Hop to It and tomatoes

Mary's quilt is from the book by Edyta Sitar, Hop to It.  It's really cute and Mary did a wonderful job on it, as usual.  She has entered it in the Kansas State Fair - last year she won the big over-all Grand Champion award for her Dear Jane quilt (which was hand quilted).  I think she is an over-achiever!

I can't seem to quilt anything without a few feathers.

I tried something different in the border.

It cooled down finally and my tomatoes are making a comeback.  After producing about 8 tomatoes, they refused to do anything once it got over 100 degrees for so long. (Hey - I felt the same way!)  The bush is huge and healthy and now that it has cooled down, it is covered with blossoms (and grasshoppers, we'll see who wins)  I'm hoping for some fall tomatoes!

Here is the bush last June.

Here it is now - about 7 feet tall.
