The day started out bright and early -

I went to the living room and checked
the door to the deck - but no Elizabeth.
When I woke up at 8:00, I put on my

And I could see all the work I needed

house for coffee trying to figure when I would
have time to clean out the garden.

everywhere with her. Here are some of the
blocks for a little quilt I'm making for
"Summer's Bunnies" using Deb Strain's
Honey and Lavender line that will be out
soon. I'm thinking of doing a QAL using the

quilts that you love the most.
