  1. Happy birthday wishes to your dad! Oh dear, I see what you mean about the red border....no, it's not the same, is it. Love the other quilts too. We took a photo of a painted fern in Butchart Gardens, B.C., we didn't know its name - it's so pretty, and your gardens are looking good this summer!

  2. Wonderful post, Debra! Glad to see your Dad is doing better.

    Your swap blocks are gorgeous! Will you be putting sashing between the blocks?

    Mary's and my quilt turned out lovely and I can't wait to see my quilt! Many thanks for picking it up for me.

    Your flowers .... well, gorgeous. Can I have a piece of the painted fern? I've never seen that one before and I will have to search out a place up here for different hydrangeas.

    You have quite a lot of places to sit on your front porch. We'll have to do that when I come down in Sept.

  4. Love what you have done with your blocks and the red and white top. Your front yard looks really pretty. The earth in Canada really grows well.
