As you can see, I have been very busy.....and this is not all of them, I have given or consumed 11 more jars.  Won't say how many were consumed....hummmmm  Just about anyone who comes to my home goes home with some.

 I have stopped canning and just make the juice and freeze it for canning later in the year.  Maybe Christmas Presents with a nice hand towel?

My son's girlfriend sells Sarah Briggs jewelry and so I made her some snap bags for her really nice pieces.
His girlfriend came down for the week-end to be with my husband and I while our son worked.  I guess she likes us, we spoil her and in turn she spoils us.  She made supper Sat. night, breakfast Sunday Morning and then supper that Sunday evening and even cleaned up the mess.  I thought I had died and gone to heaven except for the extra pounds I gained from her awesome cooking.

I have been working on this one quilt forever and finally got the borders quilted.  Trust me, I am in no competition with "Green Fairy Quilts" but I am sure pleased with the outcome.  Now to just bind it.
I purposely didn't show you the whole quilt so you would not get bored with it.

Those of you who like Connecting Threads, they are having an awesome sale on their fabrics.  I purchased background fabrics (solids) for $2.20....if that isn't a deal I don't know what is.

Goodness, you have been busy. How nice to be spoiled! She sounds like a jewel and a keeper for sure. Love the snap bags you made, also. Sadly, I guess I will have to check out Connecting Threads. Nola
