I'm terribly sorry for the lapse in posts. It's been a crazy few weeks. I've been canning tomatoes like mad every night after work, trying to keep up on the garden, finish a quilt for display at Tammy Tadd's, make bags for Jennie, and help a friend get her house in order to sell! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it all! The house turned out amazing, if I say so myself! We did our very own version of Designed to Sell. I'll have to take photos to show you all.

The tomatoes were exciting. I've never canned them before, and it ends up that it's ridiculously easy! I think this means I'll have to plant even more tomatoes next year. I want to make salsa, tomato sauce, gazpacho, soup, and all things tomato based and can them for the winter! Imagine opening garden fresh salsa in February! It practically makes me giddy just thinking about it.
I'll post photos of the projects next week when I can breathe again. This weekend is insane as well. Friday, Jennie and I are going to the Madison Quilt Expo. I'm rather excited. I've never been to this show.
Saturday I'm working. And finally, Sunday, Amy and I are hitting the Renegade Craft Fair!It should be great. There are a lot of really interesting crafters going to be there. I'm totally looking forward to checking out the Sublime Stitching booth since I've decided that I really should learn how to embroider. I know, it's insane, but they have just the cutest embroidery patterns these days and I just can't help myself! I mean how cute would this be on the pocket of one of my grocery bags along with the cute sushi fabric as the main print?
Squirrel Momma will be there too. She makes the cutest pin cushion thingies. I'm totally in love with her hedgehogs and penguins. They are just too cute!

Well, that's all I have time for today. I'll try to post again very soon. Back to work for me! Bags and quilts to make!

Hey Vicki
Are you talking about machine embroidery or by hand? IF by hand I would be happy to show you the stitches I know.

Thank you for caving to my demands that you blog. I appreciate it!

Thank you for caving to my demands that you blog! I certainly sounds as though you have been busy! We are going to be starting a hand-embroidery club at TTD- perhaps you can work with Nan to get you started!
