Summer idleness

We are having a wonderful and slow summer. I find my creative juices tend to take a rest during the refreshing yet busy time that July is all about. June was a little different - here's one result of that:

A small quilt that first was intended as a pillowcover. It was quilted when I was pregnant with our first child - seven years ago (yikes).

I free hand quilted the borders and setting diamonds. It was a lot of fun. I decided on circles in the borders, and suddenly one circle turned out as two smaller ones. And then it sort of evolved into a Volkswagen... Or maybe it's only my eyes that can see it...

We just came home from a lovely week in the Swedish countryside. This was our kitchen window view.
