Design Wall Monday July 15, 2013

No sewing done in the last couple of days, again. We went out today and picked up some blueberries and raspberries and also some farm fresh peas. I actually had never had fresh peas before yesterday, when we picked some up to try. Before then, they had always been either frozen, or canned. I couldn't believe how good they were! We shelled them and cooked them up, and had them for supper last night. There were enough left over to put into the fridge for today. I had them cold, with chicken salad for supper, and they were just as yummy. So, today's job was to shell, and blanch and package up 2 bags of peas. After they are frozen, I'm going to taste test them again, and if they work out, we'll spring for a bushel of them to do for our freezers. The raspberries and the blueberries are for jams, which will be tomorrow's job.
I did manage to get my blocks for the Bonnie Hunter Lazy Sunday Mystery put up onto the wall, just to see what they look like. I have no idea where she is going with this one. There are still lots of parts that haven't been all put together yet. I'm guessing it will be alternating blocks, set on point, with maybe a sashing of some sort between the blocks. I am noticing looking at this picture that the yellow star points have kind of disappeared, but that might be because the lighting isn't the greatest.  There are still 4 patches left over, although that might be because I made too many, and a whole pile of green half square triangles left over. Right now, it looks like I have blocks for 2 totally unrelated quilts up there, but that is the fun part of mysteries, seeing how they eventually work out.
I'm linking up to Judy's Patchwork Times where there are walls with lots of fun and interesting stuff.

  1. That's funny...when I looked at your photo I thought you had two different quilts going as well!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
