Some fun Summer Reading

I wish I had time to make more than this one, but I’m glad I at least have something to contribute.  This is such a fun block!  I’m packing up some summer reading for vacation next week.  I currently love Louise Perry’s mysteries.  Have a good summer, everyone. Kathie...

One of the charities I sew for each year is Meals on Wheels.  They like to include a little something along with the meals in December, and my quilt guild...
