Changes ...

Oh my, isn't summer flying!? The garden is changing; the flower bed well past it's peak now. The energy burst of summer is waning, the light is changing subtly, almost imperceptibly. My mind is now imagining the upcoming months of slowing down--that's the reality in view. I won't go so far as to imagine frozen crystals yet, but it's clearly on the verge of the horizon. Change.

But let's not get carried away! It was quite warm and humid today and we've still to experience "Indian Summer." Change.

Next month I will be having a deck built around the front and side of the house. Very exciting. Change.

I'm still working on the watercolor quilt, but at the moment that amounts to collecting new fabrics and cutting them 2"x2". I bought some nice dark hues over the weekend. Change.

I've started a new 'scrappy' quilt. Totally random colors and shapes. I'll make a bunch of 'squares' and then sew them together. I'm sewing them on my vintage White Rotary "77". Change.

This is what I have so far:

It will be a time of change for while now.


  1. Wow, Bernard.m this is going to be a humdinger of a quilt! A true patchwork dream.... ;)
