The Last Day of June

Well, first of all, I did finally get this quilt finished. Phyllis got hers finished, too, so that makes a grand total of two we have ready to send to Quilts of Compassion.

Here, you can see the binding and the backing. I like it. It's terrible how these quilts keep trying to stay here.

And here's a peek at the backyard stuff.  We have had a lot of tomatoes. I've put up a few jars of salsa and as you can see, there are lots more that need to be canned. I've given tomatoes to most of our neighbors just because they are so good fresh!

Miss Ru is not out of the woods yet, but we do see improvement. She has been one very sick little girl. Long way to go yet before she's back to her usual beautiful self, but we believe she'll get there. She is still in hospital.

I do hope there are many good things where you are. If you look, there's almost always something to bring a smile to your face. I am incredibly thankful for God's goodness to us, even in the midst of not-so-fun things.

Hugs and kisses,

Your Quilt of Compassion is beautiful.
I hope Miss Ru is well soon. She is often in my thoughts.

A lovely finish with your quilt. And I am surprised you are already picking so many tomatoes!
Best wishes again to Miss Ru. I am amazed you are getting any sewing done while she is still in hospital. It is a stressful time and I hope your sewing helps you relax.

I have been wondering how your sweet Miss Ru has been doing. I'm glad to hear that she's improving but saddened to hear that she's still in the hospital. I will continue to pray for her healing ... And for your peace. {{{hug}}}

Awww Elaine. I'm so sorry to hear that Miss Ru is still in the hospital. Your quilt is beautiful -- I don't know how you get all these projects done -- let alone with Miss Ru in the hospital!

Sorry to hear about Miss Ru. I sure hope and pray she gets better real soon.
Your quilt is beautiful. The salsa sounds delicious. Your tomatoes look so good.
Hope you have a Happy Fourth of July and Miss Ru will get to come home from the hospital for the holiday.
