Summer is Ending

I know that the official end of summer isn’t until September 21st, but with only one week left until school starts for us it feels like it’s ending now.

We went to the Peach Festival down in Wyoming, Delaware, and the peach ice cream was divine. I loved it so much that I went back to Fifer’s Farm later that week just to get some more. $5 a pint was painful, but with the taste of it still fresh in my memory I knew I would just hide it and save it until after bedtime. I know, I’m horrible.

The second quilt I was contributing to for our church project was also completed. I used the same loopy quilting on it and machine bound it. I like how it came out, I think the on-point setting and white sashing really helped it look a little more modern considering all the floral prints I had to work with.

I would like to add that all the fabric (except the white) was donated for use in these quilts.

Last, but not least, we have a visitor at our house. One who scares the crap out of me each time I walk out my front door.

That’s my front entry, and you see that little tree like shrub? Well, this is what I found in it:

And, mama bird isn’t exactly small. Or quiet. Either way, I hope her little ones hatch before we put the new front porch on. I’m thinking that our project will just have to hold out a little longer until the little family moves out, we’ve only been planning this thing for about a year… it can wait a little.
