Little Green Quilters Update!

Homeschooling has started up again! It keeps me busy, but not TOO busy...
I did put together this doll quilt, made from the leftover scraps of the quilt in my last post.
It looks sort of old fashioned, I think.
 I've put the Purple Round Robin quilt on my design wall. I would really like to finish this one.
 Here is another project; it must be finished by Tuesday morning for class.
Civil War Kepi production line!
 I went to the Puyallup Fair yesterday and bought myself...a new iron!
It is an Oliso. I have read about them on other quilt blogs, so I tried it out in the vendor's booth;
it is sooo far superior to my $10 cheapy iron that does not get very hot.
And check this out...
It is an "oliso smart iron with itouch technology".
(It has not been released into the marketplace yet, or so I was told.)
And it can act as a clothing steamer too!

I am linking this up with Susan at http://www.blackberrycreek.typepad.com

A Gardening Post

My new hibiscus plant, purchased with birthday money!
 A small hydrangea, also from birthday money.
 With the warm sunny weather,
the rest of my flowers are blooming beautifully!
 The fig tree is FULL of fruit this year!
 The figs practically fall off into your hands.
 Here's the meat of the fig...
so juicy and sweet! Yumm!
 The view of the apple tree from my kitchen.
We have two apple trees;
one tree drops apples in early August,
but this one waits until mid September.
 And....we have a mole. 
It is carving a path right through the back yard.
 Never fear, Rosey is here!
She spends hours like this...
 And when she hears or senses a noise, she checks it out.
Husband has plans to buy a trap soon.
Meanwhile, we find Rosey highly entertaining!
