It’s been a busy few days. My dear cousin sent me a beautiful batch of pickling cucumbers this past Tuesday. They spent the night in the refrigerator, and on Wednesday morning I sliced them and put them in lime water. Thursday they came out of the lime water and spent the night in spices and vinegar syrup. This morning I canned nine pints and two quarts of beautiful, crisp sweet pickles. The pickles in the bowl went great with the spicy black bean burger I had for lunch.
Work on Nicki Lee’s block has begun. I’ve got a long way to go before it is finished, but here’s a peek at some of the work I’ve done on it. The flower motif is not attached, but I am pretty sure it will be. The stitching on the lace has just begun…
This seam treatment is far from finished, but aren’t the lace butterflies pretty? They are hand-dyed by Nicki Lee herself…but they are mine, and I can use them on her block if I want to. :)
And a final picture of my progress on Nicki Lee’s block…once again, this seam is not finished. It needs a few beads to add a little bling, but all in good time. I’m enjoying working on this beautiful block and hope to do it justice.
A heart for Pam…this picture shows only the naked block. I have begun working on it, but I’ll share a picture of the work when it’s finished. I love making these little crazy quilt hearts!
Here’s a picture of the first Brown Study Round Robin block I will work on. It came to me all the way from Australia. I’m still “studying” it to figure out where I want to embellish and what I want to do to it. I absolutely love the tree fabric.
That’s about it for craftiness over the past few days…and the near days to come will be spent finishing these projects and sending them on their way.
I’m still waiting for my Kombucha tea to finish brewing. So far it looks good. I have high hopes for it.
Until next time…
