Pale Pink & White~Happy Monday All!

Hello Friends~I spent a busy and productive weekend completing this rag quilt, adding to my lavender farm, and cooking fresh food (nothing processed), meals for hubby & I.
As it has been so hot here with humidity in the 80's and 90's, my husband stayed in and took a rest in the afternoons. We had SO much fun watching old movies, the Odd Couple was one. I just love Jack Lemmon and Walter Mattheu (sp?) GREAT! Even though I've seen it a dozen times, I can't help but giggle with the "Coo Coo Pidgeon Sisters!"
After finishing and listing the rag quilt above, which is one of my all time favorites, I began a new linen look quilt with a soft French theme. These sweltering days give me a wonderful excuse to stay in and actually get something done in my shop. I have really enjoyed working outside this year, planning and planting. I purchased the book, "Tasha Tudor's Garden" and I was so inspired by her beautiful landscaping! I wish I could have known her, and would like to plan a trip to see her rustic home and magnificent gardens., quilting, laundry and healthy meal preparation are on my list. Do you write a list for yourself? I find that with a list I get so much more accomplished. Without a list...well let's just say I'm all over the place and everything is half done! Well, off to my list. Bless you all on this beautiful Monday!


  1. What a beautiful quilt. I love all the soft colors. I know I've had the air conditioning on at my house more than ever this year. Lists are important for me too. I hope your Monday is a great one!

  2. Hi Sharon,
    I absolutely adore that quilt. It turned out beautifully and I would love to see the linen one you are starting.
    I have Tasha Tudor's garden book too. Don't you just love it? How I wish I could tour her gardens. I love that stlye of garden. It is something I have been trying to attain myself. I call it a granny garden. Full of hidden treasures.
    I hope you are well, and get relief from the heat and humidity soon. We have had perfect weather here in Idaho this Summer. I don't remember I Summer I have enjoyed more. It started out so cold and I thought we would never get it, but it came and I love it!

  3. The quilt is fabulous Sharon! I love it. Can't wait to see the linen one you are now working on!
    I too have been enjoying the lazy hot days of summer. I finally got the fiber sculpture installed. You will have to stop by and see it!!

  4. Your quilt is beautiful as always...Old movies are great...How about Jack Lemmon & Tony Curtis in Some like it Hot..OOh boy I can see that over & over, again...

  5. love that quilt, Sharon; such pretty colors!! sounds like it was a great weekend to get some things done and spend time with hubby laughing at the old movies :)

    sounds like just the right things to do with the hot summer weather!! I'm not a list maker, but I think I'll have to start making them especially as I get older :)


  6. From one ragger to another, your quilt is beautiful Sharon, just beautiful. I hope you feel better today from your migraine and your back on your feet. Summer is quickly starting to look over her shoulder at us I think. My bones tell me it's going quick. Feel better and beautiful work as usual!!!! Hugs. T
