Barb Sackel – Rose Cottage Quilting

Musings of a quilting enthusiast

Summer is here at Sackel Park

July22

So the Dog Days of Summer are upon us. I was thinking that this morning when I was watching my dog Murphy sleep. It’s just too hot to do anything else. I have turned in another submission to Blank Quilting for my next fabric line. My latest fabric line for Blank is almost ready, I’ll post pictures as soon as I get them. And I have started to send in patterns to magazines that showcase my fabrics line…..but  when all is said and done, I have just enjoyed sitting on my swing and reading. Did I mention that I have been watching my weeds grow???

So here are some pictures of my gardens….weeds and all. Who can deny the growth of weeds when in the end they bloom into flowers as well?

I had some photos from this Spring when I was working in the beds. And I just took some new photos so you can see what the beds look like now.  It’s amazing what water and sun can do!

This garden bed is in my front yard.

Bird Diner

My diner for the birds is coming along well. The deer keep coming up from the woods and cleaning me out of seed….but then again…what am I to do???

This is what my “diner” looked like in the Spring.

And here is the new and improved diner under construction. We decided to put pavers around it to keep the bird seed from sprouting in the lawn!
