The fabric in the burp cloths is adorable, how cute.

Patricia G Hayes - Hi Anne,
What a great idea bringing your camera along on your farmer’s market trip this day. I truly love the carrot’s photo, they are looking yummy. Some look like a variety I am not familiar with All your photos, the brightness made them all simply tempting to eat right now. hehe Don’t I wish. The berries, this must be your second of the season??
Anyway thanks for sharing with all of us.
Wow, this is going to call for more trips across the pond, another little body soon to be on your lap. How wonderful.
Enjoy every minute with your family. Patricia

Patricia G Hayes - Wow, sounds like you are truly busy however a fun time with all your new projects soon to be shown to us. I would like to have my doggie but as we are still traveling some after my back surgery heals I cannot have one as yet. Boo Hoo am so anxious to have a pet doggie too, Anne. HUbbie want to travel some more, especially to NH and PA.

I am in the middle of a project adding my Sticky Fabri-Solvy and ran out tonight, Sat night, so that is why I sent that quick message to you. I will manage just fine till I hear from you.’

So I shall manage till I hear whether you are still selling it. PGH, Florida

SandyG - Congratulations, one more chemo treatment to go for your DIL and all of you. That is exciting news!
We look forward to seeing the new patterns. xx

Anita - Where do you go for your farmers market? I’m local and would love to check it out :) thanks!

May 17, 2014 - 7:40 pm

Miss Jean - Our local farmer’s market is a treasure trove of doggies being walked! Not sure why they wouldn’t allow them there. Chelsea and Milkshake would be good! Boy, those cherries look amazing! We just started getting them here. I found some in the store the other day – pitiful looking! I can’t wait to see your new patterns. I love market time. Do you happen to know the link to the video Moda does every time with all the designers? I always look forward to it.

Take care and Mollie and Maggie send their best.

May 17, 2014 - 8:23 pm

DeAnna Dodson - Wow! You’ve been busy! Looking forward to seeing all your new stuff when it’s available.

What beautiful produce. Delicious. And Milkshake sure looks cute. :D

May 18, 2014 - 6:23 am

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne! I was surprised to see Doug’s picture at the top of your post. I met him when he was just 12 or 13, already designing quilts at that young age. His family used to own/operate a local quilt shop. Such a nice young man and so talented. I’ll miss seeing your quilt booth this time around but look fwd to all the new patterns. I’m so glad that your DIL is near the end of treatments.

May 18, 2014 - 10:19 pm

pam - I’m with you Anne, watched social media all weekend. I missed the people for sure, but seeing postings about cancelled and delayed flights and the hot setup, not so sad. Glad to hear that your DIL is at the end of her treatment and hope that she is responding well. She’s lucky to have a nice mother-in-law like you. Love the pictures of the dogs. That name, Milkshake, just cracks me up. So cute. xop

May 19, 2014 - 10:41 am

ina - our favorite strawberry guy is back at the farmer’s market near us….we’ve missed him all winter! yay for fresh fruit other than an apple or banana! ;p

May 19, 2014 - 6:07 pm

Barb - Can’t wait to see your new patterns. Based on everything you’ve ever designed /made in the past I just know they will all be too, too wonderful!!

I’m so happy to read that your precious DIL is nearing the end of chemo – I’m sending my prayers to all of you. Blessings and strength.

It used to be a small city but that has changed since more people are getting out of the Bay Area to move here to retire. My Mom and my sister live in Jamestown which is about 3 miles away. Shadow likes to help quilt by laying on top of the fabric and giving her approval. She even has her own quilt but she still has to help. She certainly would approve of the Sweet Lily Quilt. Just need to win some Windsor Lane fabric. Thank you for the chance to win and joining in the ModA Blog Hop.

It is actualy quite annoying especially to my husband. Catsm you never know what kind you will get until they grow up. Crazy!

September 8, 2012 - 7:38 am

Gloria B - I live in a High Wycombe, UK. It is not an attractive town as most of the attractive bits were modernised in the 1960’s. Though, if one looks above the shop fronts, traces of the original Georgian town can be seen.
And there are a lot of really pretty villages within a few miles.

September 8, 2012 - 7:38 am

I live in a suburb just outside of Detroit and sadly, we just lost our beloved dog of 15 1/2 years about 3 months ago. He was easily the sweetest Bichon ever and we miss him very much. So, as I remind everyone with a wonderful fur family member, cherish them every single day.

Lou Carter - HI Anne:) I live in Copperas Cove TX next to the world’s largest military base in the world….Ft Hood:)
I am a cat person so have a few:) They are in order of age….Fluffy 18, Buster 9, Waldo 7, KoKo about a year, MisKiti less than KoKo…they were our recent strays that found me:) Then MisKiti had 6 babies that are now 3 weeks old. They are Gemma, Jax, Cinder, Jam, Jelly, and Tigger 2. Am hoping to find homes for most of them but if not they have one here. These are the indoor ones. Then there is Twin that is the baby daddy and he is outside stray. Sad these lovely animals get dumped or left behind everyday around here.
I am a big Bunny Hill fan and have stitched a few of your quilts:) Thanks for teh lovely ideas!

I’m in the country in the upper midwest, hot in summer but very cold in winter, and I love the seasons. We are just a short drive to malls and cultural events, so we have the best of both here. I am currently between pets, but as you know, Max was my precious little cat for 22 years and still in my heart :)

September 8, 2012 - 8:05 am

Becky Greene - I live in Milford, PA and we do not have any official pets right now. However, living in a woodland community in the Pocono Mountains, we have plenty of wildlife that has decided this is a great place to live. We see deer and wild turkeys practically every day. We also have bunnies, foxes, and other small creatures. Bears are around (I have seen two this year), but I am not outside at the right time to see very many (hubby has seen six so far). The most exciting was the Mom and three baby skunks that lived under our shed for a few days. Fingers crossed that we were just their vacation spot because I haven’t seen them lately – the babies were adorable though!!

September 8, 2012 - 8:05 am

Jan - Right now, we only have one pet, a handsome 13 year old Cairn Terrier named Dudley. He’s lived with us 10 years, he’s a rescue and we’re his third owners. He loves to go on walks and to cuddle, he loves his afternoon naps with my husband, too. Lizzie, aka “killer”, just passed. She was 15, a Cairn and a rescue, too. She was a great girl, but couldn’t abide any uninvited critters in the backyard. On her walks she didn’t care, but not in “her” backyard.

