I hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July. Many thanks to those service men and women who are serving and have served to preserve and protect the USA. One of our sons and his family is gone camping this weekend, and the other family is at home. They always have a big celebration on July 4th, so we will be going over there. I am going to make a couple strawberry desserts to take. First, we will need to go to the Saturday market tomorrow to get some yummy strawberries.
There's not much happening here. We have had a hot spell that's supposed to last through the weekend. It's getting up into the 90s, which is pretty warm for here.
I was going to post a picture of our blueberry bushes, but the light wasn't right, and the picture was poor, so I'll have to try again.
Instead I'll show you pictures of a couple quilts that my grandmother made, and I now have. The first one is obviously Grandmother's Flower Garden. It is so nicely done, and the quilt is in good shape. Unfortunately, I don't know when it was made, but my mom was born in 1926, and my guess is it might have been in the 1930s, but that's just a guess.
This second picture is of a quilt, which I think would have been an earlier quilt. Many of the fabrics are apparently scraps from clothing that was made. Also, it seems to maybe have a blanket in the middle to serve as "batting."
