Glorious June

Pay attention, people.....we have a lot of material to cover today. Lets start out with a picture from Gibby's and my walk this morning.It's peony season here in Michigan. My favorite flower. Yard after yard had jaw dropping blossoms on display. The pale pink, heck all of the pink, are my favorite. After our walk I went to the Ann Arbor's Farmers Market. It's also strawberry season.Some of these went home with us. We are going to have strawberry shortcake tonight for dinner. What else you ask? Nothing else. Just strawberry shortcake. We'll have protein and vegetables tomorrow. These babies are ripe and ready right now, and these are the real deal. Not like the beautiful strawberries found at the supermarket (that are lovely outside and bitter and white inside) - these are ruby red all the way through. The season is short and I must take advantage.

These were also in abundant supply at the market, but alas, I have no green thumb.What else?? oh the Detroit Tigers are in first place and what else?? Take a look at this.Yes, 100 quilts in 100 days. Read about it here.

Oh, and if you happen to gander over on the left - it seems we have passed the 500 mark on our followers. Thanks everyone! In honor of that, make a comment here before June 17th, midnight and you could win a fat quarter collection of American Banner Rose.
That's not much time. We'll get this out to you before Polly and I fly out for a trip to the west coast.

Remembering the fragrance of peonies..... It is a good day...sew we go.

Del said...

The quilts are GREAT! That you for the opportunity to win!

My peonies are blooming here in NH now also. Loving the new fabric I'm getting a peak at.

rjk said...

Those flowers and strawberries look so beautiful. We have had too much water to have either here. We are having a slow start to summer. rjk@ndsupernet.com

Anonymous said...

I am envious of the northern flowers. when I lived in Quebec, the peonies would become just the perfect height hedges--too hot in the south for them to really thrive like that. Love your fabric and I do follow you, just not officially. Becky in Georgia

Helen said...

Peonies and fresh strawberries on the same day? Sounds like heaven. The Tigers in first and 500 followers? What a great day!

Now I'm going to go read about the big pile of quilt. I've got a block in there somewhere.

I have been following you for awhile on my google reader and would love to win this luscious bundle of fat quarters. :)

Chris said...

I love peonies too! I had some planted in my yard, but my dog thought they didn't belong here...he dug them up!! Now I have to admire them from afar. I will look for "real" strawberries and enjoy them while they are in season! Our farmer's market here in Monroe isn't until Saturday though.

Darlene said...

Congrats on reaching over 500 followers! Love the peonies and the strawberries look delicious! Hoping the local market will have some on Saturday. 100 Quilts in 100 days is AMAZING! The soldiers that receive them will be grateful and blessed!

Linda K said...

It's so great to see a pic of the stack of star quilts. Our QOV sew group here in the Atlanta area is looking forward to sewing more of these blocks into quilts. I wasn't surprised at all about the response and total of over 12,000 blocks -quilters are THE best!! Yummo on the strawberries! I have two friends who just talked about eating ONLY strawberry shortcake for dinner when they were young in Ohio and Michigan. Sounds like a good plan. Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful fabrics.

Meg said...

Look at all those stars--how wonderful that we did it! Hope the strawberry shortcake was amazing, and congrats on hitting the 500 follower milestone!

The peonies are just starting to bloom in the NW, the strawberries are still the "pretty" ones, but it looks like we'll have tons of raspberries this summer. Yeah, 100 quilts for Flag Day, what a great event to participate in, and a fab give away. Travel safe and have fun. When is that new book coming out?
