A Walk in the Garden

First I wanted to share these fun quilt blocks that have a garden feel.  The two blocks below are
Aurifil Designer 2014 Blocks of the Month.

June Block

May Block
I plan to get the July block ready to stitch today.

I thought it would be fun to share what we did with an old garden gate that we got from my sister.  It did not fit the opening to our back yard but I think it changes the feel of the old cyclone fence that it there now.

I think the new gate goes well with the rusty arbor covered with an Akebia vine.

Just to the right of the gate are raspberries waiting to be picked.  I love to eat them as I pick them but have managed to get a few to the freezer.

My Faithful Friends quilt is bound and ready to be mailed to someone special.

I think it is time to go pick and eat a few raspberries.. 
I hope joy in the little blessings today.


  1. The gate looks perfect, like it was always meant to be there. The one thing I miss, is my raspberry bushes, I would go out in the morning and pick some to put on my cereal.

  2. I love the gate! It looksovy there!

    Your quilt is beautiful!

  3. I love the fabrics in your BOM. Fig Tree? I am going to have to find some of that lovely minty green for my daughter. Your stitchery looks lovely, too. Thanks for the walk beyond the gate and up the beautiful garden path ... :) Pat

  4. Love, love, love that gate. :) blessings, marlene
