Yesterday and today have found me busy in the kitchen. In fact, so busy that now I'm having back spasms and still have to clean up the kitchen! Oh oh!
This is what I've been up to:
The two day canning total is 20 qts. tomatoes, 12 qts. chili sauce,26 pints zuchinni relish, 26 bags, frozen zuchinni, 22 bags frozen green beans, 18 bags frozen carrots. I also made refrigerator pickles and a pasta salad. I'm exhausted but content. There is a certain satisfaction in doing things like this for us to enjoy throughout the winter months.
Here is a picture of some of the beautiful sunflowers that line the road at our trailer. We've been told to feel free to cut as many as we want so I've enjoying this bouquet all week.
Here's hubby relaxing on Labor Day. No labor was done by either of us except to make meals. :-)
And Chloe relaxed too!
I promised you pictures of the blanket I made for our newest yet-to-be born granddaughter. I didn't want to show it until after the baby shower and then I forgot! Here's the front.
This is the back. I tried to find a way to finish it so all the weaving in wasn't showing and this is what I came up with. Flannel with suns and moons on it. I hemmed it and then crocheted it to the knitted blanket. Then I hand tied it like a quilt. Overall I'm happy with the way it turned out.
I had extra flannet so I made a recieving blanket to match, crocheting around the edges.
Well I'm off to go clean up the kitchen. Anyone have a few minutes and would like to help?
Have a wonderful week.