September 8, 2012 - 8:05 am

Beth Strand - I live in Oregon City, Oregon with six cats and one dog. Our cats are Stanley (elderly and nearly blind), his self-appointed flirty nurse cat, Winnie (who is asthmatic), Griffie and Zoe, the siblings (Zoe is the Queen of All She Surveys), Jack (my younger daughter’s cat who is fond of jumping on shoulders of people as they pass by, thus “hi-jacking” them), and Gizmo, the baby who sleeps with my husband and I every night. Then there is dear, sweet, patient Nick. Nick is 106 pounds of Lab who loves the couch, his mom, and fetching a stick out of water…but if there’s not water, he will not fetch anything! So, there’s my crazy animal family. It was so fun stopping by to see you!

September 8, 2012 - 8:06 am

I live all the way across the country– in southern Alabama— about 30 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico– in a small farming community called Rosinton. I love it here. We moved into our new home a couple years ago. Our cats, Mr. Fat and Newt– along with their new- found friend, Clarance Rogers (there’s a whole story about how *that* name came about ;-) absolutely love prowling around on my Dad’s 40 acres. We also have 2 shelties- Mandy and Kolby– who absolutely love it here too! Mandy, even though she doesn’t look like it, is our guard dog. She lets us know if a plane, or bird, or even the International Space Station (another story) flies over! LOL A couple weeks ago, she *really* proved herself by alerting us to a big rattlesnake that had found it’s way into our back yard!

Thank you so much for the chance to win one of your wonderful prizes!!! My fingers are crossed!! (And so are Clarance’s eyes ;-)

And while it’s not the same as having my own, it IS a whole lot cheaper!!! ;-)
Chelsea is a real personality!! I don’t know any critter who could have taken me on that beautiful tour. And just what is she planning to do with this Moda Candy she’s been eyeing?

STACEY LARSON - Chelsea is soo cute. And boy do they all (our pets) know how to get under our skin. But the love they return in priceless. I have 2 dogs – Piper and Crystal. Piper is a mini pin / jack russel mix. She very loving but very bossy! Crystal is our Lab/Border collie mix. Piper is the boss over Crystal which is rather funny. We also have a cat that is orange and white named Garfield and he is big and fat. You can’t see his feet when he sits. We couldn’t have named him better. We also have 2 other cats that came together to our home. We went for one which is Brownie (a black cat) but there was a sweet little kitty with one eye that had been thrown from a car that no one wanted to rescue so we adopted her too. We named her Sparkle and she is the most loving cat I know. Last but not least is my “husbands” guinea pig. She only squeaks when he pulls in the driveway and that’s because he’s spoiled her and cuts her fresh grass when he gets home from the yard. Totally not making this up. He’s Mr. Tough guy and tries to pretend she’s not his but Mollie is under his skin! We live in Apex, NC and it awesome here. We are about 20 min from Raleigh. Thanks for pattern, info on your hometown with Chelsea and your chance for TREATS. :)

The pets who own me are two cats named Calvin and Cheyenne and a Husky/Australian Shepherd mix named Daisy. She gave us a scare today…had a full blown seizure, but we took her to the vet and she’ll be fine. I’d love to make a quilt with those fabrics…they’re beautiful!

Do you know how many Norwalks and Des Moines’s there are in the US? a LOT!

kitty - I loved your post!
I live in The Hague, Holland.
Actually I have no pet ay all. Sadly my border terrier Willow died 2 years ago and my cat Omar 1 year later. Some months ago one of my daughters turned out to be allergic to cats and she had to find a shelter for a sweet little kitten she had bought a couple of months earlier for her daughter, Since I had no pet around Tiger came to live with me. Unfortunately he was very unhappy in my condo. He was used to take long walks outside to do some chasing-sorry, I mean birdwatching and here he had just a small balcony where he was too much exposed for the birds to come close enough for a detailed study. So I found him an other home with garden and he”s happy. I’m happy for him, but a little sad too. I really loved that little Tiger.

Julie in WA - Oh, my, such a creative and delightful post! I do like your writing style! (Can you tell this is my first visit to your blog….I think)
I live in the greater Seattle area in the beautiful Pacific NW! We have one dog in our household….Rosey the Bichon Frisse. Oh, we also have rats, but they are not really pets. They live somewhere in the backyard and eat my garden and apples. Good thing we have Rosey, for she has caught and killed two already!

Next is Cooter, he is a 3 year old golden lab, and then our latest addition is Ozzy, my son’s 4 month old golden lab. Can you tell we like labs? They are such great pets to have for kids, my boys have loved growing up with them, especially Annie but I’m afraid a very very VERY sad day is not too far away because she is so old. And then my horses, I have Hank, he is a 11 year old appendix gelding, he is my BIG baby and I love him so much. And then last but surely not least we have Dax, he is our 4 year old mini horse, he is quite the little rascal!

September 8, 2012 - 9:32 am

Chris - Anne,
This is probably the nicest blog post I’ve ever read. The tour of your town is wonderful. Living on those waterways would be such a temptation for me. Swim? Any moment I felt like jumping in? And a few miles away for fresh produce. Can you stand it? Chelsea really has busy days being your right hand gal. Can’t wait to try out the new Moda Candies – I’ll call my local shop and see if they’re in. I have three assistants who are always by my side (except when the vacuum cleaner sings): Bryn (a yellow lab), Dolly (a black lab) and Maui (sweet white/black/caramel ) kitty who is named for our favorite island. We’re going to make two of your doll quilts for special little grand nieces for Christmas!

September 8, 2012 - 9:33 am

Jenelle Boxberger - I loved your tour, it was so nice oc Chelsea to help you on the tour. I can see why she gets all kinds of attention and pets.

We are moving into the Meridian home as soon as we have the “face lift” complete. The Marsing property is a horse property but we have sold the horses and all we have left is an old, kind of pinkish lookling cat named Pinkerstein VonOlson, Pinky for short. He was a stray that we inherited. Pinky was an outside cat until several years ago when he was shot. After 8 weeks in the house with a series of casts, he decided that he prefered living inside so now that is where he spends most of his time. Spoiled, Yes definitely. He even helps in the sewing room from time to time,

Tina Osbotne - Cute Fabric. I live in Taylorsville Utah a suburb of Salt Lake City. My pets name was Wickett because he looked just like an Ewok but when he passed away I chose to not get another dog. I do have a cat that seems to have adopted us this summer though. We are not going to name her.

