It was a very busy day yesterday – I was canning – Green Tomato Relish – 7 pints. I decided my tomato plants were not going to get much more out of them, I have not had very many ripe in close to two weeks. The sun is not shinning very long on that area of the yard right now – so I pulled them all out and had a large amount of small green tomatoes and some medium size. I got some green bell peppers and red bell peppers, onions and the spices and got to work.This is what I ended up with. This is sweet relish it has sugar and vinegar in it. Chopping all those veggies took some time and I wasn’t done until almost 2 in the afternoon.
When I got done with that though I got busy on Love Entwined – I got two flowers done but I’m not satisfied with the centers – they are not even in the center so I think I will either add some embroidery – French Knots or tiny circles. I have two more of these to do on the opposite side – then I will decide what to do about the centers.
Wednesday night I got more of the quilting done on the Red and Green – almost to the point of cranking down the quilt again. A little more to do on the side border and I forgot to quilt on the leaves so I will roll that back slightly so I can work on the leaves.
On the Pinwheel quilt I have 9 or 10 blocks out of the 30 finished – a ways to go on this one, I haven’t been picking it up often.
I don’t English Paper Piece but I thought this little case looked so cute I thought I would pass it on for people to see. The blog is called “The Zen of Making” - I use hexies but not EPP but this sure is cute. I have a feeling I could make this and use it as a sewing case for something. Go to the link above for the instructions and see what it looks like when it is closed.
