Summer at the Marlers

I've been trying to keep up with my flower gardens and my "sharecropping" garden that I'm helping with out in the country. 

I haven't had a lot of time to quilt, but I'm working on a few small projects.  I'll have a bunch of pictures later.  I keep adding to my "feeder/ender" scrap blocks.
And this is a table quilt I made a few years ago.  I think it looks good with flowers from my garden.

And oh yeah!  There's the new baby in the family.  What grandmother would pass up an opportunity to show some more pictures of him.  He's so adorable.

And the rest of his family is pretty cute, too.

One more thing....In the midst of all this, Calista and I have managed to can 71 pints of dill pickles using my mom's recipe.  It's been a pickle factory around here.  We pickled the day before Wesley was born and 6 days after he was born.  Kinda reminds you of pioneer days, doesn't it?  LOL  Just so you know, Calista insisted on helping.  I didn't make her do it.  It's just that's she's a dill pickel fiend.  (As is her sister--guess what she's getting for Christmas! haha)

Is there anything more peaceful than this?

Goodbye for now...back to my crazy, busy life.
