I don’t know what the weather is like in your little corner of the world but in ours, it’s been extremely hot and dry and as a result, we’ve been spending much of our time indoors.
I’ve managed to get myself caught up on the Comfort & Joy quilt along hosted by Anne at Cottons ‘n Wool.
Although the original sample is pieced and appliquéd entirely in cotton, I’ve chosen to do mine in wool-on-cotton with lots of homespun thrown in for good measure…just to add to the scrapiness. (Mary from Quilt Hollow generously gifted me with a slew of homespuns a while back. Thanks again, my friend.)
I’ve made a couple of changes here and there but that’s part of the fun, right?
And here’s the entire left side of the quilt sewn together. I’m going to add a lot of embellishments but not until after the machine quilting is done.
We went to the farmer’s market bright and early this morning. I didn’t really need too much and came home with some fresh cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and an olive bread.
As soon as we got back home, I made a strawberry-rhubarb pie for tonight’s dessert. For dinner, we’re having fresh local haddock, salad and a baked potato. I can’t wait!
Just let me know if you’re coming so I can set an extra place or two.
And last but certainly not least…
The breeder sent us this photo of our Westie puppy earlier this week. She told us that we’ll be able to pick him up any time after the 1st of August which will make him eight weeks old.
I think we’ve finally decided on a name for our little guy.
Oliver…or Ollie, for short. We think it’ll suit him to a tee!
