Bookmarks and Book Cover

I have never made a quilted bookmark before but sis #4 asked for one so I thought I would give it a try.  I changed the pattern a little but used the same technique.  You can find the pattern here

It turned out pretty good, (I think).

I also made another book cover.

 The front of the Cover

The back of the book Cover.

It is different from the other one I made
this one is totally from scraps.

Blueberries and Mushrooms

I didn't get any quilting done this past week.  We were at the cabin with 2 grandchildren and DD.  Some years there are a real variety of mushrooms but I think we were a little early this year with our picture taking.

Just a few of them

The Badminton game was interrupted because
the 'birdie' was in the tree.

We even had a full moon to light our way.

On Friday we went blueberry picking.  The temperature was around 27C so we only stayed a few hours, but we were rewarded with 7 litres of blueberries.  They are already in the freezer made into blueberry crisp.

I forgot to take a picture to I took one off the web.

The zucchini's at the cabin garden were also
ready so tomorrow
it is muffin time.
