Grandmother's Choice

Ah I remember the woman should make the coffee scenario well. A couple of big scenes in "9 to 5" as well.

BOW 35 I'm an Anti - for those women against Suffrage, reminds me of the women who thought a woman's place was in the home (and only the home) not so long ago, and now as well.

Gardening season

I started my summer garden a couple of weeks ago, starting with summer squash

Yesterday I added an herb garden

And finished the large raised bed in the front yard (bush beans on the left are new)

And finally, some of the tomatoes. Love these super pots to augment the raised beds.

Sentimental Stitches' Shipshewana Amish Mystery quilt - quilt along

A few years back Gay from Sentimental Stitches did a mystery quilt. I saved all of the patterns, and am now finally working on it along with a group of other quilters. Here is what we have done so far:

The original blocks were all in solids. I have been saving Jennifer Sampou's Victorian Wheeling collection for quite a few years, it has finally found its quilt!
