Fruit And More Quilts

 Riverton, Utah     High 82 Low 55

The weather cooled off and it has been a lot more pleasant than when it was 100 degrees. The weather guessers are predicting the coolest July 4th ever. We don't miss all the hot days.

The bad thing about the Forth of July holiday is all the fireworks going off which scare poor little Penny.

Our apricots are getting ripe, but won't be ready for about another week. The cherries are ripe already and two days have made a big difference in their taste. We used to have birds that got all of them, but the last 3 years they have pretty much left them alone. The first year I didn't know I needed to spray and they all got wormy. Last year I think I picked them a little early. This year they are just right.

Cindy has been busy making quilts and gardening. She made a fall quilt and had blocks left over, so she made a table runner with the left-overs.

I snuck this oriental quilt in between the fall quilt and table runner.

Cindy does like her pieces.

 We are still trying to keep busy. Penny helps with that, she wants me to take her for about a mile walk every evening. Some days have been too hot, but we make it most of the time.

We are supposed to get visitors next week and the week after. We are looking forward to them visiting.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. It's always a guessing game with the Fruit. If they get too much rain or noy enough, changes their taste completely.
    Beautiful looking Quilts and Runner.
    Have you considered a Thunder Shirt for Penny. They work for Fireworks as well.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. That's gorgeous fabric, but it makes my eyes go wonky!! Love the fan quilting. I can hear the freeze dryer going with all that good fruit!!
