The table runner is now ready to quilt. I modified the pattern to fit my table by adding another design unit and the triangles on the ends. For “batting” I used the Teflon fabric that is made for pot holders, so that when something hot is placed on it, the table will still be protected. I don’t even trust myself not to forget.
Then it was time to do some of those mundane tasks – like cleaning out the refrigerator. These chores never take care of themselves.
And the garden is still producing, so I picked and cleaned kale. There are still more foods (beets, parsley, peppers, celery, etc.) to pick and though some will stay for the winter, some need to be taken care of – maybe tomorrow. And to my surprise there are dozen of volunteer tomato plants 2-6″ high. But the freeze will take care of them.
I brought the Meyers Lemon tree and the lime tree into the house as I’m not sure when the first freeze will be, but usually by mid October and we are there. Since the lemon is blooming, I’m anticipating wonder fragrance from this little plant. The little lime tree nearly died, but I see it is coming back. I promise to take better care of it. See all the parsley near the bottom. Will that grow in the house throughout the winter?
