*Simple Pleasures*

I'm missing my lil' boy this week he is off visiting his other grandparents for a few days. We will have a lot of catching up to do next week. While he has been gone I've been busy finishing a few projects. I can't remember who the designer of this applique pattern is but I finally finished it this evening. I think I will actually hang it somewhere else but for now this lil' area will do.

I sewed up two mini quilts and hand quilted them today. I used an old flour sack for the backing. Very simple little quilts.

Danny and I will be busy the rest of the week setting up a booth at the farm show for our trailer and truckbed business. It is held Thursday through Saturday at the OKC Fairgrounds. It is sure to be some long hours but I'm making up a few lil' sewing projects to work on while we are there.

We are in quite a drought at this time with many areas in the fire high alert. The winds do not seem to want to cease. It is not a calm breeze it's the kind that will blow your hat off, groceries will fly out of your shopping cart, and trampolines that were held with tie downs are sent flying.....yes I know quite well.

The garden still needs planting perhaps next week I'll get that done. Fresh tomatoes and peppers sure sound good. I'm hoping that we don't have to start rationing water soon. We just need a good soaking rain to settle the dust.

Guess I better get back to those lil' packets don't want to be empty handed the next few days :)

Happy Trails....Ginger

Did someone say tomatoes?!?!?! :-) I'll be sending some prayers for rain your way Ginger! I can't imagine having such strong winds blowing all that dirt around... must be very uncomfortable...

Love the applique and the quilt! You make me jealous talking about planting tomatoes...but at least the snow is gone up here and the birds are singing up a storm!

Great finished pieces Ginger. Applique is cute, and I love the bunny punchneedle sitting above it. Great little quilt too :). Amazing how busy you an keep yourself with and without that little boy! I really hope those winds produce some over due rain for you!
