Finally Using the Ghastlies




J got me this Alexander Henry 'Ghastlies' fabric ages ago and I have been waiting for the right inspiration to use it. I was also thinking about folks that I need to make quilts for and thumbing through Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen and have always liked the their Supernova quilt pattern. That is the inspiration for this one. I'm not quite sure how it will turn out (hopefully not Ghastlie), but there will be more than one star and I will have to figure out how to fit them together. Planning is not my style ;) More to come.

The Fruits of Our Labour




We spent a good part of the start of the week canning after a trip to Jean-Talon Market in Montreal.

We did sweet, sour and dill pickles, tomato sauce, peaches, peach walnut conserve and red pepper jelly. The basement shelves are stocked and I am looking forward to a little more sewing in my off hours.
