Slow Sunday


I should add to this slow Sunday, being slow to blog.
I have thought off and on for the past couple weeks,  how I needed to write a post to blog. But that's as far as I would get, just thinking about it.
It's not that I don't have a subject or an event or a project I would love to share, it just that time would get away from me.
So for my slow Sunday I have been prepping my blocks for "Words to Live By". 
This a Primitive Gathering BOM


These are the two I have finished .




But that's not all, I have been doing today. We had a killing freeze Friday night so I had to pick all that was left on my bell peppers and tomato plants.  


So I've been busy getting the bell peppers cleaned and prepped to freeze or dehydrate. 
Then there's those pumpkins we have that we use to decorate that were not cut to make jack-o'-lanterns. I'm roasting those in the oven and putting them in the freezer to be used later for pies or soup
Just taking it easy, having a nice slow Sunday

  3. I have these patterns but have not done anything with them. You will have a beautiful quilt in the end.

  4. First of all, I agree 100% with the quote of William Morris! Then I find your wool applique blocks really nice!

  5. I freeze my peppers and just love being able to get some out when I need them. I just read recently that they are a very healthy food. Have fun stitching today!

  6. Some great stitching. Those peppers look delicious, perfect for the freezer. All I have left to harvest is leeks and beetroot.

  8. Wow, you have a lot of peppers. My pepper plant did very little this year. The blocks you are stitching are pretty. I love the fabric you are using.

  9. That's a lot of peppers! It must have been pumpkin baking day - I baked off a bunch of pie pumpkins and froze a bunch for later in the year. Beautiful blocks.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
