It is hard to believe that the first month of the year is nearly over. School starts again this week after the long summer break and I will have to remember to slow down at all the school crossings.
Today my house smells like a 'pickle factory'. This morning I picked the remainder of the beetroot and pickled them. I've also made some rhubarb chutney.
We spent some time this morning weeding the vegie garden, it's hard to find what is left in there as the pumpkins and weeds have taken over. While wandering around the garden I picked the first of the cucumbers & zucchini , we're doing much better with them this year. Last year the cucumbers in particular were a real flop.
Also picked a couple of kilos of plums, not sure yet whether to just stew them or make them into jam.
I'm finding it very difficult to get motivated and into the sewing mood, I did make these 2 blocks as the first installment of BOM that I signed up for. I'd like to make it in country/autumn colours.
I'm also trying to make it from my stash, even after two years the stash doesn't seem to have diminished. Honestly, I didn't have a very big one to start with and most of the fabric I've bought lately has been for backings.
