I enjoyed sitting out on my back porch one morning earlier this week with my coffee and a good book! It was quiet and cool, so pleasant.
I like finding a new author, whose books I know I'll read more of. The one in the photo above, An Unsuitable Match, is by Joanna Trollope. She writes realistic fiction about women and their families, set in England. A friend loaned me this book, and I liked it a lot!
These sauteed peppers and onions made a pretty photo and were tasty, too!
We combined these with some grilled chicken, cheese, and sour cream in tortillas, to make our own version of fajitas.
We have a volunteer sunflower that has actually bloomed! Usually the squirrels around here don't let the sunflowers get as far as blooming - they chop them down and eat them up before we see any flowers.
I appreciate all my quilty friends who inspire me and give me ideas to try in the sewing room! The Wonky Plus blocks found at The Joyful Quilter's blog, which she found at a blog called Sugaridoo, looked like fun to make, so I tried a few.
So... I think mine look more like X's than pluses, lol! Maybe a bit TOO wonky?
Also, for "wonky" blocks, they're kind of uniform. Hmmm.
Well, I enjoyed playing with them, anyway!
These are made with 5 inch background squares and
6 inch strips in various widths, then trimmed to 4.5 inches.
I like blog hops - visiting the blogs and (once in awhile) participating in them! The Christmas Then and Now blog hop starts next Monday. My day is Wednesday, July 29th. Check out the full list of participants at Just Let Me Quilt.
Thanks for visiting today! Be sure to check all of the I Like Thursday posts linked up at Not Afraid of Color!
