I didn’t get much sewing done yesterday – I did run to the farmer’s market and stopped at the library’s bookmobile which was parked there – my daughter Melanie works on it so needed to say hi. There were some good looking tomatoes at the market – so I thought to get some to add to mine so I could have enough to can some and I got some peaches for jam. Oh and a jar of local honey – I always hear that you should try a spoonful of local honey a day for your allergies – some people swear by it and say you see an improvement – this honey is from a local farm about 3/4 mile from me so it is very local to me. I will try it and see what happens – one spoon a day – anyone every hear of this? I got the peach jam made and the tomatoes will be taken care of today. I have six racks of peppermint drying in the dehydrator and did 4 racks of sweet mint the other day – spearmint is next. After the market I ran over to Wal-Mart to buy another box of pint canning jars – I was starting to run low. I am storing the dried herbs in the jars too and putting them in the pantry cupboard where it stays dark most of the time I heard that is how you should store them.
I rolled Wagon’s West down and it is now at the half way point! 41 hours of quilting in it so far and a couple days over a month that I put it on the frame. I am linking to Lorna’s Sew Fresh Quilts and if you want to enter any of her give aways you still have time today – winners are announced tomorrow. I am also linking to Quilt Fabrication: Midweek Makers and My Quilt Infatuation.
Maybe I will have more to share tomorrow – yesterday was just a busy non-quilting day! Grass had to be cut in the evening as it was such a hot day, laundry, cleaning in the daytime – you know all that stuff quilters hate waste time on!
