More of Summer at the Marlers

I just finished this little quilt for one of Tim's bff's new baby (do men have bff's?--oh well--at least he's a good friend of Tim's and his wife just had the baby a couple of days ago)

And I've been working on these little 6 1/2" blocks.  I joined a new blog and committed myself to working on something scrappy for 15 minutes a day.  This is what I've made in seven 15 minute sessions.

Then I made these blocks for my Civil War Reproductions birthday group at the Cotton Patch.  They're
12 1/2 "

MY bff made this beautiful little quilt for our newest grandson, Wesley.  Here she is with Calista and then with her daughter Sarah and Wesley.

And here's Wesley trying out his new quilt.

Speaking of Wesley...  Enough said (for now).

And the canning and pickling haven't stopped either.  I made salsa last weekend.  Calista and I finished our 90th pint of dill pickles yesterday. (Our family REALLY likes dill pickles).  And yes, we've sampled them and they're really good.  Taste JUST like what my mom used to make.  I'm glad because it's her recipe.  Making the pickles makes us feel close to her as we draw near to the first anniversary of her passing.

You have been having a very busy summer with all that sewing, canning and loving that sweet baby.
