For Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will do more work on my Stain Glass Stars hand quilting. I am actually about half way done with it already – keep in mind this wall hanging is about 16 x 32? something like that.
The area I was working on last night is mainly the rope border – I need to move the hoop one more time to finish up the corner then will be moving to the blue star. I am linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework today if you want to go over and see the quilts that are linking up.
I have all the pieces (I think) cut out and stitched for Primary Colors but I do need to make 3 large 24 inch units still and then figure out placement and stitch the smaller units for the sides. Some of these stacks had already been done and the rest done last night.
More tomatoes picked, a couple green that fall off and I found on the ground from the rain storm yesterday morning – and some that are a little orange and need to ripen. The Roma’s are very slow this summer and as soon as they are getting even a hint of orange I pick them as if I leave them they are getting bottom rot – I haven’t a clue what causes that but I have found that if I pick them before it starts and let them ripen in the house they are just fine. I have a lot of green tomatoes on the bushes but a lot of the garden is beginning to dry up as it always does in August – fall is coming- kids go back to school in our area on Monday. As soon as I can I will probably make another batch of sauce – I use sauce more than chopped tomatoes so that is why I am making all my tomatoes into it this year. If I do not have enough garden tomatoes for the recipe I add a can or two of canned tomatoes to the crockpot to make up the difference.