September 8, 2012 - 10:01 am

Elizabeth S. - Thanks so much for sharing! I love your sense of humor. We have a houseful by many standards. Our cats are now officially “geriatric,” but don’t tell them that! :) Rambalam (as in “woah black kitty, rambalam”) is a 10 y/o black long hair, Mac is his littermate and a shorthair grey, and Clovey is a white and stripe 11 y/o fatty. They are my project inspectors – making sure all of my crocheted blankets and quilted projects are just cuddly enough. Finally, we adopted a mixed breed, Maddie, this summer. They think she’s part Boxer and part German Shepherd, but who knows what else. She’s not quite a year old and stubborn as all get out!! She has brought us such joy, though. I’ve been keeping an eye out for a knitted mouse for you. Maddie has recently acquired an oinking pig which she loves and I know she would be devastated to lose it. We live in Sioux City, Iowa these days.

VickiT - My little town is South Beloit, IL. We are right on the IL and WI border near the center top of the state and only an hour away from the suburbs of Chicago. It’s nice living here as it’s so quiet.

My husband and I have a gorgeous Blue Mitted Ragdoll cat which we drove all the way to MI to buy after visiting a number of other catteries. Right now my poor Baby (actually that’s his name too) has his little nose out of joint because one of my twins has moved back home again along with his fiancee and our newest and most adorable 7 month old Granddaughter. Along with them came his two Toy Fox Terrier dogs and their puppy. My kitty is not too pleased at all that dog activity in HIS house. lol He is even less impressed with that little person that squeals VERY loudly each time she sees him. He totally freaks out at that noise and then turns and runs away. I’m sure that my poor kitty has NO clue that the squealing little person will soon be chasing him when she learns to crawl and then walk. LOL It should be interesting. He is used to just my husband and myself in our very quiet home, or what USED to be very quiet.

Thank you for the wonderful little quilt and chance to win your gorgeous fabrics. I cannot wait to be able to buy myself a bunch of the cute candy packs and see what things I can make with them. I LOVE that they are more affordable for those of us who are on SS or disability.

selina - Wonderful assistant you have there. So professional. I have an assistant too. Her name is Tinkerbell, she is a rather large Bulldog. Her job is to protect the floor space that lies between my cutting table, ironing board and sewing machine.

Cheryl Genualdo - I live in Meriden, CT. We have several pets: Chase (cocker spaniel), Smokey, Koal and Paws (our cats) and many fish! Smokey likes to check out my sewing table when I’m cutting. I need to make sure he isn’t in my way. LOL

Sandra Jo Roberts - I live in Laguna Hills, California. It gets busier here each year, but I’m pretty good at staying out of traffic.
I have a cat named Baby. That was her name when we adopted her at a year and a half old from Petsmart. She was so sweet and shy and hid behind the desk the first day. So we brought home a kitten the next day because we wanted to have two cats to keep each other company. Well, “Baby” came out from behind the desk and tried to attack the kitten all day. So I took the kitten back, and Baby has never gone behind the desk again. We now call her BK. Which stands for Baby Kitty and Bad Kitty and Bird Killer…well, you get the drift.

September 8, 2012 - 5:49 pm

Mr. Bear would be happy to show Miss Chelsea all of HIS favorite toys, and maybe even share some of them. Mr. Bear is a Belgian Shepherd mix, he’s the BEST dog I have ever owned. Mr. Bear looks like a big black wolf with a fabulously soft, dense, long fur coat. He has a MANE of bunny soft fur, just like a lion. He’s a winter time dog which works out well in Nebraska, because we get some serious winter here. The youngster at age 4 is Murphy the gollie (GOLden retriever-border colLIE) cross. Gollie describes his personality very well. He’s golden retriever goofy all mixed up with border collie rabble rouser. Murphy looks like a small golden retriever, except he’s border collie black and white. Murphy makes me laugh, I mean belly laugh, each and every day. Murphy would throw a big party if Miss Chelsea came to visit. I would give all the dogs special treats and play with them too. I love my dogs even more than I love fabric and Bunny Hill patterns, and that is saying a LOT.

Elaine - Loved the pic of discovery bay, didn’t know that existed. I live in Mooresville, NC north of Charlotte. I thought it funny that Charlotte wants to be recognized nationally and every time the talking heads at the DNC mentioned Charlotte, they added NC. No pets in our household at this time.

Nicole J - I live in Carrington, ND. A nice small town with a great quilt shop. We currently only have one fish living in our house and I don’t think it was ever named. Although the first 3 fish we had were Oso, Wolfie, and Dottie after the disney show Special Agent Oso. :)

September 8, 2012 - 7:33 pm

Donna Liljegren - Hi Anne:
I live in North Port, Florida. (It’s nowhere near the water, like Campbellsport, WI, where we lived before our move south). We didn’t even realize the “Port” connection ’til we’d lived her for a while. My husband and I grew up in Florida prior to moving to Florida in our “retirement” twelve years ago.

Taggart (aka “Tag”), my Pembroke Welsh Corgi, said that I should let you know he really liked looking at the pictures of Chelsea, and learning all about where you live with her. He does like the swimming pool, but we don’t let him swim in the ocean. Too scary! He also asked me to tell you and Chelsea that he writes his own blog posts on Tuesdays where he shares his stories of life with his Mom and Dad.

Thanks for the chance to win one of your gorgeous fabric assortments. We’re big fans!
xoxo
Donna and Tag

Judy H. - Memphis, Tennessee is my home. Our beloved greyhound, Linda, recently passed away so at the moment we are pet-less! I absolutely love the Windsor Lane fabric line and have been waiting several months for its arrival. Two quilts for little girls are waiting to be made with the fabric. The girls live in England so “Windsor Lane” is aptly named!

Renee Welton - My home town is Plymouth, Michigan. We have a miniature dachshund named Grady. He is our third doxie. First was Gertie, then when she was three we added Gus. Gertie and Gus had five litters of puppies, sooooo cute. When Gertie died at almost 17 years old Gus was beside himself. He had never lived here without her. So…..he had to start going to the Embroidery Shop that we own, with us, everyday. He became the perfect shop dog. When he died at 16 years old, we were beside ourselves. We had had a dachshund in the house for 20 years. So, even though we said we wouldn’t…….we found Grady two months later. We went from an old, deaf, docile dachshund, to a wild and crazy four month old baby. It took some getting used to, but he is the new shop dog and has so many fans. He gets his own treats at Christmas, and special goodies all throughout the year. He is our baby, until we have grandkids!!

