The Hurrier I Go

Here it is the 22nd of August already. I need a way to slow down the days. I finely entered something in the fair this year and won two red ribbons. I entered the Double Irish Chain quilt and one I did many years ago called White Bear from the book called Quilted Legends of the West. The book says that, "When the Indians brought goat skins to explorer Captain Cook in 1778, he thought they were white bear. Explorer Alexander MacKenzie saw the animals and decided they were white buffalo, and Lewis and Clark thought they were mountain sheep. The Mountain goat is not a goat at all, but an antelope". When I put it in the guild show in WA it took viewer's choice and my husband liked it so much that I gave it to him as a birthday gift.

Today I am attempting to can applesauce and some apricots. It's been 30 years since I last canned anything so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Back to the never ending chore of putting fabric away.

How did the canning go??
Way to go on the quilts. I didn't make it to the fair afterall, so I'm glad you posted pictures.
