I really appreciate working on vintage quilts. It's so nice to have them finally get out of the cupboard.
This was quilted with s.i.d. along all the blocks and around all the applique and embroidery. Setting triangles got the cute little tulip/heart motif. It took sooo long to do the s.i.d., I cannot imagine how long she worked on the applique and embroidery.
Summer entertainment on Saturday night.
Step 1: cocktail
Step 2: recipe & music (excellent c.d., by the way!) Notice that the recipe is printed from the internet. I find myself using the cookbooks less and less. But I need to get things organized somehow because I can never remember WHERE the recipe I want is located. Book? Printed and in the recipe box? A WORD file on the hard drive? Pinterest?
After I get the relish in the pot my next canning job will probably be the Orchard Fruit Chili. I prefer this over regular chili sauce - it's made with brown sugar instead of white, and cider vinegar instead of white. It has a more mellow flavour, and it's sweeter with all the fruit.
