Hazy, (not) lazy days of summer

Nana has been recovering from a week of stitching 9 year olds and even had some time and energy for a bit of quilting! Yeah! I got the borders on the House Warming Quilt. Alayne will put together a backing and I'm making a scrappy binding from left-overs. Love it! Thanks, Bonnie Hunter.

I have been playing with some Hawaiian prints - just because. And I have been working along on Bonnie's "Christmas Lights" - a Christmas mystery from Quiltmaker magazine. My other project has been:

Caroline and I did 3 batches of Strawberry jam. Yesterday was raspberry and blackberry. And then because I didn't have quite enough raspberry, I added some blueberries to one batch. Never tried that before, but hopefully it will be good. My freezer is getting filled up. But scones and jam some winter morning are going to be mighty good! [and of course, a few Christmas gifts]

This week-end is our 8th annual Camping with the grandma's event. Weather promises to be good. Yeah! Life is good.
