I am so excited! Today when we drove up - back at home from church, I looked at our little lemon tree and just could not contain myself any longer.
I've been impatiently watching our little crop of lemons ripen and today
I picked one!
Isn't it pretty! And Millie, you can see I'm taking your advice and starting a string quilt. I know you have probably forgotten that advice, it's been so long ago!
And can you see how very juicy it is? I immediately put on the kettle for a pot of tea. Dessert was a couple of oatmeal raisin cookies with a cup of hot tea with our very own lemon. Delicious!
I did finally finish the little baby quilt for my niece's baby. She's expecting a little boy after the first of the year.
I love the Beatrix Potter prints. Each of the little characters is so dear.
I backed it with some little lambs with numbers, though you could certainly never tell that from this picture.
The yellow angel's trumpets are still glorious at the back door.
It seems that everything that blooms is trying to outdo itself before cold weather sends its pretty blooms away.
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
Hugs and kisses,
