Blueberries and Spools
Yesterday I worked on quilting the Modern Robin piece and my Foxes. Did you see my Dr. Seuss verse for the Foxes last post?
I did the 5 reds for the July color. The color of August is Indigo. Well, I have so many blues I thought I would add to the warm side of the color wheel rather than the cool side. So in that vein, I made a few orange and a yellow.
And I need to trim the Spools Quilt and prepare it for binding. I won the spool blocks in the Block Lotto at River City Quilt Guild a number of years back.
We finally got to the Farmer's Market where I scored a ton of blueberries and the eggs I have been devoid of for more than a week now.
This morning I took 6 pints of blueberries and made blueberry syrup. This really is better done in the winter but the blueberries are better done in the summer! I had two jars not seal so I cleaned off the tops of the jars and re-processed them in the water bath. They both sealed.
So now I have 11 jars - 6 small and 5 large ones. We like to put it on pancakes and over pound cake at night for late night desserts.
Since I control the sugar that goes into it, it is healthier and of course there are all those blue beauties in there too!
