coming up over the south end of Camano last night. 
Don't forget to look.

Follow me on Instagram to see more sunset pictures.

Have a happy & safe 4th.
