RSC in green.....

I took a break from tilling the very green weeds in the garden (going to try and plant watermelon, pumpkin, zucchini again - nothing from the last try and maybe cucumber) to get a little green sewing in.

Three 16 patch blocks got made.....



which led me to think I need to move some of the green out of the shelves and get them into a quilt.

Some of these (with solids and whatever else I find - maybe the blue and maroon plaid too?) might just get made into Bonnie Hunters Bricks and stepping stones. I made one before which my nephew has..... we will see where this one ends up!

Linking up to the RSC Challenge. Hopefully later today I can pin the last section of the 2015 RSC quilt so I can get it quilted tomorrow and attach it to the first two sections. I'd love to get this one completed by the end of the month!




It was the last week of school - the kids are officially 3rd and 4th grades now. They both got some awards this week at school - Aidan got all A honor roll, writing award and one from PE. Emily got E/S honor roll (A/B), one from PE and she got the high honor of the girl Golden Bear from her teacher. Her first time winning it and she was so proud!


Last night was my last cooking club (silly me signed up for another one starting next Friday!!!!)
We made breakfast for dinner - it was yummy! Recipes can be found on the Pampered Chef Website.
Berry Pancake Puff

Lemon Cherry Crumble Cake - we used raspberry jam last night but I hear we are making this tonight for dessert!

  12. Lot of yummy stuff...edible and not!
    I grow pumpkins and zucchini every year but have never had luck with watermelon so don't even try anymore. Other vining crops we grow are cukes and different winter squashes. We usually try some fun vining crops like luffa for sponges or gourds This year we are growing ladle gourds. Good luck with your garden! so far so good for us.
