How I got done with everything I wanted to do yesterday is beyond me – although I did skip exercising and that was ok because I got in 8,000+ steps anyhow. I did keep grabbing my eclipse glasses and would go in and out getting a view of its progress. We didn’t get the full eclipse but enough to satisfy me. Besides canning, sewing, a run to Wal-Mart for more jars & a new toaster, I also got the grass cut in the evening and more walls varnished in the sewing room – wow I’m tired too just thinking of it – and I had to run out to Mike’s work to pick him up because the truck wouldn’t start!! Which means I am without a car for a couple days I guess unless I play chauffeur and drive him back and forth so I have some wheels.
On Sunday night I got work done on the Handful of Scraps but didn’t get any of it done on Monday. Working on the 3rd row before I get started on the sides but I will need to baste more hexies before I get started on that.
The Morning Glories continue to open and close very quickly – barely open 12 hours I think.
More Marinara Sauce made.
Six racks of Oregano drying – when these racks are first loaded it looked like too much on them so a lot of drying was going on here the past 6 hours.
And some sewing was happening with the scrappy baskets – Fall Harvest quilt – all the side blocks will be cut down to half square triangle – I find it easier to just cut square and trim them later – the left side is the side with sewing going on – the longest strip was a big accident – I turned the pile of blocks by accident and all the baskets were sewn on upside down or sideways – something – because no matter if I turned it or what it wasn’t going to work so some ripping is going on. The first five rows are sewed together the next two the rows are ready to sew to those five and I will continuing taking the long row apart today and hopefully get it back together again at some point! Linking to Esther’s Quilt Blog today.
