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 thirty-six of that project.

This quilt block shows corner plot. In the bottom right corner is a brown piece of ground with a large orange mushroom looking thing on top with a sign on it that reads, "Playground."

A playground on the corner! Isn’t that fortunate for Paula and Shawn? Just two doors down, past the cute dog is a playground.

There is an area for older kids (the over 8 set). But, the biggest part caters to the under 8 crowds. There are tiny climbers, a sandbox,  swings, and slides all made for the youngest humans.

One of my grandchildren, we’ll call Farmhand 1, referred to all people as humans when he was little (age 1-6). He was so into animals and talked about them with all the proper names that I guess it seemed natural to call all people humans. One day when they still lived in the city a city worker came to their door to tell them he was going to paint the curb.

Farmhand 1 answered the door and yelled to his mother, “There is a male human here to see you, mom”. I laughed a long time when I heard this because I could imagine the guy going home and telling his wife about the weird kid he met that day.
