Yesterday I just didn’t do a lot of quilting. I got a little more done on Wagon’s West on Thursday night but not a lot – I really need to slow it down for a week for quilting as the fingertips have gotten bad again and need to heal – so no quilting Friday night and maybe not all weekend. I do need to get the binding machine stitched to Winter Wonderland and then spend a week with the hand stitching.
A cute quilt to make with scraps – these are all nine patch blocks set on point – a very cute quilt –if you do not have the scraps or have a hard time deciding how to use your scraps – you can get the kit: Marcus Fabrics Paula Barnes Companions Fabric & Four Square Pattern Quilt Kit from Craftsy on sale for $107.97 – this kit includes about 12 yards of fabric and the paper pattern that would be sent with the fabric. I think I will be making this one. Although I should probably work on the flannel quilt kit I got a couple months ago first! or maybe this, or maybe that – all the patterns that run through my head LOL – how ever in the world to decide what to make next when I already have so many in the works and more to get started on!
We have not had a ton of rain but we have been cooler than usual so what rain we had has not dried out and we have some mud here and there in the yard and plenty of mushrooms growing – I liked this one so slender and the top is neat.
Wild Black Eyed Susan’s growing in one area next to the woods – letting them grow wild and not cutting the grass in this area.
The same area from a distance.
Sweet Mint ready to dry for tea – I have a ton of it so I’m drying some and well store in a mason jar in the pantry cupboard in the dark so it will stay good all winter. Well have to do this in two batches as you need a little space between the leafs so it will dry good. I let the dehydrator go over night and then will put in this second amount that is on the towel. I will need to start doing each of the mints in turn the mint is the largest of the plants. I will have plenty fresh to use all summer as well.
Look how big some of these leafs are.
Rain is leaving the forecast and it looks like it is going to be a hot week coming up around 90 every day – I will run out to my brother’s farm one day in the coming week in the morning to get blueberries and hope for a cool morning!
