Scrappy Quilt

A few years back oldest granddaughter saw my scrappy quilt from my grandmother and asked if I would make here one.

Her 18th Birthday is coming up so I put together a quilt for her. It was the first time I have quilted with my sewing machine...and it was a quilt as you go quilt.

It's packaged up... in it's case...

Now I can get back to handquilting the one I started last year...

Better late....than never.....

It's hard to believe that three months have past....
I have been ignoring my computer and my posting....
Here it is fall. We've had our first snowfall and I have neglected to post on our Square box garden.

Over all the garden went well.
Through out the summer months...we enjoyed having fresh veggies...



Some of the root vegetables did got get as big as I would of expected. I'm thinking the garden got too much heat...or not enough nutrients... Will add organic soil and compost next year with a sun screen for part of the day to see if this makes a difference.

At the end of summer this is what was left in our garden...

 And the potatoes...here is what was left of them...we starting using them mid July.
Well that is it for our square box gardening project!
One thing for sure...it is simple to keep up...simple to harvest!!
And it was just the right amount for the two of us!!
