Fall has Arrived

Fall roared in like an angry beast this last week. We went from 80+ degrees to 40 degree weather and lots of rain, wind and cold for 3 days and today the sun is back with about mid 50's. The rest of the week is supposed to be real fall weather in the 60's with chances of rain.

I finally quilted the quilt in the picture. One of my customers sent it to me to quilt it belonged to her MIL and they found it when they were cleaning out some things. I put a muslin back on it and bound it in muslin. I had to quilt it with a meander due to some fullness in the center, but it came out much better than I figured it would.

On the home front DH has been canning pepper relish, corn and peppers, and pickling corn on the cob. This is his first attempt at canning so far so good. I thought I had a picture of his jars, but can't find it at the moment.

I have also managed to get this quilted so it just needs the binding sewn down and then it is going up to WA to put in my sister's booth at the quilt show for sale. It's made of flannel and can be used as a wall hanging or a lap quilt.

So working in the quilt room, quilting and canning are what's been happening around here what have you been up to lately?
