We got the frame made for my Pie Menu finish this weekend, so I asked my husband to make a new grouping for me. I had already had the coffee piece hanging where it is in this picture. I had the Jane Austen piece hanging somewhere else. I thought those 2, along with the Pie Menu would make a nice grouping. Who doesn't enjoy a cup of coffee with a slice of warm homemade pie?!! Oh, I can almost taste the nice cherry pie right now. Or how about shoestring apple? Oh my!!!
We also FINALLY got my tree to cross card piece hung. It looks so nice hanging in our bedroom.
Lastly, I am posting a picture of the ornament that I am working on. It is for a RR exchange. I am posting the picture now, because I want to show it before backstitching. This is one of those pieces that really doesn't POP until the backstitching is finished!
On the canning side of things, I got 28 pints of tomatoes out of the stack that was on the table in my previous post. They will be good this winter in chili & spaghetti, stuffed peppers, etc...
Yesterday, my husband & I picked again. I made 14 pints of hot salsa last night & then 16 pints of mild salsa this morning. I told the guys there are probably that many tomatoes out there again to be picked. I think I will wait til tomorrow!!!!! I am canned out for tonight.
I also did 15 ears of sweet corn last night. Yum! It will taste so good this winter.
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate each & every one of you!!!!
