Not one I enjoy...

I started the book "Prairie Tale" and it is just not my kind of book. It is totally not what I was thinking it would be.  Guess that will leave more time for quilting.. :)

I have been making salsa.  My hubby,  oldest son and grandkids  love this easy to make home made salsa. They can almost eat it faster than I can cann it.  Our tomatoes were small this year but they were meaty. Very good for canning salsa.

Here is what I have been working on as far as quilting. I really enjoy working on this kind of quilt because I can make them and not have to do a lot of planning and they use up scraps and especially UGLY fabric. You know that fabric that is in our stash that we pull out and think, "Where in the world did that fabric come from? Did I buy that? What was I thinking?" Cutting them down to 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 inches  don't make them look so bad.  Come on now I am sure we all have some. If you haven't tried making a string quilt, get out those scraps and sew one up. I bet you will like it and have lots of fun making it.  

Moving on.....

Summer is almost over, the weather is cooling down nicely here. All the books in my previous posts have been read.  I am a "Little House" fan and so I thought I might like to read this book. I found out about it on another blog.  Lots of intresting things can be learned by reading blogs. :) I am half way through the book and it is  intresting  but not one of those books that when you get started ya just don't want to put it down.
That is just how I feel about it. Others may feel differently about it. So give it a try and post a comment here if you would like.
