Some fabric comes in...

Yesterday was the meeting of our mini-mini group. I'd done NOTHING, but it's always fun to visit with people.

One of our members brought a bag of short, thin strips of feed sack a guild speaker had given her YEARS ago. I took a handful with the promise that I'd make something out of it by the next meeting.

The first (tiny) block is done:

I also stopped at Jo-Ann and bought another 2.5 yards of Kona PFD that I use for backing/borders on a quilt-in-progress. Ralph is not impressed.

Long time not blogging

Now that my course of antibiotics for Lyme disease is almost finished, I'm feeling almost human again.

It was HOT HOT HOT this weekend - the Montgomery County Farm Tour was this weekend, but I just couldn't face it in the heat, with other stuff to do. The only stop we did was at Rock Hill Orchard.

We got un-homogenized milk so TMOTH can try making cheese, and lovely peaches, and a few other things. But mainly we went because I'd heard they had delicious ice cream, and I wasn't led wrong - it was wonderful.

I made blueberry-lime jam from some uninspired blueberries and bought strawberries on the grocery run for strawberry jam.

And I'm working on a UFO - a Valentine's wallhanging.
