Perfect Water Droplets

img_4971Probably one of the last nice hot summer evenings outside in my backyard with +28.

Cut the grass put water on some plants. Even racked up the dead grass.

So now enjoying a peaceful evening with a glass of wine and looking for some great pictures.

I have one for sure I absolutely love water droplets on plants. But what about mushrooms growing on a log? Or even a plant we call clover that we don’t need I. The grass or garden. Beautiful too

Have a wonderful evening

Dehydrated Tomates

 

 

IMG_4571

Love the rich red colour of these tomatoes.

It is all around us right now the ripe fruits and vegetables are an indication of the end of summer season.  Apples, peaches, pears, corn, cabbages and yes tomatoes.

I am luck to have this Holland Marsh  wetland close by well about 20 minutes driving distance from my home.  As per their website “Produce selections range from more traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, to more diverse options like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish, and water spinach”.  So a lot of the vegetables I believe are coming from there to our local store that I have right around my home.

I also have a knitting / sewing friend that grows carrots and onions right in Holland Marsh. Luck for me I have been getting a bag here and their from her and her husband. With the onions  I make this amazing yummy onion soup. Carrots are great for carrot cake or soup too.

So since yesterday I have been dehydrating 3 baskets full of tomatoes so my hubby can take them on his up-coming hike to  Munising Falls Michigan (Pictured Rocks) with his hiking friends.

Have a great September to all of you.

I may have to do the same with apples soon

Mushrooms After Storm

IMG_9888After we had a nice view days doing things around the house over the Labour Day Weekend…part of hurricane Harvey must have made its way up to us …with rain and Thunder. So the grounds are all wet this Tuesday Morning.  A perfect day to doing some more cleaning I thought and getting ready for the colder season again.

So as I am waiting for the water to drain from Hot Tub ….I noticed a cluster of beautiful Mushrooms had grown on our front walk way…so delicate and pretty.

IMG_9894

See how only 20 minutes of lighting makes a difference in the picture ….and one hour later they are all drying up and shriveled up looking…..I guess by noon they are gone again…

So two hours have past since I started this post ….and you should see how black the sky is right now…..lol I am getting soaked by rain and hail….

 

 

Yehh ALL Quilted

2017-01-27-08-54-28As promised here is the picture of my fished

“Log Cabin Quilt”

All done in light, medium and dark Orange Cotton Fabric and light, medium and dark gray Cotton fabric.

See previous post on this Log Cabin Quilt here!

Love, Love, Love these colours!!!

For the back I used this black soft and heavy Sued Minky  fabric we have at the moment at The Quilt Store  Sooo soft and cuddly great for any winter!

I free motion quilted this Queen Size 90″x 91″on the HQ Fusion at the store too … It is amazing what all the longarm machines can do when you program the patterns into them and have IT do the quilting. However, I myself like to work it in free motion so it is truly all done by my hands….well just not “hand sewn” I know ….smiles enjoy  ahh and as for the binding. That is my absolute favourite last thing on the Quilt …Really like sewing binding on…just like my grandmother was sewing the napkins for soooo many, many decades.2016-12-30-17-33-29

And if you really like this queen size quilt and like to buy it from me….just send me a note!

Do You See What I See

img_7816A hike through the forest…

So peaceful this is!img_7723

You should see the rocks and the crevasses, many covered with all kinds of moss.  Just love all the little things I see when taking time to look. Perfect moment.

So friedlich ist das!img_7704

Du solltest die Felsen sehen und die Äste, viele mit allen Arten von Moos bedeckt. Perfect den Foto Aparat  mit zu bringen. All die kleinen Dinge, die ich sehen, mann muss nur die Zeit nehmen zum schauen. Perfekter Moment.
