It just makes for more sewing time....that's the good side. Right????
There are lots of little ones starting to loose their teeth around here so Tooth Fairy pillows were needed. I actually made four, but forgot to take pictures of the blue and green one before sending them to their new owners.

I FINALLY finished piecing my Easy Street. I love this quilt and it is huge. I laid it out on the grass, but the wind kept blowing up the edges. It ended up at 94" square. I know it looks like a rectangle in the photo, but it is square.
There are so many fun quilt-alongs happening right now and it is hard to avoid joining in on them. I started working on the String of Pearls and have my steps 1 through 3 completed. This one should go up quickly.
Since a lot of time is spent in the garden these days, I thought I would share some of the flowers with you.
My gardenias are blooming prolifically right now so I love to bring them into the house. They fill the room with the most delightful fragrance.
The hibiscus are also pretty right now. As you can see, they grow well in our climate.

My job this week is canning the apricots. They are at the point of needing to be picked before the birds beat me to them. A day in the house and they will be ready to go.
Have you ever enjoyed a "donut peach"? Ours are also just getting ripe. These are flat little things (thus the name "donut") and they are white in color on the inside. Their flavor is amazing!
Lastly....our baby quail have grown up and are now as big as their parents. We just love listening to them and having them come to the feeders.
Have you been enjoying the Super Moon this weekend? It is really pretty. Makes me want to put on the old record album of Henry Mancini - Concert for Young Lovers. I think I'll go see if I still have it!
Have a great week and I will be back visiting when my computer gets sorted out.
