I keep hoping at least one of you will join me in making a pair of socks. Here is the latest finish,
My splurge. I had no cotton yarn and wanted to do some dish and washcloths.
It took 3 days to cook down the tomatoes (from the freezer) into sauce. I like it to cook to about 1/2 what I started with before I process it. I have 9 pints this time with more tomatoes in the freezer that will become sauce before summer comes. It is so much better to be able to do this while the weather is cool.
Some days I don’t feel like much has been achieved because a some of several things were done. To day we planted 85 daffodils here beside the grapes because I didn’t want to go to all the trouble of digging up grass where I wanted them and they are getting in so late. But I didn’t want to lose them. They will be done blooming before the grapes need the room, so they won’t interfere with each other. Maybe in the fall, I can “get a better start” or I may just like some color where they are. (the dark area). In another place we put the last 15 tulips. The ones planted at the right time are now coming up.
We picked up some starting soil and other items at the wholesale house.
I put a quilt on the frame to quilt. And I started the binding on another quilt. Then I cast on for another pair of socks, – a number of starts today, but now I need finishes.
