Did you enjoy your day and have time to go through Craftsy Classes to see what they were like? If you did which classes did you like and think you want to see more of? I admit I had barely any time to look through them. I wish this free preview would have been on a day where I had more time. A lot of the quilting classes see to be aimed at beginners – I also look through the cooking classes sometimes and it seems the cake decorating classes are very popular.
We were busy yesterday clearing out some things from the sewing room so that I will have room to varnish the table tops – and I was busy moving things in the laundry area so the delivery guys can get the old washing machine out and put in place the new machine today.
Also I picked all the green tomatoes and have them in a basket and pulled the plants out – they were getting bug infested and looked so horrible – and I’m done with the garden if you know what I mean – it is September I’m ready for fall. I’ve canned about 25 pints of Marinara Sauce, had 2 quart size bags in the freezer which I used and one week I made 2 pints and put them in the refrigerator and used them that week. I know there were tomatoes in salads and sandwiches too and some went home with Melanie – overall I’m very satisfied with the tomato crop so I don’t mind that these are green and might not ripen – I’m not canning any more. Will they ripen? Don’t know I will leave them be for awhile and see what happens with them and use them as they do.
Yesterday in my sitting down time I was basting hexies. The can on the left is filling up – I want to get it full and then I will get back to the long rows to finish up the sides.
I will need to add more colors soon too and need to go through the storage box that I have the color pieces in – I have this full tin but I will need to refill it several more times. A couple of you have thought that I was almost done with the Handful of Scraps hexie quilt – these are 7/8 inch hexies – the quilt right now is only 50 x 60 about – long way to go. Linking up to Esther’s Quilt Blog today.
