Garden 7/30/2016

 Hi friends!
The corn and squash is finished!
We planted one half of a row of squash and we have run out of people to give it to so  glad of that.
Still getting some cucumbers enough to put up some more pickles this week. That more than enough pickles for us. Hubby cut the grass in the garden but it's about the only place it grows , where we water.
Tomato's went from a full basket to two are three a night , hope that it will get better.
Put up a quart of pepper sauce today .
Getting lot of bell peppers and sweet banana peppers.  Orka will produce until frost.

Hi friends!
This needs something else !
I did work on the star, found a better needle that made it a little easier.
I did get that fabric sewed in the middle but i am still going to have to do some more work on it, maybe this weekend i will get it sandwiched.
Felt lousy yesterday so didn't get much done !
The thread order i sent off to connecting threads came this morning. They had some Christmas fabric for 2 dollars and 79 cent a yard so i got some.
That will last me a long time.
 Plus i put up some more pickles.
I keep saying that will be the last batch but i can't throw veggies out that  are good.
We got a little rain yesterday but just the edge of cloud that doesn't any  good. The wind is always blowing and dries it up in minutes.
Have a great weekend

Hand stitching!

Hi friends!
Trying to do a block the old fashioned way!
Not doing to good at it.
I started out thinking i would do a star but had no way to anchor the points so i could sew it.
Then decided i would do one like our teacher showed us.
This is it!  Don't think i am cut out to do hand sewing blocks. But i want give up!

Yesterday i washed some fabric to add to the backing and the first was the color catcher was wine colored. This is the second wash!
The fabric is brown!  How did it do this?
I just gave up! Decided i would use up some grey it will be close to the same color as the sheet.
Just had a weird day when nothing really went well.
Hope your day is better.

Backing and a baby

Hi friends!
I think i am going to use this for most of the backing. I am thinking about cutting it into and putting a line of blocks in the middle.
That should make it wide enough for a backing .
I laid it on top and i still liked a good 10 inches for it to be wide enough.
Our little Shania!
She has really grown. She was  born in Jan. All of her head full of hair has disappeared. Just look at those fat legs! Just want to hug her.
We are blessed with g-gs!
Have a good one

Hi friends!
That's it! One top finished , but i will have to sew together some fabric for the backing. I am still digging for that.
It's a good size with fall on the sides.
I ironed it good and it's ready for sandwiching.
Tommy cut the yard that just had to be cut last night and cut in the garden.
My peace Lily has been blooming all summer. It has never bloomed like that before. It must like this heat!
Boy we don't!
We wait until the sun goes down to work in the garden or any thing outside.
So not a lot getting done.
Have a good one

Our weekend

Hi friends !
I decided to use up the rest of the layer cake to add a small border.
I just cut two inch strips and sewed ends together.
I had plenty enough to do it.
I think a small white border would look good now.
Have no idea what to bind it with but i have plenty of time to think about it.
Haven't sandwiched it yet. Today i will add that white border and make some backing.
I made up some more Salsa Sat.
This batch will be a little hotter.
I may make up one more.

My Aunt Geneva's Quilt

Hi friends!
I cut yesterday for My sweet aunt Geneva's quilt.
This is the layer cake i am using. It's Summer Song " by Riley Blake.
Each print  has two to make 42   10 inch squares.
This is the top row, hoping to work some more on it today, Thanks Colette . She sent me the pattern!
She blogs   HERE  She is making one to!
It rained yesterday, we had been getting slow rains that didn't last long and sprinkles that just moved through real fast. We got a good 15 minute pour!

Some good rain for the garden. Our tomato's have slowed down but if it would do this a while they would perk up again.
Only lasted 15 minutes!
Have a good day
