What's Going On

 Derby [R] & Julep [L] sunning in a favorite spot on the deck.  

 Our highest tide yesterday.  A few more inches and the water 
would have topped the dock.  
 You know it's fall when the Beauty Berry bush turns bright purple.
 The final row of 2-1/2" squares were added and this is
officially done.  I still have a box full of this size square
so you will probably see other quilts done in a similar style.
 The line-up for the 'Return to Sender' quilt pattern.
 I purchased a 'Jelly Roll' made by Moda from the Old Country Store 
in Lancaster specifically to make this quilt.  For those that don't know ...
Jelly Rolls are fabric cut into 2-1/2" strips [by 44"] and then rolled up in a 
jelly roll fashion.  Moda is one of the leading manufactures of
fabric today.  The cool thing about using a Jelly Roll is that all the
fabric colors and patterns blend nicely together which eliminates
{for me} a lot of time trying to figure out what goes with what.
 I had to make a few blocks for my 'Return to Sender' quilt.
In case you haven't figured it out the blocks look like mail
slots.  This pattern is easy & I can't wait to make more.
 Several months ago a new restaurant opened on the
main street in St. Michaels called "Mike & Eric's Front
Street Restaurant".  For some reason {mainly because
this restaurant isn't on the water and in summer we just
like to eat along the waters edge} ... we finally gave 
Front Street a try.  I have to say it was pretty darn 
good ... what I had for lunch as well as what I had
for dinner ... all in the same day.
 Wilson said these are the best fried green tomato's he's
had and when Wilson gives a compliment like this
well ... you know it's good!
I was still semi-full from the burger I had at lunch
so I ordered just the tomato bisque and it was to die for!
From what I understand the chief is a whiz at making soups.
We will go back to Front Street for sure.

  1. Now we can't get passed the fried green tomatoes as some of ours probably wont ripen now. Have to make some for ourselves. Have a serene and easy Sunday.
