  3. The smell of a good barbeque makes me think of summer time. Even on a cold winter night, when I get that rare chance to smell a BBQ, I will instantly dream of summertime.

    Your fabrics are beautiful. They'd make a delightful charity quilt for children. I'd love to test out some new patterns with them and donate the finished quilt to a good charity program for kids. But whomever is the winner, I'm sure they'll enjoy them and it is nice that you are donating them.

  36. Since it is almost always summer where I live, I will have to remember back to when I was a youngster in VA! The smell of new mowed hay and honeysuckle are the first two things that come to mind. Of course, the smell of the new mowed hay meant a bit of work but what the heck, I was young!

  56. Summer.

    The Sum of mer...maids.
    MAIDS! Lots of other people doing my housework while I swim...salaciously,
    in the pool (I don't even know HOW to swim salaciously, but this is besides the point...)so I'm swimming salaciously, and my lover (he's yummy and slave-like... yet intelligent and gentle, of course)hands me a drink - on the rocks, freshly squeezed lemon, alcoholic and yet miraculously fat free... which brings me to how hot I look in my bikini (yeah right!)... Ah summer. Perhaps I should have gone with the simple blue sky, the intense increasing heat and sticky sweat followed by a delicious afternoon rainfall leaving the air all clean and sweet smelling, the ground steaming, and my still salaciously hot body perfectly content...

    :)

  98. Wow!!! I love all those fabrics! I fell in love with them and then got distracted by your blog and read every post on the front page before remembering that I was trying to find the spot where I needed to subscribe to your blog. You can tell you have a huge yard (and very green grass) when you can lay out all those unfinished quilts and your yard still has more grassy areas. I hope you have a riding lawn mower. I would love to win all those gorgeous fabrics. Please count me in. I live in Texas so I can't say the heat makes me think of summer because it's hot here 9 months out of the year. It's got to be the lightning bugs. Lazily and slowly flying around flashing their glowy bottoms. I never get tired of seeing them in my yard or while walking through the park when the sun starts to go down.
