bits and pieces

Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

What’s up at your house? Lots of bits of inconsequential stuff happening here. Reading binges of series of novels from kindle unlimited. It’s so easy to ignore jobs that I should be doing if I am in the middle of a good book. Making masks round two with a better pattern for family members. The garden is coming on strong. Harvesting lots of lettuce, herbs, and beginning to get tomatoes. There is nothing like a home grown tomato for summer deliciousness, is there? I’m getting zucchini like crazy from other gardens and always in the market for a good zuke recipe. I’ll share one of my favorites at the end of this post.

Ran across this fun quiz to see what Free Motion Quilting Motif you are. Try it out. I’m Paisley. What a coincidence because the paisley, as she has illustrated it, is my go-to  free motion design. Is she psychic, do you think?  Take quiz here.

I hope you’re considering sharing some of your quilts for our guild’s Fall Showcase. Details are in the guild newsletter, available at our guild website. We have such talented quilters–it will be easy to put together a great slide show if you all will share!

    Zucchini recipe sounds good. Intend to make it. I’ve been doing a lot of reading. Grateful my daughter gave me her old Kindle.
    Was ready to harvest a boatload of Cherry tomatoes until the pest exterminator came and sprayed 2 wasp nests which then drifted over the tomatoes !!
