blot, Summer, August 2010

 Great new ceramic birdhouse in the shape of a little outhouse. A real special year round birdhouse that can tolerate cold weather. Compliments of Jon Carloftis who just gave a wonderful lecture for Historic Flat Rock, Inc. Check him out at What a wonderful, talented landscape gardener. His new book on Kentucky gardens is a must. 


Have you ever seen anything so pretty? This is my peach honey cooking away on the stove. South Carolina peaches, oranges, lemon and of course sugar make this so special. My Mother's favorite summer time recipe. All quilters get to cook once in awhile.

Hobo Ball

My contribution to the charity Hobo Ball at Connemara, the Carl Sandburg home. The smaller version called Seminole Skies from the book, Patchwork Potpourri. "It says: It is necessary now and then for a man to go away by himself; and experience loneliness; to sit on a rock in the forest and ask: Who am I: where have I been and where am I going?"  by Carl Sandburg


The beginning where mountains and sky come together with accent strips connecting the two segments. It is a piece and re-piece method.
