I didn't have the time to make anything for the Simply Primitives update this month but I will be returning September the 15th with new Fall/Halloween pieces.
This has been another hot, busy week of canning so there hasn't been any sewing since Tuesday. I still have a couple of orders to get done and I'm trying to keep something on Ebay.
I'm still canning stringbeans and tomatoes, I cannot believe the beautiful tomatoes we've been picking. There are huge red, pink and a few yellow tomatoes, I just can them all together. The flavor is so good!
I think often, as I work on the tomatoes in my air-conditioned kitchen, of my maternal Grandmother. She canned huge quantities of vegetables in her hot kitchen on a wood cookstove. She also made lots of cucumber pickles, pickled beets and peaches, relishes and even canned chickens and sausages. In fact my Mom used to say that very often the only thing her Mother had to buy were flour and sugar. Can you imagine going to the grocery store and just buying sugar and flour? I know I can't. But I honestly think they ate much better, not to mention healthier, than we do.
Anyway, I hope you like the new look and keep checking back to see what's new in my world.
