I have been working in the garden in all my spare moments lately. My fingers are a nice shade of yellowish orange from peeling carrots for hours on end. This year my carrots are thicker and shorter than usual...any ideas why?I like to have the carrots ready to cook right out of the freezer, so I peel, chop and blanched them, then put them into freezer bags in the right amount to feed my family one meal, or to toss into a stew.
Since the fall is here, the flowers are gone until the spring, but I am happy that I have my own quilted garden to enjoy throughout the winter. I made this quilt top at Quilt Canada last year in a class with Anne Morrell Robinson- you can read about it here. Here is a close up of the quilting of the sky. I put a little dragonfly and a butterfly in the quilting. I still plan to bead the flowers, but I'll say it's "done" for now!
And the big announcement of the winner of my Quilt Show Celebration prize...my sister picked the lucky blog reader....congratulations to Millie!
