.....on a country road complete with lovely properties and wild turkeys crossing our path. I wish the pic of the turkeys came out. Have I mentioned the crap camera?
Oh, and these photos - TWO WEEKS OLD.
Yes this means what you think it means: FALL is here.
Spotted here> more bad news.
Spotted in my backyard....
It is shall we say an inappropriate time to be starting
anything a quilt but the spirit moved me so I got some scraps and hauled the sewing machine upstairs and had a go at a wonky log cabin square. Log cabin quilts are favourites of mine and I always said my first quilt would be a Log cabin of some incarnation.
Getting the sewing machine out of hiding involved unscrewing it from it's cabinet as it was too heavy to lug the whole thing upstairs by myself and then using the knee pedal between my knees and pushing the lever against a chair seat under the kitchen table. Determined or just crazy? - You be the judge.
Things I have learned from this experience :
I don't like quilted pillows. It's a quilt or nothing.
My inner thighs are stronger than I thought.
Did I get this quilting business out of my system for now?
I'm afraid not.
Also spotted on the couch..
The Dreaded Clapotis. I will finish this scarf before it finishes me. Laceweight...curse, curse...mutter, mutter....
Spotted in the kitchen...
Harvesting. Every year I buy a big basket of red peppers and roast them and freeze them. This year I made an old favourite as well.
Red Pepper Jelly. So good with crackers and cream cheese..and gift giving.
Recipe here. (Warning: I had to boil a lot longer than stated in this recipe for a thick jelly.)
