Wednesday! Yeah!

I just can't believe another week has past. If it wasn't for One Flower Wednesday, life would be distracting enough to make me forget blogging. It's summertime and the garden is weedy. Bet you can't guess where I've been can you? Last week was hot and dry and every morning I schlepped water out to the tomato plants. Yesterday we had a couple of good rainstorms but, would you believe, the garden soil is dry and dusty today? What? Don't tell me it rained everywhere but on the veggie garden. Not possible. More rain is expected tomorrow. Let's hope so.


On to a higher note: the latest edition to my flower garden. You likey? Hmmm. I think I've been in the sun too long. I seem to be getting punchy. Must be in rare form.


As for what else I'm doing: My quilt guild's group project this year is the underground railroad quilt. Each month we are given the pattern for a block to complete. When we have completed 12 different blocks in the fabrics of our choice, we will each assemble them into a quilt for ourselves. I think I like this particular project. This is our first block, the churn dash or monkey wrench.

A Special Request

Another blog that I follow has made a request that I'm passing on to my readers. There is an 8 year old boy who lives in Israel that was operated on for a tumor on his brain. Unfortunately it turned out to be cancerous and his mom is coping with this all by herself. The blogger is making a request for prayers for this boy and his mom and fabric squares to make a comfort quilt for the mom. There has already been one made for the little boy. The request is being made for a 6 to 10 inch square of red or blue cotton. The sender is asked to write her name and location in permanent marker. Looking up the price of mailing to Israel from the US for a one ounce letter is approximately $1. A small price to pay for comforting a mom under stress. You will find information and a mailing address at http://the2spies.blogspot.com/  Look for the post titled Prayers and Squares dated July 14, 2011

Gotta Love Wednesday

And here I am again after a three week hiatus. Yep, it's really been three weeks since I posted last. Last week I was just a little too lazy. One week I had a picture of my latest flower for One Flower Wednesday but It was after 11 Pm and I was definitely not ambitious enough to post. Another week it was out in the veggie garden again. So, without further delay, here is my latest flower.

If you'd like to join me and the other participants of One Flower Wednesday this week pop on over to http://journeyofaquilter.blogspot.com

And (gasp) I have more to post. The quarterly block assigned to the members of my quilt guild is named the 'Depression Block'. Every member that makes the chosen block and adds it to the pool. Then there is a drawing and one member wins all the blocks. Woohoo! This is my entry this quarter.

Stolen Quilts

This was posted on http://stitchduchessscrazysanequiltingworld.blogspot.com/2011/07/stolen-quilts.html
Please pass this along and maybe they will be found.

Stolen Quilts

I was appalled to learn that one of my favorite crazy quilters had a quilt stolen from market! Allie Aller had her beautiful "Crazy In The Garden" quilt stolen along with three other quilts! This is so sad that someone would take a quilt that did not belong to them......C & T Publishing has posted a reward for the quilts......if you see any of these quilts please contact them with the info.....if you are  the person who took them shame on you! Bring them back to those who rightfully own them as they do not belong to you......my heart goes out to all the quilters who lost their quilts......I had planned to put a quilt in the state fair this year, but now have decided it is not worth the possible loss of my quilt......if you see these quilts sound the alarm! I know I will......



Maybe if  these quilts are put out there enough they will be found and returned to the owners.......you can help by posting this on your blog as well as keeping an eye out for them......

Until next time,
Wendy
