Another month has flown by since my sabbatical started.

Here is some randomness from June.

1.  The final reveal of the quilt, "Merry-go-round" (formally known as "The Albatross in the Closet") is on my quilting blog, Q-Bits (click here).  All of the statistics in the making of the quilt are listed there.

2.  With my limited computer skills, I have spent hours (and hours) revamping my quilting blog.  I've added tabs under the header that make navigating easier to find info and pictures of the 97 cotton quilts I have made, my wool projects, and my paper quilts, etc.  Click on the quilt pictured at top of the left sidebar of this blog to take you directly there.

3.  Bob has been working a lot in the garden this spring/summer.  Last November we had a very sudden freeze, and shrubs and trees all over our town were killed.  We lost several large bushes, so it has been major work for Bob and Wyatt to get those dug out and replaced.  We lost two red twig dogwoods in the front of the house.  After they were dug out, I couldn't stand the front of the house (and I'm too impatient to wait for new bushes to grow up!).
One thing leads to another -- we decided to add another decorative picket fence on the left to cover the mechanics (the hose, vents, and sprinkling system box).  It replaced the dead red twig bushes. Hopefully, the barberry bushes will grow up, and we plan to add a yellow climbing rose.  It looks much better.  This Fall the picket fence on the right needs to be replaced to match the new one.
4.  It has been pretty quiet around here this month -- just the way I like it in the heat of the summer.  July appears to be more of the same, but August will be a doozy for us old folks.  I've started a new quilt, and hope to complete it by the August quilt show.  Check my other blog for my progress on it - it is a little out of my comfort zone!

See you next month.  Have a safe July!
