Girl Scout Registrar

Tonight is my Girl Scout Leaders' meeting up in Laconia and I'm going early to be able to use some Joann's coupons while I'm in the big city. I hope to be able to find a copy of the newest Fons & Porter scrappy magazine where Nancy from Michigan had her cover story quilt.

I also did quite a few hand-rinsing of my pretty new veggie fabrics in Orvus and hung out on my trusty clothesline. There was one red and purple paisley, too.

 The potatoes must be Yukon Gold, don't 'cha think?
Then Luau and I wandered down to the orchard, but NO amount of my chirping, kissy noises, or whistling would prompt her to raise her head from all that deer scent. So I got a great picture of her rump, LOL!

That tree is the Liberty Apple variety and it produces beautiful red apples. They are good for eating but go soft quickly and then are better for applesauce. Too soft for pies.
But the yellow Honey Crisps are great pie apples.
As for the night before last, a second frost had been predicted, so Felix stripped more tomatoes off the vines. We had no more places to put them! He decided to leave them outdoors in his garden cart covered up with two dog quilts. It worked perfectly! Here is where he began sorting them. Don't you love the colors? And that one dear little late-bloomer dandelion in the grass is for the accent yellow! I guess that's what Bonnie Hunter calls your "Quilter's Eyes!"

Hi Vic!!

What are you going to do with all those tomatoes? Salsa? Tomato Sauce? I can't wait to see. This summer I pickled tons of green tomatoes. They are delicious. I have to go to my local farmer's market to get mine. Lucky you having a farm and orchard.

Happy Quilting.
