The sweet corn is plentiful right now and even though you think you’ve enjoyed sweet corn, until you’ve picked it in the field and taken it directly to the house and cooked it, you have not really had the ultimate sweet corn experience. And Iowa sweet corn is some of the best in the world!
I think it’s nearly the most delicious meal we have – sweet corn and sliced tomatoes!
And when you have a good neighbor, you might get a couple dozen ears to cut off the cob and freeze with butter and half and half.
Soon these elderberries will be ready to make into syrup – something I’ve never done but Sam wants us to learn so thank God for the internet.
The pampas grass is shooting up plumes and the hydrangeas are ready to pick for winter.
Colton spends his days in the hay bunk sleeping.
Ivy is visiting for a couple days while her family enjoys the bike trails at Lanesboro, MN. Walks through the woods are always fun!
This pattern for Rail Fence will be in our online store very soon under the category of “quick quilts”. If you know someone wanting to learn, this would be a possibility.
You know how it goes when I try to take a picture on this table – Millie is right there! Grooming herself!
I am going to quilt the chickens tonite but I thought I’d show you the back before I start. We think pressing is as important as the piecing! We hate having seams flipped up making a “bump” in the finished quilt. Connie is the queen of pressing! I do okay but my backs are never as flat as hers.
I also had to piece my backing to get it big enough – using the very last strips in the jellyroll.
I can’t wait to show you this finished quilt and the “freedom” quilts I made with the leftovers!
Love this little Dirty Dozen house quilt!
Have a nice weekend, Everybody!