Kim - Hi Anne: I live in Calgary, AB, Canada and have two furry pets, Charlie and Teeka, who help me with my pattern designing too. They test out all my designs by lying on either the fabric before it’s made up into a quilt, or on the quilt itself upon completion. Although they’re a few years apart in age, we adopted them both at the same time and now they’re inseparable. Teeka is the demure, quiet mother cat and Charlie is the crazy, noisy teenage-type cat (he’s an orange tabby, need I say more?). I can’t imagine not having them in our home.
Thanks for hosting this giveaway – I’d love to win some of your fabric.

September 8, 2012 - 8:13 pm

Cindy - Hello Chelsea,
What a great job you did on showing us around your hometown.
We live in Hagerstown, MD…75 miles west of Washington, D.C. You know where the President lives.

Well, Chelsea, we have two precious cats that adopted us. Muggs has lived with us for 12 years and Patches adopted us a year ago. There has been adjustment periods, but we are all living together in harmony.

There have been many pets in our family and we have been grateful to have all of them over the years.
Keep up the good work, Chelsea

September 8, 2012 - 8:14 pm

Pam - I live in Richmond, VA and my fur baby is Maggie Moo. She’s the best! She tests all my quilts for me so we know they are soft to the paw and good to sleep on. Your Chelsea is adorable!

Can you tell I live in the country? One day, if I ever settle down and don’t volunteer anymore, I will own a black lab, my dream dog.

September 8, 2012 - 8:17 pm

Karen CA - I have to say I know exactly where Discovery Bay is. My husband’s aunt and uncle used to live there several years ago and I loved visiting them because they lived on the water and we would go out in their little boat and paddle around! I live a few hours away in Merced in the Central Valley. We have one dog, Daisy (named by our daughter when she was little because she is all white) that we rescued from the pound many years ago and she has been the perfect dog.

September 8, 2012 - 8:18 pm

Mimi - We live in hot, but beautiful Scottsdale, AZ. The best dog in the whole world (we tell him this every day!) is
Cooper, an adorable Boston Terrier. When we take him on walks each day, we carry a spray bottle filled with cold water for him. It’s not an ideal climate for Boston Terriers, but he loves his daily walks as long as he can get drinks from the spray bottle! Love your blog post, Anne!

September 8, 2012 - 8:20 pm

Susan Hansen - I live in SE Idaho and have a grand-dog that visits daily, she is a boxer and so beautiful. I love the fact that when her children are visiting she is always where they are watching a helping take care of them. Her newest child is a little boy with some health issues and she sleep by him. For the first three weeks he was home from the hospital she would only leave his side long enough to take care of business. I can see the Grand Tetons out my front window, and I too have beautiful farm ground all around me.

Lois - I am from Sutton, NE. We live in a small apartment so do not have any pets.

September 8, 2012 - 8:40 pm

Diane - This is my favorite comment question so far ! We have kitties named Bobo and Tippy. Bobo started out as “Hobo” when he showed up at our back door 6 years ago at 7 am and 7 pm every day. He kept coming back but was afraid of us and it took 4 months to gain his trust. Once we did and he came into our house to be part of our family, our daughter said, “You can’t call him “hobo” any more, Mom”. But he already knew his name. We tried “Bobo” and he couldn’t tell the difference–tee-hee! (Please tell Chelsea I love her!).

September 8, 2012 - 8:41 pm

Nancy C. in Utah - Hi Anne! Wow, Chelsea is a girl on the go isn’t she? I can see why she needs a sleeping drawer after swimming for a photo op and shopping for veggies!!! Just seeing her busy day made me tired, LOL. Thanks so much for the adorable pattern, way cute! Thanks too for a chance, however small given the number of comments here *sigh*…Ah well, I live in a little town in Utah about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City. I currently have two sweet furry babes, both girls, on Schnauzer 12 years old next Jan. named Fraulien Friskie and her younger sister a Schnauzer/Poodle mix we rescued when she was 15 months old and barely alive. That sweeties name is Sadie Jo and she will be 8 years old next month. Funny thing about us finding her was we didn’t know her name until we said we wanted her and when they told us, my hubby said “See, it was meant to be”. You see, my middle name is Jo and I have a daughter who’s middle name is also Jo. So after we got Sadie Jo, it is just like Pettycoat Junction around here, *wink*. Big Hugs to you and scratches to all your furry babes.
***by the way, we may be getting a cat from a shelter or rescue group very soon as my both my doctors and all the research says that cats are a huge help in calming stress and pain in people with auto-immune diseases such as Lupus, Scleroderma, MS, etc. I have always loved cats so I’m very tickled with the thought of having one, maybe two, to keep me company along with my current ‘kids’, in my sewing room or where ever I am in the house.

September 8, 2012 - 8:43 pm

Mary on Lake Pulaski - Well, you’ve been at my house Anne, so you know where I live! It’s still just as beautiful here on the lake.

He was the runt of the litter & when I picked him out when I was 5 years old, all the adults told me to pick a different one because he wouldn’t make it. I fed him with an eye dropper for weeks. He was such a good cat & I miss him all the time. On a happier note, your fabric is beautiful! The pattern would make a perfect doll quilt for my daughter. Thanks for the giveaway!

September 8, 2012 - 9:51 pm

Deborah Fields - I live in Harvest, Alabama which was surrounded by cotton fields, but is fast becoming housing developments. We are outside Huntsville. I have two rescued female dogs. I urge EVERYONE to rescue animals from the Pounds, etc. There are so many homeless animals needing homes! Lily Belle is an orange and white English Setter. She has a spot around and over her right eye which makes her even more special. She’s an energetic 4-year old who loves everyone! I fell in love with her the first moment I saw her at 3 months old at the Pound. Her long legs and thin body make her a really fast runner even though she had to have both her hip joints rotated at 11mos. of age. Amazing how dogs can recover from things! She has bolts and wires n her, but has never let that slow her down! My other dog is Bella Boo. She had been dropped in the night drop box at another Pound at 6 mos. of age. She is part Havernese and part Maltese with long black hair and a white diamond on her chest. She weighs 10 pounds and is a real cutie with a loving personality. She has a “bustle” of fluffy long hair from her midsection to her tail which I call her TuTu. She has been a wonderful playmate to Lily (once Lily decided she could stay!) despite the difference in size. Bella is 17 mos. old now and is getting long strands of white hair down the middle of her back. Makes me wonder if she might be part ….skunk?? Naw! My dogs are wonderful companions and they have me very well trained to respond to whatever they want!! Guess this is really a long “comment”, but can’t stop talking about my girls!

