It’s getting bigger!!
I especially like how these two blocks turned out.
The instructions call for one more row… but I’m thinking three more rows.
My loquat tree is heavy with fruit and the birds and squirrels are enjoying it. Loquats are an interesting fruit. The flowers appear in the autumn or early winter, and the fruits are ripe in late winter or early spring. The loquat is similar to its distant relative, the apple, and are good for making pies, tarts and crumbles. The fruit is about the size of a ping-pong ball. They have a somewhat tough skin which needs to be peeled and then there is a pit about the size of a marble.
So, think about it… take away the skin, take away the marble sized pit and what do you have left? NOT MUCH! It takes an awful lot of work to collect enough of the fruit for even a small Loquat Tart.
This year I have told the birds and squirrels that they can have the whole harvest. I know they will enjoy it!
Kay over at Out of the Basement pieced this Lily Basket top. It is such a delight to have it on my quilting table as it is so beautiful! Enjoy the eye candy!
The Girl Scout organization is such a wonderful thing. My daughter gets the opportunity to do lots of things she otherwise would not get to do if she were not a Girl Scout. And the interaction with the other girls and leaders is so good for her. My sincerest thanks to all involved with Girl Scouts!
We had a blast horseback riding with her troop this week!
