No Red Tomatoes

Well, thank goodness its a tad cooler this week, not so much heavy humidity. The garden is doing great, but all the tomatoes are still green. They'll probably all get red together. We have eaten delicious zucchine and cucumbers and hopefully the tomatoes soon. I almost forgot the green peppers look good too.

I Need to Pick Some Brains

I really need some help. My Grandson Brandon is a very dedicated and enthusiatic Boy Scout. He has started working toward getting his Eagle Scout Badge which is the highest ranking badge he can attain. It takes a long time and a lot of hard work but I have no doubt that he will make it. Last year when our Lakeside Ladies went on our retreat to Lancaster PA I found this awesome fabric and need your help!!!! I don't have a pattern to make a Quilt for the Eagle milestone and would surely appreciate any help or suggestions you may have for me. Thank You

Love this Pattern

This is a Birthday gift for my friend Phyllis, We have been friends since we were 15 years old. She and her DH moved here to Delaware last August and as we grew up together, we grow old together. My DH and hers were on the Fire Dept together and are like brothers. Everyone needs a friend like Phyllis.

The picture of her and I was taken last year at my surprise 50th anniversary party.

My Guess was Good

A couple of weeks ago Linda dropped her pins and they were in a pile and I guessed 174 and was the closest to the actual number of 166. She sent me some great fat quarters, and was I happy as I have no fruits or veggies in my stash. She sent garlic in a brown and white coloring,bunches of green grapes, red cherry peppers, green peas and an adorable fat quarter of Ladies hats or should I say chapeaus. It was a real lucky guess for me, Thanks a lot Linda, I Love them all

Block # 11

11 down and 1 to go! I can't believe we are almost finished with the Moose on the Porch Quilt Blocks. The next block will be in 2 weeks and then the instructions about putting it together. I am very pleased with my Jelly Roll, all the strips are awesome and look well together. I saved all the instruction sheets as I will probably do it again.

Block # 10

Its hard to believe we are up to block 10 in our Jelly Roll Sample Quilt Along. Each block is from a different designer and we are supposed to make the blocks all from the same Jelly Roll. I have really enjoyed this project and will be sad when its finished.

OOPS, forgot Uncle Larry

Sorry Larry I lost your picture, but here it is !!!!!!!!

Brandons Birthday

Brandon was 14 on Thurs, July 8th. He was so excited because being 14 allows him to get an ID and drive the Golf Cart without an adult. He knows that if he abuses the privelege or breaks the community rules, he loses it. He had two cakes, one his Mom got and my friend Phyllis made him a chocolate, his favorite. The 1st picture is the store cake, 2nd the home made, next his Mom Patricia and his sister Katie and then Aunt Kathy and his cousin Erik. He enjoyed it all.

Birthday Celebration at Baywood

The Ladies of Lakeside celebrate our Birthdays on one Day. We go to Lunch, eat great food, chat and then we each get a gift. We buy one gift, number them and then pick a number. This year I got an adorable apple basket and inside was 4 fat quarters in red, white and blue. I Love my gift, Thanks to whoever brought it. Next time we go to lunch at Baywood I will remember to take pictures of the Restaurant. Its on the Golf Course. Its decorated very plush and the prices are reasonable. In addition we get a 25% discount on our bill because we are residents of Pots Nets. How cool is that?

Our Meetings

This is the runner that Pat showed us at our last Ladies of the Lake meeting. It was dobe with 1 1/2 in strips and went together in no time' Our Guild has a brown paper bag swap. Put 4 fat quarters in the bag with your name inside. Leave your bag and take one bag. Using that material and some of yours if you want, make something out of it. I made the strip runner and hope the recipient likes it. ps: The top picture is for the brown bag swap
