This is the scene of the cornfield from my porch. It’s beginning to turn golden and Rick says it still needs rain to fill the ears with kernels.
School started yesterday and Reed said it was “fun”! All kids should say that. This morning was rainy so I started the dreaded job of defrosting the upright freezer in the pantry. Oh, how I hate this job! But it was overdue! The sun came out so we went to the garden where I pulled up the cucumber vines, picked tomatoes and checked on the pumpkins.
I picked these two patty pan squashes which I grow only for decoration. If picked when small, I’ve been told they are delicious. I really should try them sometime.
I saw white pumpkins, green pumpkins, dipper gourds, some orange pumpkins and the patty pans. Maybe there are more in the patch than I realize-let’s hope so.
Remember I said I was working on a small project that used only one size strip, 1 -1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Here it is made from grunge dots. Not quilted yet but then I started cutting other strips – prints, because I have so many 1 -1/2″ strips.
Here is a start using prints with nothing matching or coordinating.
It’s a great little mindless project to keep by my machine. All pieces are cut 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″.
What are you working on?
Iowa has been in the news this week and not for a good reason. Mollie Tibbets, a U of Iowa student has been missing for over a month and her body was found last week. The man who allegedly killed her led authorities to her body in a cornfield. Very sad.
It’s time to dig out the fall quilts to hang up – such a huge job!
