Hooked on 'Littles'

Hi Everyone. It's been ages and ages since I blogged. Recently CT added a monthly 'little quilt' quilt along. I was already getting hooked on smaller quilts so signed up. It's been very addictive. Mari has posted here on the main page when each new project comes out. Here's my progress so far.

Picked up a basket of windblowns. The rest are just short of being ready. So I made a cobbler and a pie and what? It's past noon already.

Yikes-It's Zucchini Season Already!?!

Oh my. I went on a 1 week vacation and came back to a counter full of zucchini! On the pnone, DS said there would probably be a few ready to pick when I got home.