September 8, 2012 - 9:55 pm

Liz - BeaUtiful material. We have 2 “pets” . They don’t really see themselves as our pets….maybe more that we are there caretakers. Our first lovey is a 5 year old Australian Labradoodle called Darby and our second is a 16 year old tuxedo cat who is the size of a kitten named Clyde.

September 8, 2012 - 9:56 pm

Nancy Watkins - Hi! I live in St. Croix Falls, WI on the border of MN. We don’t have any pets but I’ve always jokingly referred to my husband, Ron, as my pet!

September 8, 2012 - 9:58 pm

Ruth B - Chelsea is a doll. I live in Washburn, Wisconsin. I have 2 dogs – a boxer named Mocha and a Pekingese named Minnie. They are both rescue dogs so we’re not sure about their ages but we think Mocha is about 14 years old and Minnie is about 8. Mocha is mellow and gentle and Minnie is insane. Seriously. She has issues. Love your fabrics Anne and just finished a baby quilt made out of Lily and Will. So sweet!

September 8, 2012 - 10:01 pm

Judy D - Hi Anne, I live in Surrey BC Canada, I have a beautiful Gingersnap Boy Beagle. He is our third Beagle but our first boy. He is sooo smart and such a joy to both of us.

September 8, 2012 - 10:13 pm

Bebe - Hello: I really like your patterns, designs and fabrics. They cheer me up whenever I see them. I especially like how you incorporate animals into your quilt patterns.
I live on a farm in southern Middle Tn. Very rural area, with lots of deer, coyotes, owls, snakes, and such. So, we have three dogs, which I like to call “Stinky, Stanky and Spanky.” They really do smell…..(only people who own dogs will know what I’m talking about.)
I really like your little quilt. It’s very sweet!

September 8, 2012 - 10:13 pm

September 8, 2012 - 10:19 pm

Cheryl B. - My husband and I retired and moved in a retirement community a little over 1-1/2 years ago. We now lived in Shorewood, IL and our two dogs moved with us. We have two Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers named Murphy and Maddie who are real charmers . They each have their own unique personalities! They would love to have their own little quilts.

September 8, 2012 - 10:33 pm

Di - I live in beautiful Adelaide, South Australia. My husband has yabbies, do they count as pets? If I had a dog, her name would be Charlotte.

September 8, 2012 - 10:37 pm

Karen O - Hi, I live in Lino Lakes, MN. I have a wonderful cat named Smokey. He found us 6 years ago – he was almost dead from starvation, and had been attacked by the local feral cats. He is now fat and happy. I have been told he might be a Blue Russian. He was already neutered and declawed in front when he found us and adopted us, which helped me out a lot.

September 8, 2012 - 10:37 pm

Béatrice - OMG, too much comments already… I live in a very small rural village in heart of France and my last dog is called Patch :)

September 8, 2012 - 10:49 pm

Lori - Hi, I now live in irvine, California, but I grew up in Danville, CA and the population back then was about 10,000! No one had ever heard of it either (didn’t even show up on maps) so I just said I was from SF! We have two dogs…mrs beans-a chocolate lab and rocky- a very large, long-legged, not so smart golden retriever. Beans likes to lay in the sun and therefore has reddish highlights near her eyes. Rocky likes to watch TV and go for car rides where he stares out the window at the white lines on the road! Chelsea is very cute. Thanks for the entertaining blog-very creative!

September 8, 2012 - 10:52 pm

Mary Jo - I live in the center of Minnesota, close to a small town Long Prairie. We have a dog, named Teddy. Several outside cats not all named. One is MAMA and another is Earless. Poor thing lost her ears one very cold winter but it doesn’t seem to bother her. Love your fabric and designs.

September 8, 2012 - 10:58 pm

Anne - I live in Poulsbo, WA and have two cats named Missy and Skye. They are going on 3 years of age in December and for those years have been helping me with my quilting passion. My quilts start with them testing the feel and comfort of the fabric, helping me ‘rearrange’ my blocks on my design wall, to the last snuggle test before the quilts get washed. It is uncanny how they come up with some of the designs and color combination! Thanks for letting me brag about them.

September 8, 2012 - 11:00 pm

janita - I live in the midwest. IOWA : ) We have 2 dogs abandonded by 2 daughters….. how does that happen??? Molly and Harley. I would love some of your treasures. thank you for a chance. janita

September 8, 2012 - 11:03 pm

Bronwyn - Hi Anne, I love hearing about Chelseas adventures. We have a little jack russell called Sid. He rules the house. He has a special place in my sewing room where he keeps watch. he growls at the back door when he wants to go out “for some freash air”. We also have a guinea pig his name is Winston. He was originally my daughers pet but you know how it goes, they get “too ” old for pets. So he became mine. He is good at cleaning up the vegetable scraps. Sid and Winno say hello to Chelsea keep up the adventures.

September 8, 2012 - 11:06 pm

Bronwyn - Hi Anne, (again)
Got so caught up talking about my pets, I forgot to mention that I live in a small country town in Australia, Monbulk, population is about 4000.

September 8, 2012 - 11:07 pm

Fran - I’m from Roseville, CA and I have 2 rescued cocker spaniels from Classic Kennels, a cocker spaniel rescue, right here in Roseville. Our multi colored cocker is Sadie and she is almost 7, we got her when she was 2 and our black and white boy, we just got last April, and his name is Chase, and he is quite the puppy still now turning 2. I’m sure he would be eating all your little bundles. We also have a 14 year old cat named Patches. I love all your patterns and your generosity with my quilt guild the past 4 years. Your dog looks like he found the perfect home.

September 8, 2012 - 11:14 pm

Deb - Hi Anne,
I’m from Christchurch, New Zealand where we have had the big earthquakes over the past 2 years. We’re all hanging in limbo waiting for decisions to be made about our homes, whether rebuilding or repairing. If we didn’t have our gorgeous buddies in pets it would be pretty hard. We have a long haired black pussycate called Frank and an 8mth old Golden labrador . border collie cross called George. They are the best friends we could ask for. A bit bigger than Chelsea though!!

