Good afternoon friends. A beautiful day today, no humidity for a change. Lots of quilting going on and gardening in between. My Sunflowers are growing like monsters this year. They are taller than me. So happy with them. A great week spent going on a quilt shop road trip with 2 friends and a delicious lunch at an Amish restaurant consisting of Perch, mashed potato, carrots, coleslaw, home made bread and butter and caramel cream pie for desert. Such a treat after being confined for a year and a half.

I just finished quilting this gorgeous quilt this morning. It is a customer's quilt. She did an amazing job of choosing the colours and piecing it. I love the way the sunshine makes it sparkle and shows off the quilting texture! It was a pleasure to quilt. It reminds me of Autumn. I just wish it was mine.......I just might have to make myself one. It sure was a big quilt. It measures 100 x 106..WOW.

Happy Sunday!! Well I thought I would be able to get outside and do some more gardening today, but the weather had a different idea. We are getting some rain and we are supposed to get rain all of this week. The second cut of hay needs to be cut and the wheat needs to come off, but not until the weather co-operates. I spent all day yesterday outside gardening as the weather was perfect for it, cloudy and in the 70's and no wind. We had a bonfire last night. It was so nice sitting by fire having a nice glass of wine. The fire was just mesmerizing. I need to get some of my hydrangeas cut and hang them to dry. It is so nice this time of year to have fresh cut flowers from the garden. 
Hoping you all have a great day!

Happy Sunday! Things are starting to ripen in the garden and I made this delicious salad from some of the goodness from our garden. Some of it came from our Town's farmers' Market too. It was so good.
Love having fresh salads this time of year.
