August 2013

August 2013

I made a few things this August, more than I expected. I also made a lot of pickle dishes but there are more to go.

Crabapple Jelly

I cooked a lot in August, I've been eating better, and I made beautiful jelly and also jam.

my gazebo

And I spent a lot of time in my gazebo, under the walnut tree, but I am back in the city now.

I am joining everyone at Lynne from Lily's Quilts for Fresh Sewing Day, see you there.

September is always a month of renewal - back to school and work, starting the fall. I am excited to find my socks and sweaters and enjoy it.

Best,

Leanne

  2. I just want to lounge under the walnut tree and hand stitch with some fresh baked bread smothered in jelly. Love the arrow blocks.

  3. You really did accomplish a lot last month....I agree about lounging under the walnut tree,sigh. As for looking for my socks...that's not gonna happen until the snow flies....let's hope it comes a little later this year.

  12. Wow, you got lots done in August. Afraid I wasn't nearly as productive. I like your comment that Sept is a month of renewal . . . I can renew my goals for getting things done.

  13. Ohhh... you have a walnut tree? Are you able to eat any? Down here, we have pecan trees. Not in our yard, sadly.

    I love watching your works on instagram.

  14. Love autumn but not yet please!

    Great stuff made there and what a stunning relaxing place to do it in!

    Trying to resist starting an economy square/hourglass quilt but it is hard!
