Back in class with Jenny Matlock for Alphabe-Thursday (summer school isn't bad at all!) This week the letter is "L." And that means Lazy Days for me...The gardens are basically on their own now...watering when no rain arrives, weeds are kept at bay and harvests are Lazy now...only fresh green onions and Lettuces are producing. Everything else is still very much in its early growing stages. This is the quiet time of summer - when an hour or so can be spent on the deck with some stitching or a book and a tall glass of Lemonade - rare moments but something to be treasured.
When day time temperatures grow too warm (anything above 76!) there is always the sewing room to retreat to. This is a photo of all the Barbara Brackman Civil War blocks that have been completed so far.
We are well over half way through this project and before the next go round, these blocks had to be removed from my design wall to make room for the new ones and other projects. And these two are the latest - #'s 26 and 27.
I will have to think about sashing for this project and what will look best with all the chocolate browns and blues to make sure they are happy together.
Are you enjoying Luscious fresh strawberries? This is berry time in Wisconsin and something to be savored as long as the brief season lasts.
I will wrap up this "L" posting for now...have to get ready to join my quilt history study group for Lunch...we are the "Liberty Ladies."
If you get a chance, please visit my 2 previous posts also - where we visited the Leigh-Yawkey Woodson Museum. Wishing each of you a Lazy weekend with time to wander over by Miss Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday and visit all the other "L" postings.
