Just Like a Turtle

IImage result for slow and steady steady and slow that's the way i always go cartoon

That has been me today. 
And you know what, I loved it and did manage to accomplish so much more than I really planned on.

The list for To do's was....

  Read a little

Start another batch of Lime Pickles

Put binding on one of the flying geese lap quilts

This is the first of the two that I have been working on. 

I used the scraps I had leftover from the geese for the binding. 

And I was very lucky cause I had just enough to be able to bind the both, in fact I had less than 12" left.
It is so nice to get these done and in plenty of time for Christmas. But if you were to look it up it's only 116 days (from today).

The last thing was to make something new with zucchini's.

I'm doing that now, making a dessert pie but won't know how it turned out till later and I'll share that tomorrow.

Write my Mom

My mother lives in Kenai, Alaska and I try to keep her up to date on how her middle daughter is doing. It's been around 10 years since I have been able to get up there so keeping in touch is so important to me.

Till next time
This is one of my 2015 Finish-Along
and here is my list
