Random Things

Seems like summer just slipped away from me this year.  Here are a few random pictures from the last month and a half.

 The view from our motel room on a short vacation that we took mid July.

Time spend with grands. I should write up a post with more about the gardens we were visiting on the day of this picture.

Some canning has been getting done.  This is blueberry butter and salsa.

I have been trying to keep up with monthly projects.  These are the Aurifil QAL blocks above for July and August.  Below are all the blocks up to date.

And here are both colorways of the CAL I am following along with on the Moogly blog.  These are going to be gifts for my mom and mom-in-love.

I have almost finished two more sets and I believe there are three more blocks to do before putting these afghans together.  I am looking forward to finishing them.

I expect your summer has flown by quickly also and I hope it has been a good one!  Blessings from our home in the woods!

Are You Still There?

I have been missing in action here on the blog for so long I will be surprised if any of you are still checking in here.  I would like to say I will post more often but life is somewhat unpredictable for me right now so I won't make that promise.  Over a month ago I shared a birdcage here that I a planted with Sedum.  It hangs in the area the fairy garden is set up in.  I found this little gnome and it sits in the birdcage now. I told the grands that the fairies locked him up.

Then one day I got a note from my good bloggy friend Cindy Bee asking for my address. We met in person a couple of summers ago and I so enjoyed Cindy.  She and her husband are building a lovely home with their own two hands, or should I say four hands?  She sent me this sweet cardinal because she thought it would look good in the birdcage.  Well she is right, it is perfect.  I love it! 

 Thanks again Cindy! You can see the garden tour that Cindy went on  and found this pretty bird made by the artist that owns the gardens on this post by Cindy.  I hope you will visit Cindy at The Bee Lady from Hill Top Farm.

Blessings from our home in the woods!
