I had worked in the garden yesterday and was reading a book for a while. All of a sudden there was a big clap of thunder.  I had intended to take a shower as I was going out for the evening.

Miss Molly had already gone to her safe place.  If she sits in the corner, she can’t see lightening and maybe the thunder won’t hurt.

 

 

I thought that I could take a quick shower before the storm really hit, so I grabbed clean clothes and went into the bathroom.  As I was washing my hair, I felt something down around my legs.  Miss Molly, who absolutely hates baths, was in the shower with me.  She was sopping wet.  If I hadn’t been in such a hurry to get ahead of the storm, I could have given her a nice bath.  That will teach me to not shut the door.

wwwSummer is wonderful.  This afternoon, I picked the first crop of raspberries.  There are a lot more that will be ready in a day or two.  It pays to prune and weed in the spring.

 

 

aaSeveral years ago, I had a class and made a Hawaiian quilt.  It was supposed to be a wall hanging, but my walls were full.   I added large triangles and appliqued the pattern on the pillow fold down.  It was made before I did machine quilting and is hand quilted.  The quilt is echo quilted every 1/4″ in the center.  The applique pattern in quilted in the triangles and then echo quilted.  One evening, as I was quilting, my Dad remarked that I would never finish that quilt.  There was too much quilting.  I not only finished it, but went on to make many more.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
