A productive weekend

Well, the grand dream of FINISHING the quilting was clearly not to be, but progress was made. Three sashing rows quilted, and 5 or 6 blocks.

Also some gardening time. I've mostly been watching this squash plant grow:

It's in the "finished" half of our compost bin:

Also in there are some tomato volunteers:

We love all kinds of volunteers. Here's one of the milkweeds, with a bee buzzing away. No butterfly caterpillars yet this year :(

At any rate, the ones I planted ON PURPOSE in the garden are farther along. I picked a Zephyr on Friday - actually two that had grown together - and have a tromboncini growing along. I'll have to start checking regularly now.

Some fun in the sun with the Small Man and the kitties:

And then it rained! YAY!

I had planned to get a load of sewing done this weekend but the garden got in the way here as well.

Love and hugs Gina xxxx

Congrats on the progress! Looks like the garden is coming along nicely. Mine needs some tending this afternoon since the rain yesterday kept me inside.
