Hoping to get back to quilting
Calista (oldest daughter with new baby) came over again and we canned 10 pints of dill pickles (that makes 100 in all!), 10 pints of salsa (that makes 16 in all) and 5 pints of dill relish. In addition, I've frozen okra and squash and made fresh spaghetti sauce.
So... A couple of weeks ago at guild meeting we had a program by a lady who heads up our local chapter of "Quilts of Valor". People all over this country are working to provide quilts to all our servicemen and women who have been injured in the war. I've known about it for a while, but haven't done anything about it. So I decided to make this block and pass it on to some friends of mine to add to it and see what we come up with. I still have to do the machine applique around the leaves and then I'm handing it off the Emma. I think she's already thinking about what she's going to add. So stay tuned on that one.
So let's see, (in no particular order of importance) at the top is a little x-block wall hanging that I made for a class sample (probably a year ago). It needs to be quilted, as does the wonky little green one that's below that and on top of the stack. Under that is a wallhanging that needs to have the applique finished and borders added.
The gardening has been fun, but I'm getting tired of it now and want to get back to my sewing. SOON!
Until next time...have fun with whatever you're doing.
