A little of this, a little of that

I worked on a lot of different things today.  The morning was spent quilting Melissa and adding the binding.  As soon as that is sewn down, I’ll show a picture.


This afternoon, I went to my hand work box and added the top and bottom of row three of Dear Jane.  I still have three blocks to applique, quilt and bind for the side pieces of that row.  Then on to the fourth row.





The weather was nice so Miss Molly and I went out on the porch and sat on the swing.  I sewed down the binding of the mile a minute table topper.IMG_1418

When it became dark, I came inside and crocheted a row on the plastic bag.  I am doing much better with crocheting.  Maybe it’s not so hard after all.  I have some folding and organizing to do with the loads of plastic bags that I brought home with me yesterday. Then they will be ready to cut when I need them.

I need a small quilt for the raffle at the quilt show.  I’ve been looking for a pattern and found a picture that I had saved.  I’m not sure what the size of the quilt in the picture is, but I’m making it with 4″ blocks set on point.  I cut out some of the pieces and will sew some together tomorrow.

I had some donated summer squash and zucchini.  Also some cucumbers.  I sautéed the summer squash with garlic and basil for supper tonight. It was delicious.  I’ll have some zucchini tomorrow although I should shred some for the freezer.  Chocolate zucchini bread would be delicious in the winter.  My tomatoes are red, so I can have a salad with the cucumber and the lettuce that is in the refrigerator.  Summer is wonderful with the fresh vegetables and fruit.

Have a great day and happy quilting.

  1. Enjoy your emails very much, re the zucchini, I often spiraling mine and use as ‘spaghetti ‘ instead of pasta, just microwave for 5 minutes and healthy for you!


  2. Lucky you with home grown tomatoes! Drought here (Australia) and now enough water to grow my tomatoes, miss them big time