September 8, 2012 - 11:15 pm

Zooperson - Love Miss Chelsea. I live in LA with my rescued fur babies- Lady Caroline Lamb (white poodle who was cut so short she looked like a little lamb so I named her after Lord Byron’swife), Arthur, a chiwinnie, Valentine, a papillon, and a kitty named Alfie.

September 8, 2012 - 11:18 pm

Leslie - I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada . We have a little dog named Dexter who is 9 years old.

September 8, 2012 - 11:23 pm

Sunnybec - I live in France but originally from the UK. I now only have one Dog Sam who is around 11 years old and is a Jack Russell. I lost my other dog, Lady, only 3 weeks ago but I still think she deserves a mention as she reached the grand old age of 19 years and 4 months, our house is very quiet without her. Linda

September 8, 2012 - 11:24 pm

Janice - Chelsea is adorable. I didn’t know there was such a cool place up on the Delta. I’m down here in Fresno living with my 2 kitties, Kiki (6) and Puddy-tat (12). I would love to have a little dog, but I travel so much for work it wouldn’t be fair to one.

I love your fabrics and have used several of your collections. I can’t wait for the new one to come out. I love the green colorway.

Thanks for the great give away. Good luck everyone.

September 8, 2012 - 11:24 pm

Mary Bitner - I love the new colors of fabric you’ve chosen. By the time I get done with the 5 blankets I’m working on for my kids for Christmas, I’ll be ready for some fresh spring colors! My family moved to Bluffdale, UT 1 yr ago, a 12 min drive from our old neighborhood in Draper. We miss our friends but are making new ones here. I have found there are great quilters no matter where you live :) Unfortunately, to my kids dismay, we do not have domestic pets. We make up for it with running a sheep ranch & there are dogs & horses they can ride. San Fran is on my list of places to visit!

September 8, 2012 - 11:32 pm

Julie T. - I moved from Napa, California to a small town SE of Phoenix. I think somewhere way back when I had heard the name Discovery Bay, but sure don’t know where it is either!

September 8, 2012 - 11:33 pm

Lemon Tree Tami - What sweet little “candies” .. no wonder Chelsea wants to keep them. We’re not terribly far from you all at Bunny Hill. We live in Sunnyvale, CA near a nice park which is great for our two cairn terriers, Fearghus and our newest one, Fiona. They’re jealous of Chelsea because they don’t get to go into my studio. That’s because I’m a mean mama who doesn’t want them to get into all the stuff that gets on the floor. I try to make up for it by taking them on many daily walks.

September 8, 2012 - 11:34 pm

LoriKae - Hello

Greetings from DuPont, WA
We have three furry babies-a Yorkie named Abby, a dapple dashound named Lily and a chocolate dashound named Hershey. They are all fabric lovers and adore spools of ribbon too. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new line. :)

September 9, 2012 - 12:04 am

Sharon Whelan - Hi Anne! I live in Dana Point, California and have owned snow dogs in the past…Siberian Huskies and a Malamute. We hope to get another dog to take to Mammoth this winter. But for now, I am in charge of November Fest, the major annual fundraiser for Surfside Quilters Guild (San Clemente, CA.). I think a quilt made using the free doll quilt pattern you are providing on your website will be PERFECT for the 18″ dolls a member has donated for the fundraiser. What little girl wouldn’t be THRILLED if her mom or grandmother bid on such a treasure and WON? Your fabrics, patterns and creations are SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for your wonderful blog. Hope your family is doing well! Discovery Bay looks like a beautiful respite from a busy world…ENJOY!

September 9, 2012 - 12:25 am

Ellen - Hi Anne I live in the Gold Coast hinterland in Queensland in Australia. My hubby & I have two dogs Buddy & Milly (really two extra children). We also have six chickens – white spot, marg, madge, matilda, molly and miffy. Thanks for the gorgeous pattern and the chance to win.

September 9, 2012 - 12:26 am

Marsha Smith - Hello Anne and Chelsea ( and, where are the cats?). I live in Fair Oaks, CA, about 1 1/2 hr drive from you. We are almost neighbors! Yeah right…like you there is farmland/orchards with an abundance of local fresh produce. I have a pet or four to introduce: Zak, our traffic stopping border collie, who loves to leap up and hang from branches in the trees out front; Mr. Bigglesworth (because he was such a homely kitten) is siamese and maine coon, who at his heaviest weighed about 24 lbs, but he’s a big cuddle cat who loves everyone; Abbee is MY cat, a very, very vocal tortie calico with a nose for trouble; lastly, Freebie is our pied cockatiel who sits a top his cage saying “Here kitty kitty. Come here right now kitty!” (he likes to live dangerously).

September 9, 2012 - 12:33 am

Lynn - I’m in love with Chelsea…but perhaps we should keep that our little secret, because I wouldn’t want MY kids to get jealous…there’s Magnolia Blossom, our 11yr old “9-Patch”. She goes to work every day with us – she’s our “greeter” and baby sitter (for kids and husbands) at our quilt shop. Each night she returns to her Florida home to spend her evenings with the rest of the ‘family’…Willy, Tippy, Midnite, Soxie-One-Eye, Marvin, Jaxson and Mia…they are ‘felines’…Magnolia is a ‘dog’ (but don’t tell her that – I really don’t think she has a clue!).

September 9, 2012 - 1:05 am

sandyb - I live in a tiny town in central New York State. My pet is our kitty named Charlie who loved to cat his ball in mid air with his paws and put it in his mouth before he is back on the floor – I know, cool huh. We are trying to teach him more tricks. He is almost six months old and he is the “coolest cat”. We used to have lots of dogs but we lost our Emily at the age of 15 in April. She was last of 40 years of having many dogs at once. We were so heart broken. We decided to get Charlie and he is awesome.

Love Chelsea. Love the fabric.

My daughter and I used to raise show rabbits and I still have some netherland dwarfs with a friend. I just love bunnies. they are very smart too.

Thank you

September 9, 2012 - 1:09 am

Sally - Chelsea is so sweet, I am very jealous as I would love to have a dog but working full time away from home each day it wouldn’t be fair. So instead I have pets that can get along okay without me during the day: I have 2 bunnies (Priscilla & Penny) 2 Tortoises (Alfie & Twink) and 8 hens( Maude, Doris, Alice, Mary, Valerie, Violet, Annie & Diddy – they are all named after female relatives who are no longer with us). I live in Essex in the UK.
The Windsor Lane fabric is gorgeous – thanks for the chance to win. :)

September 9, 2012 - 1:15 am

Natalie - I from Townsville, in sunny North Queensland, Australia. I’m currently studying to be a vet so I don’t think I would be able to survive without having pets. I have a Border Collie called Jaspa and two black kitties Ebony and Minnie (short for Mignon). Thanks for the giveaway!

