Debuting on Ebay Tonight
Tonight the auction for my Lumina Pumpkin Make-Do will start. Hope you get a chance to take a look at this piece, I love how it turned out. My Ebay link is to the right, simply click on it and it'll take you right to it.
I had hoped to list a witch next but I've not had time this week to work on her, so be on the lookout soon for a new witch.
I started my first batch of pickle yesterday by cutting up a bunch of cukes into the old 2 gallon crock I use for my pickle making. Now it simply sits in the brine mixture for the next week, I follow that up with 3 days of alum water to crisp up the cukes.
I also grated more squash yesterday to freeze for soups and stews this Fall and Winter. Next I'll cook some squash and put them in my freezer.
Since our weather has been on the slightly cooler side (at least for us), I decided to make a chicken vegetable soup using some of the fresh veggies from the garden. I used our own onions, peas, corn and tomatoes along with potatoes, carrots, celery, butter beans and chicken and had a delicious one pot meal for supper last night along with a peach cobbler I made. That's the kind of meal I love, make it earlier in the day, have it for supper and enough left over for lunches or another evening meal.
The tomatoes are really starting to come in, so in the next few days to a week I'll start canning them. I'm always happiest to see the tomatoes start coming in, to me there's nothing that can beat a freshly picked tomato. One of my favorite summer meals is a tomato and bacon sandwich.
So that's what I've been up to and will be for awhile yet! I hope to eek out a bit of time for some sewing this week so I'll have something new for Ebay next weekend too.
Hope you all have a great week~Diane
