Hi Quilters!

Today at the Cabin....

Well..... 4 more days until we leave for vacation. This will be a 1 week, friends and family bike trip around the UP of Michigan, Northern Wisconsin and Northern Minnesota. Can't wait! Then back for a week and off to Alaska for a niece's wedding. Whew!! This summer is flying by. The Solstice came and went and I didn't even realize it. Between work in the garden, getting the pool opened up and getting ready to be gone, it seems like days run into nights run into days... After all of that nonsense, it will be county fair time, then harvest, and then the leaves will change and drop and then the snow will fly! Yikes! Enough of that....

Yes, looking forward to my vacation. The Northern Tier on 2 wheels. It doesn't get any better than that!

Science of Color - Why Do Those Fabrics Go Together....

by Debby Henry

At one time or another, we have all looked at a color combination and thought, "I would never have put those fabrics together, but they look... fabulous!" Do you know why? There is actually a science to it. How much do you know about color theory?

Homesteading Corner....

Going on Maintenance Mode....

Surprisingly, there has not been much homestead-y stuff going on, other than the daily maintenance. I found one of my adult duck hens in my lilac bushes, sitting on about 15 eggs. Really? Like I need more ducks! They are pretty, and fun to watch and I love to fill up the wading pool for them so they splash and play, but there are 23 of them. That is quite enough I think! How many babies there will be has yet to be seen.

Garden is in, so now there is hoeing and culling and replanting. The onions look awesome and there are blossoms on the squash, melons, pumpkins and cuke plants. The beans and peas are climbing the trellises like that's their job, the potatoes have emerged from the haybales that I planted them in. The lawn needs to be mowed every other minute and I just start to get caught up when it rains again. Which give the weeds another shot at life, the grass another burst, but is great for my flowers. Still to do this week, clean up the leoftovers from planting, get the rest of the holly hocks planted...

Funny Story...

I LOVE hollyhocks! Well, this spring, I decided that anytime I had a leftover pot or cell of dirt, I was going to plant a couple of hollyhock seeds. Great, right? Well we may have overdone it a bit. And I'm talking HUNDREDS of hollyhock plants. Not complaining, I love them, but they do need to find a more permanent home than in their pots on my deck! And then I'll go back to my mowing and hoeing.....
