Remember THESE blocks?
These blocks that traveled with me for seemingly months – and then got put on the back burner when book quilts and quilts-for-tapings became the immediate priority?
Guess what wants to come out and play!
I have searched and searched – not actively—but just being aware of what was in the stash as I was organizing things, thinking of what might be a possibility to tie these blocks together.
When scrap quilts contain literally hundreds of prints, colors, shades, styles..how do YOU decide what is going to go where and if something will work?
I tend to ignore the scrappy part, and in this case am just focusing on what might look really good against that cool aqua.
I like red with it…and this pink sort of retro print has the red echoed in it as well…I think this just might do!
Now if I can only find some time to lay some things out and TRY it!
I wanted to share with you the sweetest photo to come across our wildlife cam at the cabin – from the other morning:
Mama and TWO spotted babies!!
SO SO SO CUTE!
Some forms or nature I just adore. The deer? So beautiful. Yes, I know they have ticks, and they can carry lyme disease, but I’m not hand feeding them, and I’m not petting them, and you are not going to be able to keep them out of your yard on the mountain. They OWN the mountain, remember? We just rent space on it – but the deer will be there long after I am not.
More wild flowers on my morning walk.
I love my morning walks..even as hot and as humid as it is. These are the moments I keep to myself, they belong to me –these early morning walks with just me and nature ((and sometimes Sadie)) to help me get my thoughts together, and my plan set for the day ahead. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have the ability to get out and breathe, and yes sweat – because the humidity is HIGH in these parts!
My back yard from the deck
Tall trees keep things shaded most of the time, but even in the shade the humidity is brutal this time of the year. But without this humidity – I’d not have this green to look out at. I love GREEN! I think I’ve lived in enough places that were high desert ((Idaho…not many trees or green around Burley!)) Texas –well, there is not a lot of lush green happening around the Dallas area this time of year. South Carolina –Yes, there was green, but it was also so dang much hotter than it is here. Every place has been different. Every place has its own beauty. But North Carolina –you are home!
I’m back to spending today at the computer. 3 pattern chapters are done, there are 9 more to go. I’d like to have 6 done before I head out to Iowa on Monday so you will likely find me here at my desk a LOT between now and then.
Don’t worry – my family is still being fed!
MORE Squash casserole! LOL!!
I used the last of the gifted yellow squash for another squash casserole since Jeff loved it so much that he ate what was left of the last one for breakfast! This time I shredded some left over chicken and added it in, it’s a complete meal this way. Yummy in our tummies, and yes there is more left over for today. You’ll find the recipe in the sides section under the recipes tab at the top of the blog. There are more recipes I want to try in that post too!
Have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone – time to get to it!
