My daughter is having a crafting type retreat in a couple of weeks and all the people coming are getting a tote with their name on it. They are done and waiting to be filled with the goodies!
I think I am all toted out!

Nothing is as cheerful as seeing this Morning Glory grow taller and fuller and bloom after bloom! It seems it always takes a while for it to appear but when it does, it is wonderful to see! I know some people consider it a weed, but if all weeds looked like this, I would welcome them! As it grows, more colors appear, first it was all pink and then the purples started showing up! And I didn't even plant it, it just appeared a couple of years ago and it keeps coming up each year to my delight!
Aren't they a happy looking flower?
The purples are appearing!
OK, this has nothing to do with flowers, but see that brown patch between the swing and the tree? It's a huge beaver running across the yard! With all the trees and branches around here, I'm sure he's building something or planning to stop the creek from flowing! Better check out what he's up to...one of these days!

Rose made this spectacular quilt. I believe that all 32 stars are made with different fabrics and the end result is just divine! Excellent construction and what can I say, it's a PURPLE ribbon quilt in my book!
Stars galore quilted with the Sticky Buns quilt pattern.
The side blocks that surround the entire center of the quilt, all 18 of them done in blue and creams. They surround the 32 star blocks set on point. WOW!
Marge put this quilt together for her neighbor who expecting a little girl. It will be greatly appreciated when those cold winter nights show up too soon from now! Nice!
Marge constructed this little quilt for the new grand baby expected this coming Thursday. I'm sure he will love playing on this soft and cozy quilt! It will be ready and waiting to greet him!
Nice color combinations!

Liz has just finished this cute embroidered baby quilt and it's just in time, as she will be getting two grandchildren this fall. When she finished the first embroidered quilt, she was just wishing for grandchildren and there weren't any on the horizon. So she put it away to wait for the day that it came true. So the moral of this story is, just like in Field of Dreams, "If you build it they will come", so, "If you embroider baby quilts, they will come"! Worked for Liz! Great job!
Quilted in white and the I Love It quilt pattern.

Remember this quilt? Well, it's currently hanging in the Cass County Fair with a blue ribbon on it and a PURPLE ribbon on it for BEST in CLASS! Came in 3rd in line to the Grand Champion quilt (and should have been there in my opinion)! Congratulations, Debbie!
Deanna made this t-shirt quilt for her second year in a row raffle quilt. Actually it might become an auction quilt or a silent auction item. It will benefit the Elmwood-Murdock Booster club! Wonderful quilt, and I'm sure everyone will want to buy a ticket!
The t-shirts were really neat and made a nice quilt!
