STUMPED, I GUESS

BIRDS 'n' Roses by Margaret Docherty.
This quilt is hand appliqued, and she did some painting/ inking. on some of the birds and flowers. I know that there is a book published with the pattern so you can learn how she did it. It is a very beautiful quilt.

I stopped by my library today. I thought you might like to see how nice it is. It is wonderful to sit here in the summer and watch the sailboats go by.


As you can see, a sailboat wouldn't last long today if it was out on the lake. It is cold today with a high wind warning. Our electricity must have gone out at some point today because all of my clocks were blinking when I got home.That's about it. not much astounding news. Autumn is definitely here. I'm still waiting for summer to arrive. I have a feeling it is going to be a long winter. I usually look forward to fall to get relief from the heat, but we had maybe 2 weeks total of hot weather, doubtfully above 90 for many of them. But on a positive note, back to quilting and knitting. I get much more in the mood during inclement weather.

Very beautiful quilt. And I love the view from your library. We didn't have much of a summer either and now it is cold, for me anyway.

Lovely view from the Library. Ours used to be down in the village near the harbor and then they built a new and improved one(not) It has one thing going for it. I could walk ther if I want to. Based on all I ate while in Maine-I should walk there every day from now on.
Thanks for the Charlaine Harris review. I'd been wondering if it was worth checking out.