September 9, 2012 - 1:20 am

Lesley - Hi Anne I live at Charlestown a suburb of Newcastle in New South Wales Australia. A wonderful place to live, we are about a 2 hour drive north of Sydney and Newcastle is a very busy coal loading port and has always been known as an industrial town. My pet cat was a beautiful longhaired 57 varieties (part chinchilla) moggie called Misty, my baby who sadly past away recently after 20 years 6 months and 3 weeks as my beloved companion who always thought she was a human , she is very sadly missed. I have been following your site for approx 5 years and this is the first time I have entered one of your giveaways.
Thank you for your patterns over the years

We’re nestled about half way between Daytona Beach and Orlando. I have two little Boston Terriers named Boozer and Abbey. We also have our grandpuppy Finny over for sleepovers often. Soon will have a new grand puppy Scarlet, also a Boston Terrier. My husband laughs we are turning into one of those dog people!! My little rascals share my sewing room with me and sleep under my feet (to big to fit in a drawer) Abbey loves to roll in the sewing bits that fall to the floor. Love all your designs, look forward to hearing from you soon!

margaret - I live in Garsfontein, a suburb in the east of Pretoria, South Africa, in a home we built in 1979. We have the best weather (in my opinion) in South Africa, with warm summers and mild winters. I’ve had a few pets in my life – a black cat called Cat, a Ridgeback cross called Rags, a stray Fox Terrier who stayed 6 months whom we called Muddy Buddy as he arrived all muddy from the river at the bottom of our property, then a Maltese called Titch, and one of her offspring, called Scruffy. No pets at the moment, though.

Vickie - Hi Anne, Please thank Chelsea for the tour of your hometown and tell her that I think it is a beautiful town. Did you ever find her mouse ? My husband I live in Comanche, Texas with 3 little dogs. First there’s Titus. He is our wiener grand-dog. He is attached at the hip to my husband (isn’t it funny how a lot of big ole tough guys have little lap dogs )! Next are (my) two. Corky the corgi, he’s the ranch foreman. Everything that goes on around this ranch must first be “approved” by him. And then there’s Little Sissy, our newest addition. A 6 month old corgi who’s role in life at this point is being a pest to the other two, but her Mom thinks it’s cute.

Baby kitties are Mittens and Zous. We also have a horse on our property named Noble and a pony named Bart. We can’t seem to get enough of those guys either! We love all our creatures, even the toads!

Anne, you are such a gift to us. You are truly my inspiration to creating and quiltling. I also have a special love for bunnies and I LOVE pink!!!! Your Singer Featherweight is beyond dreamy :)

Thank you Anne for sharing all that you do with us!

September 9, 2012 - 6:53 am

Linda Sapp - Good Morning. I live in Cross Lanes, a suburb of Charleston, WV. We have 2 adorable old english sheep dogs named Rosebud and Wizard. We’ve sent two other OES to the Rainbow Bridge named Daisy and Lily. As you can see, I love flowers and I love my sheepdogs so they have all been named after beautiful flowers. Wizard is the only exception. He is adopted (with much love) and quite a different character. He has been quite a challenge to both of us but is a funny, lovable pet. We just made the trip to and from Marblehead, MA and they were quite the center of attention everywhere we went. One gentleman even told my husband “Boy! You must be the luckiest man alive to have these two!” We think so. And the one grandson was terrified of them when we arrived but by that evening they were great buddies. When we left he asked his mother “When will Wizard be back?” You see, Wizard came from a family of 3 small children and really loves to play with them. The other one is more motherly, like Nana in Peter Pan. She’s my guardian angel and won’t leave my side much like your Chelsea. I love animals of all kinds. They are very special to me.

Sharon - I live in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. We have two grand dogs, Tank and Deuce(Boxers). But non could compare to a sweet blue budgie we enjoyed for 13 yrs, by the name of Petie. He would kiss, talk,dance and click his beak, play cards and drop them off the edge of the table and look down and laugh(mocked my laugh). Petie would fly up to my craft room from downstairs and sit on the handle of my sewing machine while I sewed. He would try to catch the thread with his feet or beak as it whizzed by, and to my dislike he especially like to watch the needle on the sewing machine go up and down.

New customers that come the first time to drop off their quilts ( I’m a long arm quilter) are sometimes cautious at the door but anyone who’s been here once, knows he’s all bark and nothing else. He is getting old now but he’s still as loud a barker as ever. The fabrics are beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win

Your patterns have also inspired me to get back to my first love of embroidery; it’s the perfect compliment to a quilt. :) I’d finish my sewing projects more quickly if my 3 Jack Russell Terriers didn’t demand, oops!, I mean, deserve, so much of my attention! The boys are Jasper (15 ys.) and Jock (3 ys.), and my girl, who rules this domain, is Jemma (11 ys.).

We liive in central Louisiana , out in the country with deer and other creatures. My husband and I have 2 very special pets. My little grandaughter was given a bassett hound about 4 yrs ago, shortly after my husband had very unexpected quadruple by-pass surgery. When he came home from the hospital, of course, Jim fell in love with the little puppy and with nap with it on his chest in the recliner. This was shortly before Father’s Day, so I decided to get his own bassett. After much searching locally and on the internet, My 3 grandaughters and I drove round trip about 400 miles to bring Sugar home. And all without Jim knowing where I was that day. lol So thrilled when we came home and one of the girls just laid her down in his lap. She still wants to sit in anyone’s lap who will hold that 50lb. dog.
My special dog is , Louie, a Schiz-tzu, and so sweet and cuddly. He is 8 yrs. old and loves to get on top of the new quilts when I am working on them. He is very special to me because he can sense when my blood sugar drops and begans to bark at me and nudges me to move around. Then I realize that something is wrong and will check it . Generally, Louie is on target. One time , I was really out of it, he kept licking my face and bumping my head until I came to and was able to call for help. How special our pets are to us. Thanks for so many great patterns.

Cocoa was the first and he was cinnamon I also had Little Bit his puppy (poodle/pomeranian accident) during his life. When they were gone my son thought I really needed another so he got me Rascal. A jet black pom. He was a mess. This time too another dos came into our life, Lacy a Shih tzu that someone needed a home for. Both times the second dog passed then the pom shortly after. But 15 years with each was great. No dogs now.

