I worked on a lot of different things today. The morning was spent quilting Melissa and adding the binding. As soon as that is sewn down, I’ll show a picture.
This afternoon, I went to my hand work box and added the top and bottom of row three of Dear Jane. I still have three blocks to applique, quilt and bind for the side pieces of that row. Then on to the fourth row.
The weather was nice so Miss Molly and I went out on the porch and sat on the swing. I sewed down the binding of the mile a minute table topper.
When it became dark, I came inside and crocheted a row on the plastic bag. I am doing much better with crocheting. Maybe it’s not so hard after all. I have some folding and organizing to do with the loads of plastic bags that I brought home with me yesterday. Then they will be ready to cut when I need them.
I need a small quilt for the raffle at the quilt show. I’ve been looking for a pattern and found a picture that I had saved. I’m not sure what the size of the quilt in the picture is, but I’m making it with 4″ blocks set on point. I cut out some of the pieces and will sew some together tomorrow.
I had some donated summer squash and zucchini. Also some cucumbers. I sautéed the summer squash with garlic and basil for supper tonight. It was delicious. I’ll have some zucchini tomorrow although I should shred some for the freezer. Chocolate zucchini bread would be delicious in the winter. My tomatoes are red, so I can have a salad with the cucumber and the lettuce that is in the refrigerator. Summer is wonderful with the fresh vegetables and fruit.
Have a great day and happy quilting.

Enjoy your emails very much, re the zucchini, I often spiraling mine and use as ‘spaghetti ‘ instead of pasta, just microwave for 5 minutes and healthy for you!
Yes, you’re right. Spiralized zucchini is awesome. I make a homemade sauce with tomatoes, onions and basil from the garden to go on zoodles. I’m glad that you enjoy my blog.
Lucky you with home grown tomatoes! Drought here (Australia) and now enough water to grow my tomatoes, miss them big time
Not a drought here, but I have rain barrels to use when the plants need watering. Marilyn shares your quilts with me. They are awesome.
