It should comes as no surprise, but it's still raining today. Last Thursday I brought in our tender garden plants (tomatoes, peppers and petunias) and held them on the island in the kitchen until this morning. They have been moved temporarily to the baker's rack on the patio for a drink of rain water. Even if the rain stops today it will be several days before the soil is dry enough for planting.
Meanwhile, I have been working on small Jellyroll Race quilts for the PICU at Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis. These were made from some 3-inch strips in happy summer colors. The nice thing about making quilts for kids is that they love bright colors and the size of the quilts make them very manageable.
These bright little quilts made with summery seaside prints have been nice to have around on the dark rainy days. The quilt on top is ready for quilting. The one on the ironing board just needs the outer border and it will be ready also.
Wherever you are I hope there is plenty of sunshine in your life!!
Until next time I wish you loads of Peace & Plenty!
