This past week has been dedicated to quilting items that are being donated to Calgary flood victims.
Love this batik quilt.
Quilted with Willowy Weeds pantograph, a freebie pattern from the Quilters Niche website.
Here's a scrappy Snowball quilt going as a donation.
Love the little hourglasses that show up between the snowballs.
This has been quilted with Starburst pantograph, a free design from Urban Elementz website.
If you have a quilt or two that you'd like to donate and you're in southern Ontario - you can deliver them to Cherished Pieces quilt shop in Tillsonburg until Sept. 18th.
In some down time yesterday I harvested a sinkfull of basil. Half of it got pulverized and made into pesto - 3 cups worth. I took one cup to my darling nephew and his wife (1-800-luke-tek ... my I.T. nephew. And don't phone that number, I'm just being funny) and the other two cups are in my fridge. To DH's delight, I took them a couple of zucchinis too.
What a friggin' mess!!! Four measuring cups, shredder, food processer bowl & blade, blender & lid (Helpful Tip: don't use the blender to make pesto - FAIL!), cookie sheet from roasting the pine nuts, and cutting/mixing/scooping tools. On top of that my fingernails are BLACK from the basil, and the whole house is, um, fragrant with basil. Of course, while I was elbow deep in olive oil & parmesan cheese the phone rang. aargh... I'm hoping the green oily stain will come out of my pink t-shirt, otherwise it will get added to the growing pile of 'cooking clothes'. I have, like, SIX aprons in the pantry. Apparently, though, no brain to go with them.
