yard life, garden, the United States quilt

1 - Dragonflies are back! So far it's a bright blue species. There are at least 2 red species that Mom loves to see, they're not back yet though.

2 - all the bird babies are growing up! The juvenile male cardinal is gradually getting redder in color.

3 - the BBWD are making so much noise in the mornings! They're so fun to listen to ^_^

4 - so many green tomatoes! We've all agreed that next year, more Cherokees. Maybe all Cherokees. The hybrids are great looking supermarket-style tomatoes, and they do have better taste/texture than the supermarket ones, but they aren't a patch on the Cherokees. I suggested we give the hybrids to my brother and his wife :P

Okay, I got back to the state blocks today. I have 22 completed blocks out of 28. 28 is not a happy grid number for me, but it may be what I have to deal with unless I make some trips to new states this week.

The states I have left to make blocks for: CA, NY, OK, CT, WI, MS

States I have not yet visited (airports/driving through doesn't count): CO, GA, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MI, MN, NE, NH, ND, OH, OR, RI, SC, SD, TN, VT, VA, WA, WV

For those of you doing the math at home: I'm also counting DC and USVI since I've been to those.

OK and CT are when Toly was young, and he doesn't remember much, and trying to get info from his mom is like casting a bottle into the ocean and hoping to hear something back someday.

CA/NY: I have ideas for how to make my own designs because the ones available just don't work for me.

MS: Same problem, no solution yet. I've been to NE MS and that's not, y'know, swampy or riverine or such.

WI: I was there 3 years in a row for GenCon in Milwaukee. WI is known for cheese and cows to everyone else. I could make a big cheese-colored d20? idk. Or I could go the "field of dairy cattle" route.

That said, Louisiana is, what, a full day's trip to get there and back, so maybe if there was a weekend reason to go to Louisiana? But I don't know what that would be. I mean, if I'm going on a weekend trip to a place, I'd better have a reason to justify the expense.

World Map quilt: Will probably work on this tomorrow since I'm working on the redesigns for those other blocks and that's going to take a little time.
