Say It Ain't So.....

...Summer is over! It's Labor Day Weekend (In the U.S.), Fresh Sewing Day for September, and the unofficial end of summer. The last picnic, grandkids go back to school on Wednesday, we all buckle down and get back to work. I hope that's true for getting back to my quilting, which has been a bit slack and sorry of late.

L to R

 All of these projects were WIPs or practice, some even ventured into being UFO's. I started the month with ten WIPs, I'm down to seven. I would really like to finish up more of these this month, because before you know it, I'll need to be working on Christmas projects.

Other projects this month have been canning and freezing all sorts of garden produce for winter. My stepdaughter is a wiz at canning, so we have been canning the last two Fridays. Here's yesterday's bounty.

Roasted red peppers and dill pickles

Salsa and bread & butter pickles
I'm ready for the picnics to end, put away the boat, cut back the gardens and get down to some serious welcome fall!

Today I'm linking up with Lynne for Fresh Sewing Day September at Lily's Quilts.
