Happy little things...

The scrappy string baby quilt is getting closer to being complete.   
I sewed the white border on to corral the organized chaos.
This afternoon I sewed more multi-colored strips together
 and cut them into 2.5" strips that I'll stitch
for a border around the white border.
Just a little more edgy chaos.
Why do I love this?
I don't know.
But I do.

A bit of egg-citement!
The pullet hens are laying!
The middle eggs are hen's eggs
and the circle of eggs are pullet eggs.
(designed by Hubby!)

My new homemade fall wreath
made of prairie grasses, milkweed, and sumac berries.

And one more little thing...
the last roses of summer.

Happy little things!


  1. I love your quilt! It is looking very fun!
    Eggs. PRETTY!
    The bounty from the flower bed will be missed, right?

  2. I love your quilt! I think it's the reds, yellows and aquas that play so nicely together that makes me smile. The roses...enjoy!

  3. Oh that quilt! It is lovely! And the roses, the eggs, and the darling wreath...simply wonderful!

  4. Beautiful eggs from your young hens! So smooth and a lovely brown...
    I just had my first experience of milkweed last week and have a picture for my upcoming blog, too! But no quilts right now, or roses either, so I am also happy, and blessed by yours. Thank you, Jody!

  5. Ahhh, summer is almost over and it's looking beautiful there. I LOVE your quilt -- I've always wanted to try a string quilt -- my someday quilts list just keeps growing!

  6. Lots and lots of beautiful things. I love your quilt. I also really like your wreath. Don't you just love getting your eggs? I never loose the magic of it. Have a lovely day.

  7. Hi Jody! I love all your happy little things. I have always been a fan of scrappy quilts and yours nails it.

  8. Farm fresh eggs are so good. We really enjoy them when we visit our son. The quilt is looking very nice. Blessings!

  9. The quilt is beautiful and the wreath fabulous!

  10. Beautiful quilt! The wreath is so creative!

  11. What a wonderful quilt! And your eggs remind me that I need to get to the store tomorrow--we're out! Oh, if we only had our own chickens ... sigh.


  12. Those are all pretty things -- love your last roses. I'd had my last ones too, I think. The quilt looks quite fabulous :)
