Purple, Of Course
Starting up a baby afghan. (Giant granny.)
Yet another wee one about to make an appearance in the family.
Shades of blue, green, gray, cream AND purple, of course.
Using liberal doses of my niece's favorite color!

Ohio Quilt Barn
I stumbled across this wonderful old weathered quilt barn
on my way to my niece's wedding.
I haven't been able to locate this barn on the Quilt Trail
but it was near Hillsboro, Ohio. (Brown or Highland Co?)
This starry block is sometimes called "Milky Way".
If you are from the southwest corner of Ohio and have more info,
please let me know.

Watermelon And Cantaloupe Baby
Isn't this just the cutest?
A friend made this delightful fruit presentation for my daughter's baby shower.
A cantaloupe baby in a watermelon stroller.
All you need is:
other berries/fruit (red grapes and strawberries shown here)
a few toothpicks
and a little bit of time to carve, chop, peel, and get creative.

Wild Roses Growing Along The Fence
I went to visit my grandfather yesterday.
The flowers in my hand could not compete with what nature had already provided;
Wild roses growing along the fence, just steps from where he rests.

Damp earth and sweetly scented garden flowers
infuse every breeze that frolics through my open window.
Its lilac time of year!
