Hi friends!
I got through with the quilting yesterday and sewed the binding down.
Trimmed the sides and put it on the couch so when i had a minute i could work on the binding.
I used the blue dotted to make a binding and i got a smidgen done yesterday!
Earlier i put up soup.
Seven quarts added! Then
i did pickles!
Five quarts plus one pint!
We may have enough made of both. Going to have to count to be sure.
But we have tomato's coming out our ears!

This is out basket of ripes!
We have two baskets like this of not yet ripe ones.
We have been giving them away as fast as we can.. Of course no one likes green ones unless they are frying green tomato's.
Maybe i will get more sewing done today since their is not enough ripe ones to put up after giving to the neighbors.
Have a good one
Quilt Happy

DO you like Fried Green Tomatoes? said...

Wow You finished quilting a huge quilt, and I got about 2 passes on my small quilt. I may be about 1/3 of the way done quilting it. And then you canned too? I need some of your pep.

your garden is certainly producing some wonderful eats and you are good bottling them, quilt looking good to I enjoy hand stitching the binding so relaxing to do

I can't help thinking how much you will enjoy in the winter all the items you canned. Spending days at the hospital have put my stitching and gardening on hold, but I had to take a moment to catch up with my blog buddies.

Have a great weekend.
