Isn't it funny how life always seem to consume our time. We again have been very busy lately. I have been putting up beans, and corn. I didn't get a chance to do that last year with the twins coming home from the NICU. My time was consumed with taking care of preemies. We are very excited to be getting our canning and freezing done this year! We put up 68 pint jars of bush beans. I only got 16 3c bags of corn done so far..but much more to do! We will be working on tomatoes and peaches and salsa as those things start coming in. I did put a few pics of a few of my projects I have been working on. Haven't had a chance to take alot of pics as planned. I have been sewing away on culottes for the girls to have for church camp next week. Our little Liberty loved them so much I made her a pair too. The older girls have a split skirt pattern I am making which is wonderful! Looks just like a skirt!! Liberty's is full and long and again looks like an adorable skirt. I made the quilt below for some dear friends of ours at church who are expecting their first little one next month. Lord willing I will get more pics posted later this week (no promises though, lol). Praying everyone is enjoying the summer months. I can tell you I enjoy the fall months much better when the weather isn't so hot!
I have a urgent prayer request I would like all my readers to help me pray over. I had a friend call yesterday and let me know a friend of theirs just got news that their unborn twin babies have TTTS. This is the same thing our family went thru with Beatrice and Olivia. I ask everyone to please pray for them! They will be heading to Cincinnati soon for testing and probably surgery like we had. This is the Shook family... I so covet your prayers for them at this time!

Aren't these the most delicious fabrics!
