Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day one hundred and eighty-seven of that project.

This quilt block shows a citrus tre. This is an orange tree with a tall brown trunk, and at the top many green leaves and five orange citrus fruits. The leaves and fruits are scattered around at the top of the tree.Each leaf has a light yellow stitching, and each orange has an offwhite stitching along with the trunk. This is all against a blue background.

Is it an orange tree, or tangerine? Maybe a California cutie.

Nothing is better to me than a sweet juicy “orange” citrus. Honestly, my mouth is watering writing this post!

My favorite orange is the Cara Cara orange. This year Asa brought home bags from Costco a few times and I enjoyed them so much. Every night I would eat two when I went home.

When I was a little girl my Grandmother would slice an orange in 1/4″ slices and cut them in half.

She would arrange them on a plate and sprinkle a little powdered sugar over the top for my snack. Sure made me feel special.

Farmhand 4 really likes “cuties”. He’s just turning 4 and can now peel his own.

However, last winter he would come into my room in the morning and because I slept on my side he was right at eye level to me. He’d tap my forehead with the cutie until I woke up so I could peel it for him.

I have been woken in much worse ways.