Jerona Williams - Hi,
I live in Houston, Texas and I have one “spoiled rotten black cocker spaniel” named Midnight III aka “Nightmare”. He is actually my third black cocker spaniel and “yes” they were all named “Midnight”!
I recieved the first when I was about seven from my Godparents in NY. The second from a “exbeau” . When Midnight II passed after “IKE” I had pretty much made up my mind that I would not get another dog. Howsomeever, the “exbeau” told me he had a puppy for me if I wanted another one. So, I went over to his house and fell in love, (with the dog, not the exbeau). The rest is history. I love all of your work and have made several of your patterns. In closing, Midnight III and I would love to win some of your beautiful fabric :)!

Love the Bay Area…that is where my family is from so nice to see where Discovery Bay is. My mom grew up in Sebastapol.

Amy Roth - What a cute post! Chelsea looks like she had a lot of fun visiting all those places! We live in a rural area, too, in west central Illinois (Galesburg) and we have one lab/coonhound mix female name Flash. She’s a real sweetheart with the kids!

CindyC - I live in Emory, TX and we have one special border collie/brittany spaniel named Annie. When Annie first arrived (just over a year ago), she was drawn to the fabric in my studio. Anything on the floor would disappear and re-appear in the house under a pillow or beside the chair. I had to teach her not to rip the batting off of the roll (I need it to place in the quilts without holes in it). She has out grown some of the earlier tendencies, but occassionally has a set back. Thanks for the bundle offer, I hope I win.

Missie - I’m in Urbandale, Iowa for now. My little buddy is Ginger. She is a golden retriever mix and looks like a mini Golden. She’s my buddy and follows me everywhere, working in the office, down to the sewing room, across the room, etc! She can’t hear these days and doesn’t want to miss any fun, so she is at my feet all day, which is a great thing if you ask me! It’s great to be loved!

September 13, 2012 - 6:44 am

Diane Beckler - I’m Diane from Tiffin, IA. We have a wonderful 9 year old male Pomeranian named Teddy Bear. He’s just that, sooo sweet and cuddly and loves it if I take him everywhere I go. We also have a 3 year old long haired black cat named Ruckus. He used to live at our business, however a recent serious injury caused the need to keep him at home to rehab and he’s never left. I found quickly that kitties love sewing rooms! Teddy’s not a huge fan of his new roommate but he’s getting better. Meanwhile Ruckus’ old roommate, Kiwi, an 11 year old quaker parrot is really confused! She was taught as a joke before Ruckus to say “Where’s the kitty?”, “Meow, meow”, and “Here kitty kitty!” Then there was a kitty and kitty would sleep on the top of her cage. We later found after Teddy was spending time at the shop that she would bark like the dog. Now she’s a bit lonely as they’re all in the house without her. But she’ll still tell you you’re silly or that she’s spoiled and then laugh at herself. Or even ask you if you want to cuddle.
Thank you for the bundle offer. The fabric is gorgeous!

E - my home away from home is just down the river in a place called Wetherbee Lake. I met my husband there and we make a trip to discovery Bay about once a year. We used to go down Grantline but they have blocked that off so we come by way of the Deep Water Channel and Stockton. I met my husband at this special place 54 years ago when i was 12 and he was 15. We grew up with a Huck Finn lifestyle meandering along the river. We raised 4 kids along the river and now have 5 grandsons we are introducing to this special place. In our 45 years of marriage we have had two dogs, Buppies lived for 16 years and Buster for 17. We are babysitting our grand-dog, a beautiful golden retriever named KNOX. thank you for your lovely website, tutorials, great blog and free patterns. you have found your gift! E

Lisa Lilly - Love the tour of your hometown, and of course Chelsea. I had 2 dogs, Scruffy & Bear and 2 cats Tegan & Lizzie, unfortunately I have sadly lost all of them, the oldest one being 19, so it is fun to see your pictures of your Chelsea, helps ease the pain a little.
Thanks for everything you do and keep inspiring all of us.

Liz Grundvig - Hi! That bundle of fabric… it’s given me a longing. That’s never happened before. Anyhoo, something peaceful and homey about it! Beautiful!

Bakersfield, CA is where I live, where I grew up, and I’m glad we finally moved back so that I got to raise our three kids here. The week we moved back our almost-human cat that was so much fun and loved to ‘hug’ got bitten by a baby bat and had to be put to sleep. I cried so hard when they came to pick her up, that I couldn’t even talk. But now, I have a German Shepherd Coyote. Yep, mom was the Shepherd, dad was a wild one!!! Mika is a love bug!!!! :)

Susan K - I live in Coppell Texas – come on by! I sew/quilt with a kitty companion named Cocoa. He’s white with apricot tabby markings. He has a heart on his back. It wouldn’t be any fun without a kitty – they have to give the “Kitty Seal of Approval” – to answer the question “Is it nap-worthy?”!

Angie Spendlove - I live in West Jordan, Utah – which is a suburb of Salt Lake City. I had a dog for 16 years, his name was Klondike, but just last week we got really sick and we had to put him down :( He was a good dog, very partial to our family. I’m hoping that’s a nice way to say that he didn’t really like anybody but his family. Beautiful fabric, thanks for the chance.

Cobbler on the trees

The weather was hot but no one seemed to mind.  The fruit was ripe for the picking and waiting for us.  The area I live in is known for growing fruits and vegetables.  At this time of year people come from all over to participate in the harvest. Since I live in this area I […]

mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I’m so glad you enjoyed your time with your family and the precious days with your beautiful little granddaughter. There is nothing like it!
We are picking strawberries and raspberries, and the blueberries are beginning to ripen, too. I can’t wait to make some cobblers and jams, if we don’t eat it all before it has time to be cooked! Our little granddaughters want to come and pick fruit every day :) Later will come the canteloupe, and anyone who’s ever tasted canteloupe fresh from the garden will confirm that it is beyond compare. Then later still….apples. We have almost an orchard now, well, a small orchard :)

June 18, 2012 - 6:09 pm

Michelle B - I could almost SMELL those ripe peaches! Wish they’d hurry up and invite smellivision! U-pick fruit is pretty much a thing of the past up here. Too bad because there’s nothing quite like a sun-ripened peach fresh from the tree, fuzz and all!
